All this technical stuff can get pretty complex!
But just as a quick review, last time we covered how energy systems give us insight into how workouts should FEEL!
The truth is the body is complicated, and to make the best progress, you shouldn’t do crushing workouts all the time.
Energy systems give us a language and framework to understand these concepts.
And we use a House analogy to teach and simplify these concepts.
But even in simplifying, much of this can seem complicated.
That’s ok, just know you are gaining knowledge that only a tiny percentage of people have.
In our model, there are three broad systems: Electricity, Plumbing, and Ventilation
We use these words to indicate the roles that they play in a house.
In a house there is electricity, with wiring that provides shocking power, it has plumbing with pipes that deliver and flush fluids, and it has ventilation, with ducts and windows that keep the air flowing and temperature controlled.
It’s the same way with the body, but for us, electricity is the signals from brain to muscle 💪🏼 for powerful contractions, plumbing is the cellular fueling elements like capillaries and heart, and ventilation is how we get air through the lungs and blood.
Each one of the 15 categories of the Level Method falls into a specific energy system.
And here’s where it gets really interesting! By taking the appropriate scores from your levels, we can determine what your energy system strengths and weaknesses are!
These are known as AGGREGATE scores — a complicated word that basically means a SUMMARY OVERVIEW of what systems you are best in!
- Your Electricity score is an aggregate score of your overall muscle strength.
- Your Plumbing score is an aggregate score of your overall cellular fueling.
- Your Ventilation score is an aggregate score of your overall aerobic fueling.
Whew… YOU MADE IT THROUGH!
You are pretty much a Level Method Ninja now!
In our next email we’ll be covering the TRUE meaning of “RX” or “Prescribed” workout.
Have a great day and chat soon!
