When to Sweat & Build Strength

the secret to getting results isn’t just doing more of the same

If you were to believe everything you read these days about training your body, you could understandably start to think that getting the results you want comes down to just one thing: hard work.

You might think that if you’re not improving, you’re just not trying hard enough. There’s certainly a lot of literature out there to convince you of that. But what if you’re consistently sweating hard and your body still isn’t responding the way you want it to?

It’s time to assess what your body really needs.

That’s where the Body Analysis comes in. 

Every time you complete the Body Analysis, you help movr build a picture of where you’re at and what you need to get moving your best. Everyone is different, and the way you score on the movement tests can be surprising – it doesn’t necessarily tie in to your perceived fitness level.

  • For example, someone who practices yoga every day can bend in all the ways we think are great. As a result, they might ace tests for mobility… but find themselves really challenged with core stability tests. Their lower back and abdomen (areas functionally built to be stable) require more strength and stability to balance out their supercharged yogi mobility. 

 

  • On the other hand, someone who hits the gym to do chest and ab exercises after sitting at a desk all day needs a different approach. Before focusing on strength, they actually need to work on mobility. Opening up the shoulders and hips will improve how they feel generally, in addition to preparing their body to effectively build strength later on.

The Body Analysis identifies these specific needs and movr prescribes Minis to help meet them. Which means you don’t need to wonder why your body isn’t responding the way you want it to. You can find out for yourself, and make moves to set it straight. 

As you learn more about all the ways your body is connected, you’ll see that there is always a way to train your body intelligently.

Pushing yourself without the proper foundation can lead to aches, discomfort or even injury. Getting sweaty and building strength has a place, but only when you know you’ve got the mobility and stability to support it.
