The Importance of Cross-Training

In my eBook, “Age Re-Defined”, I write that “not all exercise is created

equal” and that my own exercise philosophy involves cross-training and

addressing the whole body, plus cardio, and as many as possible of the

eight components of fitness that are listed in the book. No one method of

exercise is likely to achieve this. Hence, the desirability of cross-training,

of introducing new elements into your exercise regimen.

Recently, I enjoyed some work with a heavy bag as an added element to

a session which included push-ups, burpees, agility drills, and more.

That session reminded me of what I had written about cross-training.

My other training methods include plyometrics, stairs, weights, and treadmills.
