Why 'Heavy Lifting' All The Time May Lead To WEAKNESS ... And Death ... by Chris Wilson
Do you have a LOVE-HATE relationship with the weights?
Do you love ‘feeling’ strong, but hate being in pain afterwards?
Maximum effort strength comes at a great cost to us; one that we are willing to overlook since being strong is awesome.
Even though we hit the gym regularly, we spend most of our time working, sitting at a desk, driving in a car, or slouching on the couch.
Our strength is no longer functional.
The link between our strength and how it relates to our weight has been severed.
Sure, we can haul BIG weights in a controlled environment (the gym), but we can rarely haul our own body weight and move like we did as children.
I'm talking playground strength.
Why is this a problem?
Because the worse your strength-to-weight ratio is, the higher your chance of an early death.
In a study from Brazil of 2,000 people aged between 51-81 years old, researchers discovered that maintaining high levels of muscle strength, power-to-body weight ratio and co-ordination, had a favorable influence on life expectancy.
In other words, poor strength-to-weight ratio knocks years off our lives.
We’ve forgotten that the measure of ‘true strength’ is more than just your one rep max.
