To become stronger, faster and fitter, we push our bodies harder.
All workouts stress the body, especially the tough ones. You’re fatiguing various muscles when working out which causes microscopic damage to the muscle cells. Hormone and enzyme levels fluctuate and inflammation increases.
These are exactly the changes you’re after to amp up your overall physical and mental performance. Changes like muscle growth, fat loss, improved insulin sensitivity, reduced inflammation, better cardiovascular health and overall healthier minds and bodies. But you need to give your body time for those changes to take effect before you start adding more stress to the system.
