You May Not Need to Workout Harder
Smarter? Yes. Harder? Doubtful. If you seek elevated heart rate as a confirmation that you are doing the right thing, it’s probably the exact opposite for you.
I think it’s beneficial to continually remind ourselves about the Blue Zones: various micro-cultures the world over which are comprised of on-average leaner people with low-to-no risks or incidence of heart disease and cancer.
Do you really think 80-year-old men sipping alcohol in the town square on a Greek island are tracking steps or jogging?
Do you really think 90-year-old Okinawan karate instructors are fit because they sweat non-stop in a workout?
There is this propensity to get stuck in a trap with toothpick limbs and ever-growing paunch by emphasizing continuous elevated heart rate efforts.
Try rest. Try peace. Try mindset. Get strong. Be intense momentarily. Don’t burn yourself out.
