Can you say physiology? Physiology is the study of the mechanical, physical, and biochemical functions of living organisms. It deals with the functions of life and living matter (organs, tissues or cells). The word is derived from Greek: ‘physis’- nature or origin and ‘logos’ speech or literally to talk about the nature of things.
Your next door neighbors probably look different from you. In height, skin tone, hair color and style, bone structure etc. The same is true for the differences between a Hyundai and a Lamborghini. They’re almost too numerous to mention, but the mechanics involved with either vehicle taking you from point A to point B are virtually the same.
You need fuel for the engine which has to be burned and converted to mechanical force in order to propel the vehicle. The engines need oil. Both cars have tires which need air. Both need hoses, belts and filters. They have seats, a steering wheel and mirrors; the list goes on.

The same thing applies to you and your neighbors. Despite the apparent physical differences, there are physiological functions that are virtually the same. It’s the efficiency of these functions that produce your results; like how you respond to exercise, fat loss and fitness programs.
In the same way that the model of the car has nothing to do with how force and motion works to get you from A to B, the name or style or type of workout program you subscribe to has nothing to do with your results.
There are basically only three things that control your results:
1. How well the program stimulates the proper physiological responses.
2. How much you believe in the program and therefore…
3. How much effort and commitment you will put into the program’s routine.
Stop searching for the next big thing and start researching the facts. Find out about how all human bodies burn fat, or build muscle and then get professional help designing a program that suits your needs. Because of all the variables that affect human performance, like stress or motivation, individual results will vary.
