What Is Adaptive Fitness Training?

Sticky note for the peak register at Mount Parnassus, CO. A favorite photo because someone dedicates the summit hike “to Kristen who has never hiked above tree line.”

Soon it will be time to release the title, cover, and the book on adaptive training principles and dimensions.

Once the book is released, please feel free to share the book with your friends, family, and anyone you believe may benefit.

Adaptive training principles and dimensions can help anyone create their own best foundations and pathways to new levels of training consistency and fitness.

Midsection

When your day has been one service item to the next, responding to life’s priorities, obligations, deadlines and more, you can get home and feel like you need your last rites. Training feels like an impossibility.

Or suppose your muscles are sorer and stiffer than you remember 2 or 3 days out from a workout, and you don’t want to take another recovery day, but it seems all that you can muster.

Try a short interval of midsection and core work before dropping off to sleep. Put in 10 minutes, go slow and as continuous as you can, and see if you can relax extremities while working the trunk.

As warmth builds in the midsection, see if you can gently and gradually increase range of motion in the hips and back, and push circulation to the sore muscles that are dogging you, and to renew your tired body. Breathe continuously as you work with the basic leg lifts, bicycles, crunches, knee raises and the like.

Ten minutes later, you can come to a rest, breathe on, and go to bed.

There. You trained. It’s a success.
