For today’s article, I have quite an interesting subject and topic of discussion. I will talk a little bit about the way humans (the human body) has been created to live, and kind of the lifestyle we follow today (you kind of get the direction of this article, right?)
Many many years ago, when God created us, even if you think about the jobs that existed back then, it was all focused on manual work. Nothing computerized, no indoor work situations and desks. It would basically be a lot of work under the harsh weather or the sun. But as centuries went by, more and more people were trying to improve their life conditions and their overall situation (and quality of life) leading up to what we know today as the office job.
That is probably how the gymnasium boom took place: people understood that they are nowadays inside offices, sitting on a chair or couch for very long hours and not getting enough movement. Remember our motto? Keep moving!
So what basically happened, was we stopped moving and with that we got the extra calories, the extra join problems and overall health issues. Our bodies were not designed in such a way, and even if you look at it from a bio-mechanical stand point, it is modified and structured in a way for manual work. Basically in a similar way that animals have been structured. It’s created to hunt and all that good stuff.
I was reading the other day about a worker of a commercial demolition company out in Georgia saying how his job allows him to not go to the gym. Even when you think about construction, it still is much different than thousands of years ago. Because back then, all the boulder had to be lifted manually by human manpower. Today you pretty much got cranes, bulldozers and all that fun stuff. So it still isn’t as tough as it was years ago. But according to that worker’s interview, they still very much lift heavy weights and even operating these pieces of heavy equipment, takes a lot of manual work. Even considering the walks on the deconstruction site, that by its own can be a very good daily workout.
