REST AND RECOVERY

When it comes to physical training, too much too often can lead to injury and burnout. It's common for the overzealous to overdo their training schedules. A typical schedule for some seeking a high level of fitness is to schedule three days of cardio-work, three days of strength training, and two days of flexibility exercise such as yoga or Tune-Up per week. This schedule does not allow for any rest and recovery time. When you're improving overall fitness, your body becomes tired.
