Right now, the overwhelming trend in exercise is to “push it.” Every little novelty franchise popping up around the world is creating a tagline like “best workout in town.” Sad. Not only is it a lie; but it’s worthless even if it were true.
The underlying mechanisms in chemistry, biochemistry and biology are actually really well understood with regard to muscle gain, weight loss, strength and mobility improvements. If someone wants a comprehensive explanation, message me.
To summarize, just use critical thinking: when you get run down, injured, busy, overwhelmed, can you OUTPERFORM last week? The fundamental mechanism for physical progress is to PROgress your output week after week. If the whole exercise method is to “go hard,” you have created an inevitable bottleneck. Yes, you will have survivors who didn’t YET get hurt; and they are called “testimonials.”
The fact of the matter is that “go slow” is the truth. It provides the consistent backdrop from which someone can leap forward here and there. And every week they live to fight another day. It’s not sexy. But it’s actually the only thing that works for the broad populace over the long haul.
