    What is the relationship between physical fitness and health?

    Health is about balance of three key ingredients: sleep, nutrition and exercise. You might note, I put exercise at the end of that sentence. I think of health in that order. Every day I try and do these two things:


    1. Wake up rested by sleeping 7–9 hrs each night.
    2. Eat balanced meals that are made of real food. Make it social.


    I don’t have cheat days and I don’t mix new diets trends into my meals. I do drink and eat more on the weekends… but with friends. I don’t think of this as cheating. My meals sizes do change, but by keeping those meals social I adhere to these food values I believe in. The meals are mixed with food, conversation and energy. I am not scarfing down shitty burgers in my car.

    3. Be active
    We can’t forget exercise. I love being intensely active, but it’s not an everyday thing. I run, I surf, I hike, I bike as much as my lifestyle allows. I like intense exercise because it fits my personality, but that’s not to say it’s more healthy than other forms of exercise. I look like a awkward giraffe in yoga class, you might look like an elegant swan. Do what works best for you. I am active every day. I walk around, I stand. I talk. I MOVE! If you can’t get 10,000 steps or 30 min of active time each day without a intense workout, I would suggest re-thinking your health beliefs and study more. As Reel 2 Real told us, I like to move it, move it! Thanks!

    Health means a person has good physical health, no injuries, diseases or issues, and good mental health and well being.

    For me I think it is a lot easier to achieve this goal once you truly aim for it. But the thing is how to maintain it once you acheivethe bench mark you/re trying to achieve, then what? I think the most difficult past is to hoe to maintain what you've achieved so far.

    If you are a physically fit person, then most likely you are a healthy person in the general sense unless, in pursuit of health, you have injured yourself or have reached a constant level of exhaustion from exercising leading to poor health. For example, a pro bodybuilder or a pro powerlifter or weightlifter with plenty of muscle may not be a healthy person inside due to chronic exposure to muscle building and performance enhancing chemicals. He or she may look “fit” but not healthy based on lab results.


    If you have increased your lungs and heart capacity naturally, using sports and physical exercises (combined with a good diet), then you are a healthier person enjoying the benefits of a healthy blood pressure, low body ft and you possess higher than usual stamina and endurance.


    I strive for maximum fitness and conditioning based on a long-term (slow and steady) approach with a primary focus on full recovery, proper nutrition/diet, and exercise safety.


    I focus on heart and lung conditioning and increasing mobility and endurance (quality of life). I use an optimized weightlifting lifestyle, and I follow the prescribed nutritional and recovery guidelines associated and practiced by Powerlifting and Weightlifting sports. It is working great for me.


    If you are a candidate for weightlifting and If you follow this sort of lifestyle and if you do it right with, in time the real results show up in your annual medical checkup and physical examination. Your numbers gets better leaning toward normalcy in time.


    Every year, you can see results of healthy hormonal levels leading to fat loss and muscle building, better and improved cardiovascular conditioning improvements leading to more stamina and everything else related to the health (Sugar, salt, etc.).


    Don't expect to score perfect numbers every time but from here you can focus on increasing health by adjusting the Nutrition ( quantity and quality), modifying the Recovery Phase and changing Exercise Intensity and Volume.


    I compare my yearly results of medical check-up, and that is a good indication of overall health.


    I hope I provided some clues.


    Mansour’s disclaimer:


    Don't do anything stupid and get hurt lifting big weights after reading some of my answers. This would make us both quite unhappy. Consult a Medical Doctor, a Strength Training coach and common-sense specialist before doing anything you may read in some of my answers.
