Are you driven enough for your resolution?

 

Hello guys!

Are you driven enough for your resolution?

We at Functional Basics  hope that you have had a great christmas eve and New Year. We ourselves had a wonderful time with  family and friends that we don’t usually have time to meet that much, wich whas very nice!

We are a little curious! Have you heard of new years resolution? Ofcourse you have! 😀 But have you made one yourself this year? If not maybe we can help.

One thing that is clear is that many people don’t achieve their resolution.  As a matter of fact, 80% fail their resolution already in Febuary!!!  One thing is clear. They who fail don’t want it that badly.  It is known that motivation don’t cut it, motivation comes and goes. What you need is a drive, when you are driven nothing can stand in your way.

How can we at Functional Basics help you to become driven? We believe that if you know what is happening inside your body and muscles we feel a higher happyness when it comes to exercise.  when we know how we acctually shall train to truly gain results, a drive occur inside of us.

In our courses we don’t just give you a training program, we also explain what is happening in our muscle and why it is happening. This is something that we believe will rise your driving.

First of all find a fundamential why to exercise, what do you want the most?  Write it down on a paper! Then let us find a how and a what together!

Best regards

Robin and Martin

Don’t get stuck in a rut 

Get out of the rut!
Not everyone’s willing to put in the legwork to become the best that they can be. Some people simply settle for a healthy enough lifestyle, and some can’t even be bothered to do that.

Frankly, it’s each to their own, but the reality is that many of us are also feeling trapped; we struggle to take the next step, reaching out for anything that could help us go on.

Solution
You may not be able to be the best in the world, but we all have the power to be best that we can be. If you find yourself stuck in a rut and you’ve no idea how to proceed, what you must do is look within yourself. The solution to your predicament is not somewhere out there in the world, but inside you. You need to ask yourself “why?” – Why do you want to improve yourself? What drives you? If you are able to find that fundamental answer, then it’s your way out and onto the road to success.
You don’t have to rely on external factors when the necessary motivation is found within yourself – the motivation that allows you to take the pain required to reach your goals and end up where you want to be.

Start with why
That being said, finding the answer can be tricky. Let me tell you how I did it.
The knowledge base for training was poor around the parts where I lived. When I realised this, I wanted to change it. I wanted to help my fellow athletes perform better, to reach their goals.
I started out with a group of fifteen people before I launched functionalbasics.com. To me, it was remarkably fulfilling to help other people chase their dreams. The website was essentially born of a desire to help educate people. Having finished an appropriate education, I began to write about what I had learned.
I expect there are more people out there, though, who are stuck in their training because they don’t know how to proceed. People that want more and are willing to work a little harder and take that next step. That’s where I come in. This is why I do it and why I don’t get stuck.

Best you can be
I’ve always said: “Be the best that you can be.”
Say you perform a sport of some kind. As you can imagine, there are some exercises that will help you improve in that sport, and there are some that are less suited to the task. You obviously want to do the right exercises for your particular sport. Doing so will increase your performance and make you better at it.
Don’t let anything stand in your way if you want something more, something bigger.
The harsh truth is that training incorrectly could potentially decrease performance instead of increasing it. For example, a sprinter wants to build muscles that are optimal for running really fast in short bursts. However, because they don’t have all the necessary information, they are thinking exercise is exercise, as do many people. So they decide to go for a 30-minute run.
Now, as a sprinter, you need your muscles to digest carbohydrates instead of burning them with oxygen, and by running for a long time you are adapting your muscles to the latter, which is not optimal. The purpose of Functional Basics is to provide you with this knowledge.

Right training
For the sprinter, running short intervals of 30 seconds, followed by a 30-second resting period is likely a better way to exercise.
Maybe you do a sport where you aren’t consistently running in a straight line? Then you might be better off running in a zigzag pattern. The more you tailor your training to suit the sport, the better you will be at it. You want to train for optimal performance!
