I always tell my clients and athletes that you are essentially two humans a right side and a left side and we have to make them get along. The human body is not symmetrical not even close actually, we are designed in a way in which the right side of our body will always win. We weren’t designed to be perfect but rather imperfect. If you take a deep look into our visual, circulatory, respiratory, neurological and muscular systems they are all different when compared with one side to the other. When we take a look at the brain the left side has more responsibilities for speech/language, how we communicate, grow and develop.
I wanted to put together a race report from my recent Ironman that I did hoping that it provides some value to those who are thinking of doing this race in the future. It may also prove useful to people doing another Ironman race, since many of the same principles and lessons apply to any race.
The most misunderstood topic in the fitness industry is always the core. We see these fancy charts and pretty pictures in the anatomy books highlighting certain areas of the stomach and everything looks symmetrical and perfect. Unfortunately we are far from symmetrical and we operate far from perfect especially when it comes to your core function.
When someone gets motivated to improve their eating habits, lose weight or get healthy it always involves the same course of action. They buy a diet book, start counting calories, download a diet app and start an exercise program. Now some of this can be useful for short term success, but if you’re looking for long term success you need to establish a foundation of respect for food.
