Alright, the title may be a little deceiving but when it comes down to
it, it's true and hopefully grabbed your attention. The human body is
designed to run in a status quo style where it is constantly attempting
to stay at homeostasis. Homeostasis is defined as the tendency toward a
relatively stable equilibrium between interdependent elements, esp. as
maintained by physiological processes. Basically it wants to stay
neutral, to stay level, to stay the same.
When we train with weights, run or perform any type of physically
demanding activity our body technically doesn't like it. It wants to
maintain homeostasis and physical activity usually breaks that
condition. You can define this physical demand we place on our body as
a stress. We are damaging our muscle fiber, motor units and cells and
actually producing toxins in our body. Now this may come as a shock or
may make you think twice about hitting the gym again, but it shouldn't.
