Exercise Is Simple. It Really Is!

Today I got in an hour and a half run in Farmville. 

This is the trail I'll be doing for December's ultra. As you know, every week I combine running with gym sessions. 

One reason I like exercise science so much is because although there are a lot of details and a lot to potentially know, actually implementing a sensible plan of exercise that works is fairly simple. Behind the simplicity is a lot of research, but the plan itself is simple:

  • Run consistently.
  • Visit the gym 3-4 days a week.
  • Hit every major muscle group during the week.
  • Work out for no more than 3-5 hours per week at the gym.
  • Stick to basic movements.
  • Get enough protein in your diet.
  • Make sure you get at least 8 hours of sleep every night.
  • Focus on quality form, proper nutrition for recovery, and resting between workouts.

Apologies for my stumbling explanation. 

Nap time!
