What are the fitness parameters
Check out this Reebok zigtech’s advertisement.
Did you check out the female model? Gossh! how briskly and with what stability she does her squats, snatches, box jumps. Respect! Isn’t she really hot? She is the product of Crossfit training :PSo we have all reasons to believe that all her fitness parameters are taken care of. Following are the five major parameters that we should improvise on to increase our level of fitness:.. btw, to me this model gives a huge kick to go and train
Cardio respiratory fitness: It is the ability of the heart and lungs to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the working cells or muscles which are demanding them. How soon do you get tired shopping? Improve your cardio respiratory fitness and shop more.
Muscular strength: The greatest amount of force that a muscle or a group of muscle can exert at one point of time. How many shopping bags can you lift at one point of time? Build muscular strength to lift more.
Muscular endurance: it is the ability of a muscle or a group of muscle to perform a repeated activity over a period of time. Ever played badminton/lawn tennis/TT etc for prolonged hours? Or left the game, fatigued after a small time? Build your endurance and persist more.
Flexibility: it is the ability of the joints to move through their full range of motion (ROM). Ever observed what makes our best bowler throw that smoking spinner? Get flexible and turn, bend and flex more.
And the 5th, the most sought after parameter:
Body Composition: This refers to the fat mass we carry as compared to our total body mass. Those of us, who want to look toned should target reducing their fat mass and increasing their lean mass(bone and muscles). This increase in lean mass is a consequence of improvements in the first four fitness parameters :). Improve your body composition to burn more.
After having said all this, I want to end this article with, “It is your body, get up ! challenge it, sweat it and discover it”
Cheers to good workout!
