Five Elements of Fitness

Posted on 19 May, 2014 at 0:00

Sometimes we forget about the five elements of fitness:


  • muscular strength
  • muscular endurance
  • healthy body mass index (BMI)
  • cardio respiratory fitness
  • flexibility


We need to have all of these to truly be counted as fit.

On weight lifting days, occasionaly use a bit less weight and go for rep count: three to five sets of 20 reps. Or if your doing three sets in five minutes, go for six sets in the same five minutes. This is a great way to overcome plateaus and work on muscular endurance.

For muscular strength, advanced lifters can pick 10 body parts for one workout. Lift as weight as you can safely for a one set, 4-rep failure. Do this three times a week for one week and you'll be surprised how much strength you can gain.

Weight training is important because it aids in bone density and gives up better connective tissue strength. The other benefit is that with extra muscle comes a better BMI.

Good BMI keeps us risk-free from certain diseases, such as high blood pressure and type-2 dabetes.

Hopefully everyone knows that cardio fitness is what helps keep the heart healthy. It also keeps our resting heart rate down so we don't over-tax our heart. With a strong heart, blood flows freely and keeps the rest of the body healthy.

Many people entirely forget about flexibility. (When was the last time you stretched?) By stretching, we keep our connective tissue pliable and our muscles long. This is important so the joints and muscles in the body have a free range of motion — and this keeps us injury-free.

I wish to express some thanks to the writer for bailing me out of this type of crisis. As a result of researching through the world-wide-web and obtaining tricks that were not pleasant, I thought my life was well over. Being alive without the approaches to the issues you've solved by way of your good website is a crucial case, and the ones that would have adversely damaged my entire career if I hadn't come across your web blog. Your own personal mastery and kindness in controlling almost everything was tremendous. I'm not sure what I would've done if I had not come upon such a point like this. I'm able to at this point look ahead to my future. Thanks so much for this expert and results-oriented help.

I want to show thanks to this writer just for bailing me out of such a trouble. After surfing around throughout the the web and coming across recommendations that were not pleasant, I assumed my life was done. Being alive without the presence of strategies to the difficulties you have fixed through your main report is a critical case, and the ones that would have negatively damaged my entire career if I hadn't encountered your web site. Your good talents and kindness in controlling a lot of things was excellent. I'm not sure what I would have done if I hadn't encountered such a point like this. I can also now look forward to my future. Thanks for your time very much for the professional and result oriented help. I will not think twice to recommend your blog post to any person who needs to have assistance on this subject matter.
