There are definitely some things to consider before increasing your fitness routine. After all, you want to get in shape, not get hurt.
People often make the mistake of moving too quickly with their workout routines. If this is you, don’t be surprised that you have not seen any results. There are three levels of exercise: stabilization, strength, and power. You cannot achieve the results you are looking for without going through each level and sub level. Let’s begin with stabilization as it’s the most important because without it, you will never be able to achieve the other two levels. Here are the things to consider before increasing your fitness routine.
One of the most important things to consider before increasing your fitness routine is building stabilization and muscular endurance while also developing coordination. Here’s an example. See if you can hold a pushup position for 30 to 60 seconds WITHOUT moving. Now, do that same exercise on a stability ball. If you can hold that position on a big round ball without any issues, then your neuromuscular efficiency is developing well, but you’re still not at the strength and power levels yet. This can take months to achieve, so take your time because if you don’t and move too quickly you can get hurt.
