Good Monday morning to you all, last full week on January, how's everyone feeling about it? It's been a doozie of a year so far for some, I'm sure. OK, today's subject, when it comes to fitness, and really life in general, there are so many numbered measurements to put to use and tell us how we are doing, relatively. They do come in handy and are a good tools to help you form an idea of which direction you are trending, but sometimes we obsess just a tiny bit too much about numbers. Even in the business world, if all you obsess about is the numbers (profit, income, etc…) you miss the forest for the trees and risk losing your way.
In fitness there’s a ton of figures that you can draw on to measure your progress, weight, body fat, clothing sizes, BMI, calories, weight on the bar or in your hand, time it takes to do a mile and…you get the point.
