2-8-18…More is Not Always Better…

I’ve written about this before but it bears repeating….

More work is not always better.  It’s about working smarter not harder.  When you train with us, it creates a specific response physically and hormonally.  The point of training is to create a specific stress, then the body needs to rest and recover and it’s during the rest and recovery when the body accommodates and makes you more fit.  That’s why we always say 3 is key.  For most people that’s a great place to start.  Some people can handle 4 days, and that’s ok as long as you’re recovering well.  Anything more then that will usually have a negative effect for about 99.9% of the people in our gym.  If you have questions, feel free to talk to a coach and they can help guide you with the right amount of training for you.

It is not necessary to do more workouts on your own, or go running on your off days, etc.  If you want to do anything focus on mobility and recovering, maybe go for a nice non heart rate raising walk in nature etc.  Have fun.

Last two points…

If you want to work on your belly, make sure you’re following nutrition.  You can not do situps to flatten your tummy.  That’s a common misconception.  If you want to have a flat stomach dial in your nutrition and follow our training plan and those things will happen.

Reach out to your coach if you have any questions!
