Greatness is practiced, it doesn’t just emerge spontaneously.
In his book ‘The Talent Code’ Daniel Coyle talks about how excellence is built through excellent repetition, and excellent repetition is built through excellent practice habits. In human physiology, SAID is an acronym. It stands for Specific Adaptation to Imposed Demand. It basically means that you get better at what you practice.
Now the reason that this is so important is that we see tons of people coming into the health and fitness world with really no idea what they want to be good at. Or with a very clear idea of what they want to be good at thinking that they need to do a lot of other things that other people are doing in order to get good at this one skill.
If you work out, look at your recent sessions and ask yourself if you are making yourself better at things that matter to you. Simple question. Is your practice taking you in the direction that you want it to go?
Now that doesn’t mean that if you’re a football player, you only have to play football. You may need to do other accessory things. What you should understand is that there’s a high degree of specificity in the human nervous system. That whenever you’re training just generally you’re probably going to get general results.
From what we just explained wouldn’t it make sense to consider training the vision and the inner ear for better balance? Do those elements really have applications? Think about… walking for instance. How far can you walk without an adequate balance?
And how can you prevent injuries without a vision that gives you an accurate perception of the environment? If you are looking for a workout that doesn’t only work your body, but also the other pillars of fitness such as vision and balance, check our website for a first session.
