The Common Fallacy of Fatigue & Exercise

Exercise is a tool for optimization. There is no one single way to accomplish this, there are many avenues!  However, If this one big thing is misjudged you could be headed for disaster; the amount of fatigue in your workouts.

If you notice that you barely get what you put into exercise, you might be falling for this huge fallacy in fitness, that states of fatigue are required to get results.

The truth is that your body doesn’t require you to kill it and walk around with sore muscles.  Join Rui and Jenn for an episode of Exercise Science Insider to explore the inner workings of fatigue and exercise.  

What you’ll learn in this episode:

  • Some of the neural and muscular inner workings of fatigue and exercise
  • Why you don’t want to waste your workouts on too much fatigue
  • There are connections between pain and exercise fatigue
  • How we help our clients understand this concept so that they can get more out of every workout.
