Tuesday, September 20

We have a few teams competing this weekend at the GR Games at 8th Day Gym in downtown Grand Rapids. The RX'd competition is Saturday and the modified division is Sunday. We have teams competing on both days and I am sure they'd love your support if you can make it down to cheer them on.----

In order for training to be effective, an overload must be presented. Training must be chronically harder, longer, and more demanding in some way as it progresses within months, years, and even at the career level. But while hard training is a must, it comes with one major side effect: cumulative fatigue.

This is a quote from a Juggernaut article on recovery. The article surveys the top methods of fatigue reduction and breaks them into three categories: - Those that work well - Those about which science is uncertain - Those that don’t seem to work as planned or much at all

Please read the full article for yourself, but if you don't remember that there are two very effective and simple things that will help you recover, train harder and get better results - sleep and nutrition. If you aren't doing these two things well you are sacrificing your performance and health. Sleep is the best way to recover and heal from hard workouts and you are fooling yourself if you think you can continue to train hard on less than optimal sleep.

The next time you are hurting, sick or just really sore, try sleeping an extra hour or two and see if you notice a difference in how you feel the next day.
