Did you get in a good workout today?
Let’s talk about muscle soreness and what it means … Today, and all week we’ll look at the issues that surround training intensity and effect.
How do you know whether it was good or not?
There are many ways to judge…..
1. Did you break a good sweat?
2. Did you do more than usual?
3. Did you get a good burn on?
4. Did you decrease your time?
5. Did you increase your distance?
Some of these are more subjective measures than others. But that doesn’t mean one is a better or worse way of judging your physical activity.
While numbers are an objective way of judging and mapping progress, how you feel matters, too.
And, interestingly, a lot of us — especially beginners — judge a workout by how they feel after the session has ended. Both immediately and for the next several days. And this is despite how much effort they put in or what their form was like!
For a metabolic effect you must hit a few targets..
Heat – you must get hot ( some of us don’t sweat much)
Burn – muscle burn
Heavy – overload your muscles
Hard – intensity must be high.
