Transformation Alert: from skinny fat and zero muscle definition to skinnier fatter and less muscle definition (video here: https://www.instagram.com/p/B5sfYa7jKq3/). That’s right. In only a year, this underweight woman with osteoporosis and sarcopenia so bad her eyes are sunken in was able to transform her amorphous blob of an indistinguishable back-shoulder-arm (no really, I can’t tell where one begins or ends) into a lighter less-toned person who throws away hours on steady state cardio. Slave for wiry skinniness and calorie burn.
👍🏾 solid message, Peloton.
PICK UP A DUMBBELL. The average American loses 1-2lbs of lean tissue per year and replaces it with fat tissue. Burning off more muscle and bone density with a single plane activity of repetitive cardio monotony isn’t the answer. And it sure as hell ain’t fitness.
In the case of this lady, she needs to gain about 20lbs of bone, tendon, ligament, connective and muscle tissue to be healthy, let alone fit. In a standard fitness battery, she (like most cardio queens) will get crushed.
Become athletic. Gain agility. Practice balance and speed. Have the capability to move sideways and rotationally. Become strong. Be dynamic. Train to safely and easily pick up heavy things and place them overhead. Do A push-up, A pull-up, A sit-up, A lunge, A single deadlift for crying out loud. I think they call that basic physical function.
Or... “transform your life” by the same. exact. repetitive. motion. over. and. over. and. over. and...
