When you’re motivated to hit a goal, it can be easy to go to extremes. Let’s be honest: you’re either all in, or all out. That’s how many of us operate, especially when we’re in the zone, on a mission to get leaner, fitter, and stronger.
For the most part, I see this kind of focus and energy as a positive thing, however, there is definitely a downside to going too hard. When we go all in, it is very easy to burn out. We hit the gas pedal so hard that inevitably we eventually run out of gas. This is where adequate recovery comes into play. If recovery isn’t made a priority in our training plan, we are setting ourselves up for exhaustion and injury, and ain’t nobody got time for that. But I am going to give you the tools to not just train hard, but to recover properly, so that you stay on track every single month of this amazing year.
