It’s been a good while since we’ve seen this WOD…. compare your previous time here.

I’m often asked “Is what we do really enough? Should I be doing anything else?”  This is something that is very individual and if you talk to any of the trainers we all have a little different way we like to train, by incorporating rest days, lifting, or some sport specific work.  It really shakes out to what your specific goals are.  But we all have one very important thing in common.  We LISTEN TO OUR BODIES.  Here is an excerpt from an article on Marks Daily Apple the may help provide a little insight.  “There’s a clinical definition – a state of chronic fatigue, depression, and  underperformance that persists despite rest – and there’s a more general,  working definition – a basic imbalance between work and recovery. Overtraining  can also be highly personal and goal-dependent. Overtraining might describe  anytime your training is working against you, and where adding more of it makes  the problem worse. If you want to avoid overtraining, there are some grand,  overarching principles to follow, but you’ll also want to pay attention to  certain personal, entirely subjective cues.”  Continue reading at Marks daily apple here.
