A Brief Introduction to Underground Strength Training
This is, most certainly, by far one of the hottest topics of fitness training today. It combines the benefits of the social phenomenon of subcultures with fitness training to produce a synergy which leads the individual to better results.
Peoplelike subcultures because they give them a cause to believe in, and provide them with a feeling of approval that is caused by the fact that there is “safety in numbers”. The unifying factor of a particular subculture may be anything from politics to the arts or even religion. However, despite the many varieties of factors which may work as the gravitation point of a particular group of the sort, they do all have a thing in common, after all. And that is the groups tend to be rather... tight, as the fact that there is a passionate belief in their causes by each and every member.
With that said, it is unclear of why some people “go underground” in order to engage in strength training, since it is, in fact, an issue so mundane and commonplace that any reason provided may prove only even more baffling than the very fact that these groups actually exist.
A Few Hints at Some Reasons to Going Underground
Notalways, but still sometimes, certain subcultures tend to have radical views. One of the reasons people may engage in strength training with a hint of secrecy to it, is because it is, by some, considered a radical thing itself – no matter how common a health issue it actually may be. Another reason would be that there is a considerable amount of people who tend to push the envelope while doing so, by working with weights several hours on a daily basis.
This is because, in the eyes of the average joe-six-pack, such an effort is beyond any reasonable expectations. What he may really want for himself would be is to improve the maximum muscle capacity which is only to lead to a good physical condition, enhance his or her strength endurance and muscle flexibility as well as balance coordination. That is to say, bulging is in no way on their wishlists.
Whileon the other hand, a person prone to joining underground groups is looking for a different, and more intense kind of training. He or she will most certainly be someone from one of the following demographics: professional athletes, professional bodybuilders, weight lifters whose daily job descriptions already involve lifting heavy loads and lastly people who are looking for a greater challenge out of personal self-satisfaction.
The Underground Strength Training Itself
Itis very important to note that even a person wanting to go underground should start from the basics – and in no way go extreme from the very beginning.
Thereare certainly competent enough trainers at each and every underground gym which may provide the advice needed according to each and particular person's current condition, but there are some general guidelines as well. One of which is to, while starting out, go with the largest muscle groups first and work onward from there.
