Working Out For Funzies

A couple of days ago I was watching a Dr Oz interview, he
mentioned somewhere in the interview that skinny people do healthy things
without even knowing they do them. He said these things like eating about 30
grams of protein first thing in the morning when they wake up, helps them to
stay skinny.
Well my blog is not about staying skinny, it is about
building muscle, lean muscle but I saw how what Dr Oz said could fit into the
muscle building niche. You see lots of fit people are fit not because they diet
but because everything they do contribute to their continued growth.
Naturally fit people are fit not because they are born that
way but because they have active lifestyles that make it difficult for them to
gain fat, on top of that they workout and therefore acquire lean ripped
physiques which are highly functional, an example of a person like this is Greg
Plitt (he has always been an outdoorsy person, a sporty guy, and into working
out and has a unorthodox diet which would probably work for someone else).
enjoy your workout like the joker enjoys being a villain
When I speak of active people I am talking about physically
active people not people who are always busy doing work that does not involve
physical exertion. In our approach to staying fit, we could learn a lot about
staying fit and active by looking back at the activities we did when we were
little kids (if the only activities you did were to play video games and toys
in your playroom than I am not talking to you about that rather about the other
stuff you should have been doing). You see what Dr Oz saw as habits that skinny
people do that keep them skinny are much like things that active people do that
keep them fit, and these are the habits that were formed in childhood.
These active habits might be the love of sports, not watching
sport but playing sports. Doing out-door activities like hiking, mountain
biking or even swimming and hunting. As an active kid you might have liked
fighting/wrestling with friends, playing cops and robbers chasing each other
around, playing jump rope, been involved in break dancing crews.
As kids we were active playing around all day which meant we
burnt a lot of calories, the kids who did not play around all day and ate and
played video games were mostly overweight and obese and were not very athletic.
The parents are responsible mostly for getting their kids into the habit of
being outdoorsy people or to stuff them with toys and gaming consoles and
create the lazy inactive obese kids.
The point I am trying to make is sometimes being fit and
healthy means going back to basics and enjoying yourself and just being active,
whether its cycling around your neighbourhood, going hiking, training for a
marathon, going to the park playing catch with your dog, that beats sitting
around surfing the net all day or watching TV all day and stuffing your face
full of junk food.
Go out there and have fun doing things that force you to
move, if you are looking to get healthier it’s a step in the right direction,
if you are overweight you could shed a couple pounds, if you are into
weightlifting it could be that extra bit of activity that help you stay lean
all year round. The best way to get fit is by doing activities that you love
without anyone pushing you to do them. Most workout programs fail; most diets
flop because you give up because you did not have the right motivation. Your
push needs to be self motivated, internally driven and not from external
