Bigger, Stronger, Smarter
It’s me again, Paul Kwauk: here to share some thoughts about being bigger, stronger, and smarter at the same time. I may not be a certified physical fitness trainer but the years have taught me plenty about matters of health. My motivation for myself and everyone about exercising is to do it for preparedness. It’s nice to look and feel good but it’s better to have the capabilities to respond better to critical situations. So I’m saying do your workouts but make an effort to focus on functional training. Get in shape by bodybuilding and lift more through strength training but be practical and do those that could help you with your daily life and to manage during emergencies.
There are so many functional exercises that I could think of which may help anyone at all bulk up, have an increase in power, and wiser. But there are a few that I truly appreciate and even highly recommend. They are as follows:
Some of these you could do with the use of a barbell or a couple of dumbbells. The others, of course, with body weight only. What’s great about them is that they would let you work on your core muscles. They may be challenging since they target different muscle groups in a short period of time but doing them is worth it. The gains that you’ll have would be excellent, as long as you’d do them and consider using a lot of resistance. Doing them can help you work on your power to push and pull or in life carry and push objects and even people. They can let you develop your chest, arms, abdominal area, back, quads, hamstrings, and calves. You don’t even have to spend a long time doing isolation exercises and thus achieve efficiency too.
So try to improve your physical activities today by incorporating these things into your routines. Sure enough, you won’t regret doing them.
