Until a few years ago, it seemed that workouts were all about quantity. A better workout would involve more reps.
Recently, I have started reading and hearing about how quality is perhaps even more important. Instead of doing, for example, as many push ups as possible I should do just as few as one. One very long, and excruciating, push up.
I was surprised by this and a little bit amused by how this seems to support the Handmade Movement view that it is far better to have one quality handmade product than many cheap, low-quality similar items.
