This WILL Make or Break You………..

Recovery that is.

Recovery should be the first thing planned into ANY program. Think parasympathetic activities ( stretching, rocking, rolling, crawling,, walking meditation, ice baths, etc..

Lack of recovery will send you to a catabolic hard crash, to the point it can take weeks even months to fully recover from. Whereas planning it will allow you to rebound nice, come back fresh, kicking ass, breaking PR’s.

Use a Hi/Low model of planning your weekly training. Max effort lift Monday,or sprints, Tempo runs or cycling on Tuesday, (Low)

Anything activity above 75% max intensity is considered a high cnc training stressor. That is your gauge in planning your workouts.

You get better when you recover, so, recover/regenerate, don’t pan to simply destroy…

Here is a unique and challenging one for you to try.

Comment with any feedback you may have after trying it.
