How do you define fitness training? This is a question worth asking yourself as it is almost certainly limiting the total volume (and the quality) of your training. Most people view training as either working out or specific sports training. That’s it, there isn’t much to it. And I get it, we’re encouraged to view […]
Training or working out is generally seen as an activity that should be done in a gym, at an outdoor fitness station or class, or at home. And it should be done with the appropriate fitness equipment, otherwise it’s not “real” training. In other words, it should be done in an “appropriate” location with the “appropriate” equipment to have real results. This approach not only limits you drastically in your training opportunities, it’s also less efficient in getting you the results you are looking for.
Most people have training goals in the form of: achieve my first pull-up or reach 10 reps of perfect form pull-ups achieve my first muscle or reach 3 reps in a row etc… The problem with this approach is that it automatically limits your training volume because you try to get training time that will […]
Time is most probably your limiting factor, not will or capacity to learn, so multitask and seize all the moments you can to train and develop your strength or mobility. Use Opportunistic Training to train efficiently, even in 10 mins, wherever you are: hotel room while traveling, playground watching over the kids, waiting for your […]

When we say that our bodies are naturally adapted to certain types of movements, the flip-side is that they require these types of movement to stay healthy. That’s because they indeed evolved over millions of years in the context of these movements, and some physiological […]
The best way to fail is to try and change everything at once. Rather, change one small habit at a time, consolidate, then add another one. Use cues that exist in your daily life to remind you of the need to exercise. Build the habit of balancing on 1 leg when brushing your teeth for […]
This is the extract of the post so that we know a little bit how to strycture things out here in that post.
Our bodies have evolved in an energy-scarce environment and our instinct and physiology are geared towards conserving as much energy as possible, which make us expend the least amount of effort each time we do a physical task. That was adapted to our biological needs when we had to do a lot of physical activity […]
One of the most limiting beliefs for most people is that they need to do a 1h workout session to get significant fitness results, and of course 1h of dedicated time to fitness training is very difficult to find, so most end up doing nothing. But if you seize all the opportunities to get some […]
