Good, solid, time-tested exercises and workouts do not become obsolete. What worked for Jack LaLanne in 1950, will still work for you today and for those still here in 2050.
The United States Military knows this better than anyone. Which is why they have stuck with essentially the same exercise and physical fitness programs for more than a hundred years. They are also a great example of how solid research identifies how to tweak these programs incrementally over time so that in aggregate they become stronger and stronger, much like their participants 🙂
Every new program you think you discover, or secret solution that suddenly manifests in front of you, is only a slight modification of those good, solid, time-tested, research- driven exercises and workouts that have been here all along. I could teach them to you in a few hours and that's what my 4-session Kick-start program has always been about.
The problem is that this old school idea is not sexy like the new place on the corner touting some special blend of fitness that is somehow different than all others that came before it. Fools gold. A seductive deception presented as some credible and substantial and newly discovered scientific solution and break-through.
To be fair, in the pursuit of your peak health and fitness, many of these programs are valuable tools. The problem is in placing too much credibility on one or the other as the solution that trumps all others. Placing too much emphasis on the idea that there exists a panacea.
Inside The Ash Flash today, I have left for you one article and video from the archives that is proof of this reality. Proof that so many can so easily be fooled by a good story that taps ready emotions. A story, that when analyzed carefully, holds very little substance, and at the same time an allure that can fool YOU and many others into believing that this must be the way to your health, fitness and weight loss goals.
