Physical Vitality Skills
The figure above is a construct I use to help students understand the relative value of the various components of physical vitality. I’ve been using it for years in my Stanford Continuing Studies course. I’ve also use it in presentations at Google, the Stanford Graduate School of Business and at the Boys and Girls Club of Silicon Valley.
Strength and endurance are what we think about most often when it comes to our physical vitality. These are some of the questions we most often ask ourselves:
How much can we lift?
How many sets?
How many miles can we walk, hike or run?
How far can I ride my bike?
Too often we forget about flexibility. That is why I placed “flexibility” at the base of the triangle. We need to consider flexibility as the foundation of our physical vitality. We also need to give ourselves credit when we work on our flexibility. The time we spend stretching our hamstrings, achilles, quads, shoulders and other joints should count toward our overall exercise time.
