Here is the scenario.
I wake up log unto How2BHurt.com and get the workout of the day.
Mind you this is the same workout if you are 17 or 70, male or female, an endurance athlete or a speed/power athlete. I am amazed at the number of people that do this. Stop and think for a minute, what is wrong with this picture? Logic and best practice tells us that one size does not fit all., then when would anyone do this? That is not even taking into account the actual workouts on some of these sites. This is not training. Training must have clear progression in incremental steps toward measurable goals. If you are a coach or an individual following this madness take a long hard look at why you are doing what you are doing and when? I maintain training is a mindful process that should incorporate variability and variety with a purpose. Canned programs that assume that one size fits are a misfit. Evaluate these programs using good training principles and see if they stand up. Don’t get caught up in the hype, find a program that fits you and your specific needs. Just because it is hard is hard does not mean it is training. Frankly it is easy to design a program to bury someone, that is not training, it is abuse.
