With so many “experts” and plenty of analytical pages on IG telling us what research and science says, it can get very confusing and often leave you with a mindset feeling overwhelmed and defeated. I figure I’d break it down into something very simple and easy to digest. Lactate dehydrogenase, anaerobic phosphogenic, anaerobic glycolytic, are all words you WILL NOT see here so please read on📖 • 🤷🏽♀️WHAT IS CONDITIONING? Conditioning is your body’s ability to strengthen your energy system and the ability to do so with or without oxygen. This will be very relative to individual depending on what they need to accomplish. For example, a soccer player conditioning is so her first and last sprint of the game can be as mirrored as possible, while a non athlete conditioning is to lower her resting heart rate and for recovery between and after workouts. • 🚴🏽♀️IS CONDITIONING FOR ME? Absolutely! Even if you are not an athlete, you can think of conditioning as insurance for when you turn 60+ yrs of age. You will still need to get up and off the toilet or couch, step out of the way of moving objects, and in general move throughout your day to day. • 💫HOW WE INTEGRATE FITNESS INTO YOUR PROGRAM AT DREAMFIT. Taking everything into account, conditioning is a part of everyones specific program. While someone who is a runner may have limited conditioning or conditioning applied in a different way compared to a non runner, we definitely feel conditioning to be an important piece of a long term fitness program. We integrate conditioning at @dreamfitboston through, interval training, superset strength training, jumps and throws. All done within the scope of your specific ability and needs. • I hope this provided value and cleared the air on some of the confusing information out there. Even as a coach, sometimes I start to feel overwhelmed with all the information available today so have a great day, see you on the next one✌🏽
