Crossfit is Getting Old | Full Movement Fitness Training is in

So what is out? Crossfit still has a following, and it has its purpose, but it has limiting factors when it comes to being fully fit in all the planes of motion. Doing an amazing squat is awesome, but the trend, according to Men's Fitness is now moving to be able to withstand certain loads but to have the body travel in different planes of motion, and with different incline grades in your surrounding. That is the key to actually being fit for life. The fountain of youth lies in the ability to be strong, have muscular endurance and to be able to utilize those muscles when they are acted upon. More and more people are realizing that just because you can bring 135 pounds over your head in a closed setting has limited purpose, but to be able to carry 80 pounds uphill for a quarter mile is not only more gratifying, but can be more realistic for some people, especially if it resembles manual labor. This is why Spartan Races, obstacle racing and adventure racing events are becoming more popular. It is because they require the body to be able to move functionally without being too muscle bound, which can create stiffness. Being quick, strong, have great muscular endurance and to be able to withstand  environmental factors, such as wind, snow, sleet and hail through distances of 5, 9, or 14 mile courses is what is trending nowadays. Really, it is mimicking what real fitness should be like. You train in all different types of styles, but when you take this out in the environment and really test  your body, you can always expect the unexpected, and that is what we got from the latest fitness trends article from Men's Fitness.The Art of Personal Training by Kisar Dhillon107 SE Washington StreetSuite 137Portland, Oregon 97214503-953-0241
