There are many ways to exercise; but, how do you know which way is the right way? What is the right thing to eat? When is the best time to eat or workout? What is the best exercise for my goals? Is that exercise safe? If you have asked yourself any of these questions, you have probably received a lot of conflicting answers … conflicting answers from researchers, the media, fitness experts, coaches, the government, family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors.
There are several reasons for the conflicts. One reason is that there are many ways to do the right thing for yourself. That’s the good news. But there are ways that you can harm yourself with the wrong exercise, too much intensity or the wrong food as fuels for recovery and adaptation. What works for some individuals may not work for others. Individuals have specific body types, development stages and metabolisms that can require extra personal attention and discovery. Furthermore, training and nutritional practices that may be good for short term sports performance and gains might not be optimal for long term health and wellness. The best way to stay with the right exercise and behaviors and to discover what is good for you is to learn the exercise-related sciences, such as exercise physiology, biomechanics, epidemiology, nutrition, psychology, and ergonomics to carefully learn about yourself in the framework of exercise science.
