What makes for an effective workout? Is the fitness tracker your wrist? How about the routine you follow? Or maybe it’s the equipment you use or the pre-workout you take beforehand.
There are a lot of products and services out there promising to make your workouts more effective, but the truth is, many of these things are what truly make your workout effective. Not that the clothing you wear or the foods you eat are not important, they are, but the true source of an effective workout doesn’t come from a good or service you can purchase.
Instead, the true source of an effective workout depends on the very thing that causes the workout to happen in the first place. I’m talking about what I like to call your neural code.
Your neural code is the subject of my latest book, Smart Bodyweight Training which I wrote to improve the quality of every exercise and workout you do for the rest of your life.
Simply put, an effective workout comes from what you do with your muscles. Every type of physical change you want is the result of how you use your muscles to perform physical activity. I know that may sound a little simplistic, but our fitness culture has a lot of messages floating around saying that your workouts are effective because you use the products and services. It’s easy to become distracted and forget that any, and all, forms of training are effective because of what you physically do rather than what you buy or use.
In this week’s podcast, I share 4 big lessons about your neural code which is the source of every physical action you take. Your neural code is the cause of every effective workout you do and the more you understand it, the more you gain from your training.
