A New Way of Thinking About Exercise
The purpose of strength training is to safely, effectively, and efficiently apply the exercise stimulus. The body then produces the desired results in direct proportion to the quality of that stimulus, as you read about in our article on How Exercise Works.
The Adaptive Triangle™ is a handy model we created to help people understand this exercise stimulus. Using the Adaptive Triangle™, you can determine how to intelligently adjust your workout.
Seeing is Believing
We think in pictures. When I ask you to think about your car, your refrigerator, or your home, the first thing your brain does is produce an image in your mind.
So when we think about the exercise stimulus, we can intellectually know what the primary factors are. But we can only think about these factors once we have a visual image with which to work.
