“There is never an absolute answer to everything, except of course that you have to do your squats”
Mark Rippetoe -an American strength training coach and author.
Do you start each new year vowing to lose weight or improve your training performance? If so, are you among the 80 per cent of the population whose New Year’s resolutions failed by February?
Training is what the body needs to adapt and develop. Consider that without sunlight plants struggle to grow, similarly, without training our bodies will not develop and grow much.
Your body needs training as a stimulus to take it outside of its normal comfort zone, which ultimately means the body has to make changes to develop. You may only be able to do a bodyweight squat at the start of your training, but after the body is exposed to training consistently and repeatedly it will get stronger and you might be squatting with a barbell on your back after several weeks.
