This week we have three articles to read. The first is a 2-minute read from Dave Tate about the 5 elements every training session should have. The next 2 are both related to good training, bad training, and the recovery needed to make progress.
It’s short and it’s worth the read. If your training sessions just aren’t what they used to be, I’d bet that you’re missing at least one of 1 of these 5 things you need to do every session.
Good training isn’t always hard training, make you puke training, or wear you down training. For many of us, good training is easy training. It’s training we can recover from and go about our daily lives, go to work, and hang out with our families when we’re done.
Along the same lines as Tony Gentilcore’s post, the Precision Nutrition post provides a detailed breakdown of what happens when you repeatedly chase the “crushing” workout. When you punish yourself through challenging workout after challenging workout but never allow yourself to recover, you creep up on the mythical overtraining. PN gives you an easy to follow guide to what to look for and what you can do to keep making progress.
