Organ-fitness or muscle-fitness exercise? What carries more weight literally and figuratively? Although fitness assessments typically put more weight on muscle fitness and diet, does adding a non-traditional deep visceral warm-up take the weight off, faster (than simply working the large long muscles or eating less)? That’s the question (one of them anyway) savvy personal trainers are asking (Obesity has been estimated to be epidemic)).
Fitness assessments that focus primarily on benefits of muscle strength, flexibility and endurance only see half the picture, don’t they – we can have a well-developed musculature and still not be at our performance peak, physically or mentally. The big picture depends on health, and health ultimately depends on deep organ function.
- Exercise health fitness assessment gap includes: Measurement of adaptation acidification with traditional muscle-fitness exercise workouts. Measurement of deep organ function with a non-traditional exercise warm-up cool down that returns body pH to normal alkalinity in minutes… more
- Fitness assessment measurement of cardio efficiency from engaging the large long limb muscles during traditional muscle-fitness cardio. Measurement of cardio efficiency resulting from rapid opening up of circulation in the heart, liver, gall bladder, pancreas, stomach, intestinal tract and brain during a non-traditional exercise warm-up… more
- Fitness assessment measurement of effects from cerebral circulatory changes with drop in carbon dioxide/ oxygen ratio with traditional muscle-fitness exercise. Measurement of cerebral function when the carbon dioxide/ oxygen ratio stays normal as heart rate peaks during a non-traditional organ-fitness warm-up… more
- Fitness assessment measurement of muscle balance over several days or weeks under conditions of body pH acidity with traditional workouts. Measurement of dexterity and resilience to stress when total body V02max is balanced in minutes under conditions of normal pH alkalinity with a non-traditional warm-up… more
- Fitness assessment measurement of changes in organ function from dehydration in the viscera when circulation shuts down in deep tissues during sports and traditional muscle-fitness workouts. Measurement of speed of muscle adaptation and recovery from sustaining normal hydration with an organ-fitness warm-up cool down… more
- Immune system function needs to be monitored for overtraining syndrome in a traditional muscle-fitness assessment. Immune system function is monitored for speed of overtraining recovery when an organ-fitness exercise warm-up is added to training protocols… more
- Fitness assessment for sympathetic dominance from over-stimulation of adrenaline with a muscle-fitness workout that focuses on speed, resistance, and frequency of muscle contraction. Assessment of neural response to physiological balance of sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems with a non-traditional organ-fitness warm-up… more
- Fitness assessment measurement of endocrine and hormone imbalances that can indicate overtraining with traditional muscle-fitness exercise workouts. Measurement of hormone balance when endocrine centres corresponding to the five major organ groups are stimulated successively in minutes with a non-traditional exercise warm-up… more
- Fitness assessment measurement of calorie-burn when only muscle tissue becomes metabolically active, as during traditional muscle-fitness exercise. Measurement of calorie-burn when deep organs as well as muscle tissue are metabolically activated with oxygen during a non-traditional warm-up… more
- Fitness assessment measurement of metabolic, neural, and kinaesthetic effects of muscle-fitness exercise when performed first thing in the morning after waking up. Measurement of same effects when an organ-fitness warm-up is performed first thing in the morning… more
- Fitness assessment measurement of aging speed when muscle metabolism peaks under conditions of acidification with traditional muscle-fitness workouts. Measurement of rejuvenation speed when metabolism peaks under conditions of acid-base equilibrium with a non-traditional organ-fitness warm-up… more
This is only a partial list – from the perspective of heart patients to professional athletes, assessments for pH exercise health fitness still need development. There’s lots of room to increase client motivation with personal trainers’ health fitness assessments as to what gets More Out of Exercise™.
