Through my academic training and the number of cases I have studied, I have noticed that objectives are closely akin to each other: the people whom I look after have understood the importance of movement to stimulate muscle and to be in shape but are looking for simplicity and effectiveness, without excessive pain.
It is therefore necessary to ‘think about one’s movement’. The intention in movement – to link body and mind – will enable you to obtain results with fewer repetitions.
It is necessary to respect the basic rules which are effective stimulation, sufficient recuperation and an adapted diet. These are the basic essentials.
It is necessary to stimulate one’s main muscle – the heart – as well as the supporting muscles – the stabilising or deep muscles.
No need for weights and dumbbells. The only weight that you should carry is your own. You can therefore train wherever you like. Still the right ‘routine’ is necessary. A program based on simple movements which have a concrete effect on the posture.
Return to the source: your body knows but has forgotten. ‘Unlearn’ to understand better.
The human being is a ‘natural element’. The human body, and more particularly the muscles, must be stimulated in order to remain alive, that is to say in order to respond to the most diverse demands: walking, carrying something, climbing the stairs, etc…
Our skeleton is maintained by its muscles which must be stimulated in order to play their vital role, which is that of a ‘means of linking up’ the joints.
But the human body’s environment has changed, as has our way of life. We have become ‘modernised’ and for the comfort of modern life, that is to say being transported without any effort (lifts, cars, escalators, etc…), there is a price to pay.
We have all become aware of the damages of an inactive way of life to our organism (stress, articular pains, weight gain, etc.) However most of these ailments are reduced gradually when a regular and adapted physical activity is practised.
Still it is necessary to exercise intelligently…
Indeed, physical activity rhymes too often with letting off steam or performance. I have noticed that people associate pain with effectiveness. It must be necessary to suffer to reach one’s objectives and to concentrate a maximum amount of effort into one or two sessions, due to lack of time, in order to be successful. But the organism does not like to be ‘shocked’. If you rush your body (intensive training without respecting the basic rules, drastic diet, etc…) the expected results will be half tone: overly painful aches, exhaustion, wounds linked to bad positioning, etc… and the results will be lessened by the end of the program.
Give up the search for performance in favour of the search for well-being.
