Everyone knows that physical fitness is crucial. It is the bedrock that supports the other activities of the body and the mind. But it’s often necessary to change things up a little. It’s too easy to slip into a rut, to fall into a trap of feeling that we’re well-rounded, when we may not be.
And that’s something I see a lot of.
I see a lot of guys focusing too much on one thing, to the detriment of the big picture. I’m seeing too much focus on weightlifting, and not enough focus on all-around fitness.
Remember that it’s all-around fitness that matters.
Don’t get me wrong. I love weightlifting and firmly believe that it should be one of your foundations. But other things matter, too. And it’s easy to slip into the self-delusion that you’re in shape just because your biceps or pecs look good with a tight t-shirt on. Some of these guys are laughable.
