Muscles 


– often first thought is that they just contract and relax, go hard or soft, 💪🏼 or weak. If you can flip your perspective for just a ⏱, a way to frame their function is that they are providers of 🔋 and shock absorbers for anti-gravitation.

So instead of benchmarking yourself just by measures strength, power, endurance etc, a more interesting way is to think about energy cost required for a given activity and energy as a 💲. Your health and overall wellbeing is a determinant of how much energy you can 💸

.

Factors such as aging, stress, overtraining, undertraining, tight muscles, weak muscles, lack of oxygen, posture etc will influence your reserves. Similar to 💰, the less you have, the less you can technically buy. So let’s forget perfect form, perfect movement, tight muscles, weak muscles and pain for a second

.

Let’s talk more about how you decide to 💳 your limited energy to pick activities. For a simplified example, if you have poor grip ✋🏼, the amount of activities you have available at your disposal are relatively limited than someone who’s got good grip strength – hence, it will be easy for one person to carry groceries versus another person to carry groceries

.

Someone will have 1️⃣0️⃣0️⃣ units of energy to use and another will have 1️⃣0️⃣0️⃣0️⃣. Since the weight, bag shape, awkward contents of the 🍏 is constant, it means that it’s safe to say the energy cost to carry them is 50 units

.

One individual is going to have to go home and take an ❄️ bath after while the other is going to the gym after to 🏋🏾, ⛹ and 🏌 and then after, go do 3 hours of 💻 and then hang out with 👪 .

People who are relatively stronger tend to have more energy and tend to have more abilities to adapt compared to their relatively weaker counterparts , and the reason being is they’ve been able to bank a tonne of energy reserve, they rarely spend their energy into a deficit 📉 and they are constantly doing health-promoting activities to get more energy 📈

.

So forget muscles and aesthetics or how much you squat for now, but ask yourself how do you think your life would feel if you had an extra 25% more 🔋… Or what about UNLIMITED ENERGY??!?
