How should you train if your goal is all-around fitness? What is all-around fitness? According to Dave and Jim, an integral part of total fitness is not only being strong, but also being in shape; not only being athletic, but also being able to run; not only being good at weight training, but also being able to perform bodyweight exercises. It means having few—or no—physical limitations due to your fitness level.

The key to being good at all of these things? Not trying to be great at all of them. Training for all-around fitness means constructing a program that teaches you to be well-rounded in a variety of fitness qualities. It doesn't mean you'll be the best at any of them.

The reason for this is simple, and it is what Jim Wendler calls The Push-Pull Concept: when you push something new into your training, you need to pull something out. You can't squat six days a week and try to run a four-minute mile. You can't add high-intensity Prowler sprints seven days a week and continue to push your squat numbers up in the same month.

In this edition of Off Topic, Dave takes all of these things and more into account when sharing his perspective about the concept of "all-around fitness." Dave and Jim discuss training goals and explain how trying to build all-around fitness can demonstrate a valuable lesson in programing priorities.
