Exercise or Training?

What’s the difference- we are told exercise is good for our health but there is a massive difference between exercise and training.

Exercise in its self is non-directional see it more as activity. Indeed most people perform some form of exercise, would you say these people have anywhere near optimum strength levels, body composition, mobility etc. Probably not! A session of walking or 20 minutes on the cross trainer undoubtably has a benefit on the cardiovascular system. It will provide a stress that the body needs to adapt to and will result in an endorphin rush that will leave a positive mood. After a while (around 6 weeks) progression will start to slow and fitness levels will plateau unless exercise is performed in an organised fashion. Training by definition is exercise performed in an organised fashion- so what do you do exercise aimlessly or do you have a training programme that is designed to hit your goals?
