#10 – The Big Picture Coach D and Trent bring the Foundations series of episodes full circle with a discussion of the Big Picture of training. Put simply, the “big picture” is to think about training in a logical, systematic way. Too often people eat up whatever the latest magazine or Instagram fitness guru says without thinking critically about how progress is made. Or they hop from program to program with little regard to the amount of stress they are imposing on their bodies. In all of these instances, a training model and a framework for thinking could have helped these people from falling prey to poor fitness advice. The Foundations series was designed to give you a very basic framework for thinking about fitness. We laid out the various physical adaptations or attributes one can cultivate, and a model for driving those adaptations – the Stress, Recovery, Adaptation model. From there we applied the SRA model to strength – the basis of all physical skills – as well conditioning, mobility, and more. In each episode, we tried to build a case for how and when to apply stress to your body, in order to gain these physical attributes. We discussed recovery – the R in SRA – in terms of nutrition and supplements as well as the hormones that control metabolic processes in the body. Paying attention to these factors ensures that your body can recover from the stress you’re imposing on it, so that your hard work doesn’t go to waste. In the future we will expand on all of these things, and apply them to specific athletes, sports, and discuss the way programming varies at different phases of an athlete’s training advancement.
