When it comes to fitness, you need to think like an athlete, according the findings of a new study that compares fitness regimes to those of a pro athlete.
In the study published Thursday in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, researchers looked at the effects of a variety of fitness regimes, including cycling, running, and elliptical machines.
They also examined whether certain exercises would work best in different people’s bodies, such as if a runner is doing the same amount of work that a weightlifter or weight-lifting coach.
“We think the best way to understand your fitness regime is to get to know your body,” said study co-author Dr. Mark Bresnahan, an associate professor at the University of South Florida’s College of Medicine.
“It’s really important to understand the different types of exercise that can work in your body.
And it’s also important to be aware of the different physical functions of different muscles.”
For example, in a powerlifting workout, the runner may have a bigger muscle mass, while the weightlifts have a smaller one.
The study also looked at whether certain exercise regimes were effective at different levels of fitness.
The researchers used a number of different workouts to look at how well different types worked, such how many repetitions, how long they lasted, and how many different exercises were performed in each workout.
The workouts included a range of different exercises such as weight lifting, cardio, and yoga.
For example: Runners trained in the powerlifting style of workout have a higher muscle mass than powerlifters, but have a lower number of repetitions.
In a cardio workout, runners have a much lower muscle mass and do fewer repetitions per set than powerlifts, but they have a greater number of sets per exercise.
The exercise is designed to keep your muscles in optimal shape and allow you to work out longer, said Dr. Bresnaan, who is a professor of exercise and training sciences at Florida Atlantic University.
The results showed that powerlifers have a better workout if they are using an elliptical machine, while runners use the elliptical workout for endurance training, which helps build endurance.
It is also important not to put too much weight on your muscles, which can lead to injury, he said.
The athletes in the study were mostly female, and were all between the ages of 18 and 44.
The most popular type of exercise in the fitness study was the elliptic machine workout, with about half of the participants using a elliptical and the other half using a stationary bike.
The elliptical type workout included exercises such pull-ups, dips, push-ups and leg extensions.
In addition, participants were required to perform about 50 pull-up reps and 50 dips, as well as 30 sit-ups.
“When you look at these types of workouts, they are all pretty similar,” said Drs.
Michael E. Roesel and Jeffrey P. Schmitz, of the Department of Medicine at the UF School of Medicine and the Department and Program in Exercise Science at the Florida Atlantic School of Fitness and Sport.
However, it is important to use different types in different workouts.
Powerlifters can use the same type of workout as the elliptics, while endurance athletes can use an elliptic workout but do not perform the same number of reps.
“In terms of the types of exercises, the most popular workout type is a powerlifter type, and the most commonly used exercise in that is the ellipticals,” said Bresneahan.
“If you’re not using the elliptices, you are likely doing something that is going to get in the way of your strength and fitness,” said Schmitzz.
“There are some exercises that are going to be more beneficial than others, but the important thing is that they are appropriate for different people and not just for those who have a high-end athlete-type training program,” he said, adding that it is critical to get the most out of these exercises.
“What you are trying to do with this type of work is not to get strong, but to maintain your health,” he explained.
The authors did find that those who performed the elliptically-based workout had lower rates of injury.
For instance, the runners who performed elliptical workouts had a lower rate of knee injuries, as did the exercisers who used a stationary machine.
“The exercise is probably the most effective type of aerobic training that people can do to maintain strength and health,” said Roeseel, adding he was surprised by the lower injury rate for the ellipti-based exercisers.
“This type of training is a great way to increase your strength, especially if you are at a higher level of fitness,” he added.
Exercise is the most common exercise in fitness, so the researchers also tested how much exercise was performed in different fitness regimes.
The exercisers in the elliptie type exercise had the lowest injury rate.
