The real theme behind the title of this video is the importance of having a dream or clear vision about your exercise goals. Without it, you really donโ€™t know how much exercise is enough (too much or not enough), or you donโ€™t know what types to do.

Mimicking what other people are doing may not be ideal for achieving your dream or chief objective for exercise.

In my video, Iโ€™ll share a model that helps you better understand why maintaining a balance is so important for your health and some of the key components that relate to the importance of having a dream related to the design of your exercise program and your overall well being.

Why Do You Exercise?

When you begin a workout or fitness program, ideally, youโ€™ll want to be in an excitable state. However, if youโ€™re in a state of burnout, starting any kind of physical activity could lead to problems, which are pretty common.

The challenge is maintaining a balanced state between working out and recovery based on the design of your exercise program. For example, if you work out at a given intensity, but your recovery time is too short, you wonโ€™t have the capacity to complete your next set within a prescribed window.

So, if youโ€™re trying to do 8-12 reps, and you go too fast between exercises, you may not even get to 8. Technically, this may mean youโ€™re draining your body more than training it.
