          How to Work Out
Here's one of the keys to fast fitness - you want to maintain a persistently high level of metabolic activity every day. The best way to do this is to provide your body with two things – variety and challenge. It's not enough to follow an “exercise routine” where you always do the same exercise, the same way, at the same speed, for the same amount of time.

          The Principle of Overload
Muscles adapt and grow when they are forced (with proper form) to overcome a resistance they have not experienced before. In weight training, that's called the "principle of overload".

If you find this site helpful, I would like to ask just one thing. Please, please, sign your organ donor card, discuss this choice with your family, and encourage your friends and family to do the same. Like everything else on this site, it's not enough to read this. Nothing happens unless you actually do it. I promise, it won't affect the medical care you get while you're alive, and you won't miss anything when you're gone. But you'll save lives. And I have no doubt that Lisa Sherman, my dear friend on earth, and my guardian angel in heaven, will find some way to thank you. She was 37.
