    My workout is better than yours!

    Shop Now
    Rant time. I read a lot of different publications and forums about fitness and I'm tiring of the running vs. power lifting vs. Crossfit vs. yoga vs. shooting people in the ass with a dart gun arguments.

    My workout is better than your workout FOR ME. Your workout is probably better than mine FOR YOU. We're all moving, so as long as we're staying out of each other's way, why do we gotta bag on the way everyone else is moving?

    I'd rather shave my head with a cheese grater than do Zumba, but you seem to like it and your not using the incline bench means I get to. You may be horrified by my big delts, but I'm not crowding up your Zumba room so it's all good.

    So long as someone has put some thought into their goals and chosen the right activity to meet them, I don't see why we have to argue about what exercise is best. And even if they haven't, it's no skin off my nose so long as they let me work in when I ask.

    OK, I'm done.

    It's incredible, actually & funny at the same time when you look at those comparisons.
    On the other hand - there's EFFICIENT workouts and less efficient / time-consuming ones with same benefits
    Yet that's another story
    "...Primal or not primal - that is the question!"

    Nice rant Violette_R!

    Most people that calls themselves primal does not really like physical activities at all, but they shop them as a necessary evil in trying to get a less fat figure! Bacon and bulletproof for breakfast and Zumba and pillates in the afternoon to get absolution for their sins of perpetual gorgin seem to be the perfect combo...

    If you are really primal, you find energy, that has to go somewhere and thats where exercise comes in handy and naturally. But you get many people who tell they are primal and keep eating their ice creams, refined sugar, etc, and then complain that primal doesn't work.

    I love being active. My long walks outdoors keep me sane and an intense strength training workout makes me feel good about myself. If my marathoner friend gets the same out of running marathons, who am I to tell her about the evils of chronic cardio?

    Lol at the Zumba! I loathe flirty girl fitness even more though!

    My workout is chasing a toddler around the house. I can also carry his 25 lbs body for up to 5 hrs because he hates strollers.
    That is why I look down on all the weak stroller pushing mommies...

    Jk

    Yoga is not bad, but for fun I like Volleyball.

    I'm loathe to criticize anyones fitness choices given the number of couch potatoes out there. Anything beats inactivity. LOL, even Sweating to the Oldies. I like pretty much all exercise, but I get tired of the same thing too much. The only constant is riding horses, but that is pretty easy at this point in my life.

    I want big delts.... I think after my crossfit membership expires I'll look into a gym membership and heavy weights.

    I don't really care what anyone does as long as they are not doing stupid crap in my power rack at the gym!
