If You Are Human, You Need to Lift

“KEEP LIFTING: Those days when it was just a bunch of beefy blokes in the weights section of the gym, admiring their veiny biceps in the mirror, are long gone. Well, actually that still is a familiar scene in some gyms – but you’re also highly likely to see lots more women, and people of all shapes and sizes, tackling those squat racks and barbell sets, as we increasingly accept that strength training won’t mean we’ll wake up looking like Popeye, but could help us become leaner, stronger, less prone to injury and better able to maintain a healthy weight. The industry bods at Fitness First think this trend’s only going to get stronger in 2017.”

The Science: BEGINNER TRAINING SCIENCE: LINEAR IMPROVEMENT

Being physically stronger improves the life of literally every single living thing on Earth. Being weaker never improves the quality of life of a person, or an animal, or even a plant.

Barbell training is the most efficient and effective way to improve strength. A base level of strength is needed before you can begin to specialize on more specific health/wellness, athletic performance, or physique goals. Any building must be based on a strong foundation before the main body of it’s specific architecture can take shape.

Our bodies are no different. Whether your want to train for a certain sport, compete in Bodybuilding, just get jacked for the beach, or just improve general wellness, your training should start with a basic linear strength training progression.

This ensures all your future specialized training work will be based on a solid foundation, thus securing success for specific goals and dreams.
