Break the Mold

In fitness, we are continually trying to fit a round peg in a square hole.

For example, a Kvellian mentioned to me that their body felt best after three days of rest.  The program they were doing called for two days rest so they asked should I just suck it up.  My answer, no!  The program is a template, not an individual plan based on recovery ability, current stress load, nutrition, etc. 

We are constantly working around things like work, school, etc.  Many of us don’t realize we can break the mold.  That Kvellian can do the exact same program, but rest one extra day for maximum benefit.  Maybe you can work on Saturday and Sunday and take off in the middle of the week. 

I get there are limitations due to many things, but where can you break the mold in life and do what fits you best?​​
