Why is it pushed aside, true story? In a superficial way, the "your legs go under the table"story, or they are not out there, or I cannot find the pants that fit. No one will dig deeper into the essence of the problem.
Let's move on with the smashing of global – fitness – thinking. Why is something natural labeled as healthy? What has come from the nature can't be bad but no one thinks about whether the nature has given us those things so we could just eat them.
You have probably heard the advice "eat everything and eat as much as possible" for a thousand times, which probably didn't bring you anything good because the scale didn't change and there weren't any muscles. The advice is somewhat correct, it only requires a different schedule.
How many times have you got the answer “ Do it more often “ to a “ How to fix it “ question? So, why not do it daily and fix everything then? There is some truth in that but with a different approach. I don't like goals and limitations, I prefer driving to destination but, since I'm outnumbered, we'll set the date, a target at 9 weeks.
Looking at a well-known reading material, an amateur comes to a conclusion that you can build up your chest using a 2-200kg dumbbell and the whole story gets more interesting by watching professionals doing some amazing stuff in order to get attention and sell an 8 week long training.
Even though it sounds great, it's nothing more than periodization. If you used to do team sports you had probably come across this term; after a certain hard training period, there's a time to relax. Doesn't ring a bell? Didn't think so.
