Springing into Action Week 11
Saturday, May 04, 2013
This weeks challenge was the Personality Test.
The Color I have is True Blue.
I was very impressed at how true alot of the stuff show below is really me. It also indicated for the types of workouts that Blues are motived by are Running, walking, yoga and interval training.
Blues are guided by clear fitness goals and objectives. Often these goals are based on advice from health and medical professionals or information from the media, or perhaps center on improving performance in sports or other activities. Blues prefer keeping their exercise plans plain, simple, and easy to execute so they can achieve their goals. Keeping commitments to themselves ranks high with Blues.
Blues are highly sensitized and aware of their bodies and thus are careful not to over-do. They gravitate to traditional exercise based on proven methods, tested and trusted, the better to achieve their goals with a minimum of fuss or risk of injury. Because they are exercising for a purpose, it doesn’t make sense to spend time experimenting on new routines when they already know techniques and approaches that have worked in the past. With little inclination to live on the cutting edge, Blues are not interested in the latest weight program being touted or in getting their exercise in “fun” new ways. Blues focus on the purpose of exercise. They will have their fun some other time.
Correct form and proper technique are essential. They represent not only the best and least wasteful approach to exercise, but ensure greater safety, a high priority for Blues. When learning something new, Blues prefer a step-by-step approach. For instance, in learning a free weight routine, Blues prefer to learn the proper technique for developing one muscle group to their satisfaction before moving on to the next. Once a technique is locked into their memory, they can comfortably move on, but not until then. With an emphasis on safety and form, Blues value a chance to learn from qualified experts who, as professionals, can carefully take them through the steps.
Blues are motivated by keeping track of their workouts. What better way to measure progress and see that they accomplished what they set out to do than by writing it down and seeing the data in front of them. Record-keeping allows Blues to refer to their progress in the orderly manner that resonates with their True Blue nature. Date, time, distance, sets, reps, results—all details are noted.
For the Bonus this week I focused on interval training and I also did a lot of walking since the weather was beautiful outside this week.
