Great article. This gives me a lot of food for thought. I definitely do more interval training than anything else. Now I know I need to switch up a few things. Thanks again.

@Sandy - Thanks for the kind words!

@Neeraj - Different strokes for different folks. Almost everyone I work with and train would prefer the look of a team sport athlete (soccer, basketball, football) over that of a bodybuilder. Just my .02.

Very Inspirational article! Thanks for taking the time to write it and explain the need to undulate in order to add variety and see results in times of doubt. As a personal Trainer I too believe there is an athlete in everyone and whether or not we will ever progress to gold medal status we can achieve an " athlethtic state of mind and the drive and determination to be the best we can be!

Sorry this has got to be one of them worst articles I have ever read on this site. Please the dictionary does a pretty good job of defining who an athlete is.Yes some people want to look like someone who participates in shot put for example Athlete , Olympic Lifters Athlete, 10000m runner Athlete,over a bodybuilder or supermodel , I am sure you get the picture.Yes I am sure lots of women pushing a stroller can become more efficient at that. People are individuals in the game of life not Athletes.
