How many times have you seen someone with a great physique, plenty of bulging muscles and a flat, six pack set of abs, but wondered if they're really in great shape?
The first thing you ask yourself is how you define the word "shape?" If by shape and adding the word "great" to it, you mean a body that is low on fat and high on perfection when you see tremendous definition, lean muscle and looks good in a tank top, then the answer to the aforementioned question about the great physique and huge muscles is simple.
Yes, they're in great shape.
But realistically, being in "great shape" means to have endurance, flexibility and not necessarily be the guy or gal that looks flawless from a muscle perspective but rather can endure a longer workout, lots of cardiovascular work or doesn't get winded walking to the mailbox, even though they can bench press 500 pounds or leg press twice as much as that.
To truly call yourself in good shape, you need to have the basics covered. Can you walk on the treadmill for an hour or run for 30 minutes and not get winded at least two or three times per week?
