  • Instinctive Training

    image

    Hi everyone! Welcome back to this week topic, Instinctive Training! For the most part, I'd say this blog is more directed towards advanced fitness individuals. If you aren’t at an advanced skillset in your training, please don’t feel discouraged and feel free to read along. There will come a time where this might apply to you. The end goal here is that there will be some good information everyone can take away from. With that being said, let’s get started!

    What is instinctive training?

    Instinctive training is based off of a feeling and/or what you think you need to train physically. Your typical workout routine is put on hold and you train as often as you’d like, whatever body part(s) you’d like and working them as hard as you'd like. Instinctive training is a type of training that is best intended to be temporary rather than permanent in a workout program. Instinctive training can give you that “results” edge to keep things mentally fresh and physically different. Although you can technically use instinctive training (if you are advanced enough) long term, instinctive training is better implemented occasionally. Otherwise, the training over time becomes the same. The whole point of instinctive training is to feel and do something different.

    Keeping things new and fresh

    Instinctive training is a great way to prevent boredom from your regular workouts as well as increase physical results. Keeping things new and fresh will keep things fun, interesting and challenging. Keeping things new and fresh can also be the catalyst to improved physical change and better performance.

    A successful strategy 

    Instinctive training is a very well known (but not used often) successful strategy. The combination of variety and diversity in a person’s workouts keeps things fun and interesting. But what I’d like to note and on the flip side is that instinctive training is very hard to master. The only real down side of instinctive training is that a person can become lazy in organizing their workouts. They end up throwing what they feel like doing (not necessarily what they need to train) and call it instinctive training. By this time, the training implemented is not really instinctive training but just random workouts put together with no organization and/or strategy behind it. So, as you can see; there can be a very fine line between instinctive training and unorganized training. Therefore, a person should exercise caution when implementing instinctive training.

    For the advanced 

    Training whatever you think needs to be trained is definitely a honed skill and takes time to develop or “experience”. Instinctive training would be considered an advanced fitness tactic and as mentioned earlier, can be very hard to master. With that being said, I wouldn’t recommend this strategy to anyone who is at the Beginner or Intermediate fitness level. But if you are at the Advanced fitness level, you can definitely give it a shot and see if it works for you.

    What you can do

    I personally don’t use instinctive training very often as a strategy and/or tactic (maybe once in a blue moon). I more or less use program timing and design instead. Constantly making programs that are challenging and out of the comfort zone, can be like going from one end of the spectrum of training to the other. Which in a way can be like instinctive training but more sustainable for the long term. Instinctive training excels at spontaneity and short-term in a workout program/routine.

    If you are at the Beginner and/or Intermediate fitness level, you can try changing your workout routine a little more frequently. Or you can try workouts that push, challenge and/or put you out of your comfort zone a little more. The whole point of instinctive training is to challenge and promote growth. Changing workouts routines more frequently and going a bit out of your comfort zone is also a less aggressive way to do just that.

  • Weird question but…

    Does anyone else in The X-Files fandom consider Krycek disabled?

    It’s something that truly doesn’t ever cross folks minds, we just see him as a double crossing rat bastard who’s going around fooling everyone. Is he truly working for JUST The Syndicate or himself? After watching The X-Files for awhile I realized that Krycek is indeed an amputee! He has his left arm cut off in “Terma”, which is the ninth episode in season 4. I honestly think it’s BRILLANT that him being disabled isn’t the focal point for his character, he’s still threatening, and someone most fans love to hate. Even if it has never crossed your mind until now, his disability doesn’t knock down his fear factor!

    If anything I think it made him even more foreboding! Think about it like this, even after getting his arm cut off, he comes right back to his evil ways, and still continues to be an opposing force. Nothing could truly deter him from his sneaky activities, so you know for a fact he’s dedicated to his work! That and the whole “villian losing some kind of limb or eye makes them even more evil and creepy!” trope applies to him as well! We often see him wearing a fake arm and holding it close to his side. I can’t be the only one who’s curious about how his life changed after losing his arm.

    Not only the physical but psychological effects of what happened to him. There’s a lot that goes into losing something like a limb, other than navigating life differently. Regardless, I love filling in the blanks about Krycek’s disability! I have tons of headcanons about how he handled getting it cut off and how it effected him mentally! If any other fans share the same thinking process as I do, feel free to add onto this post or reblog it!

    IF ANY AMPUTEES SEE THIS, PLEASE ADD ON ANY EXPERIENCES (only if you want to, please feel safe enough to do it!) OR THOUGHTS YOU HAVE ON KRYCEK’S DISABILITY!!!
