The little indestructible creature clued me into my greatest epiphany; that adaptations to exercise are promotive, rather than the widely believed “protective”.

How so?

When conditions are extremely rough, the little Tardi goes into a low energy/low metabolism state.

To PROTECT itself – to PRESERVE itself.

How does our body respond to exercise?

By creating a physiology of higher energy demands, and higher metabolic rate.

This is anything but protective – this is asking for MORE.

This is challenging the challenge.

Now let’s think about how this applies to “over-training”.

And cardio.

Think about it.

I’ll have my post on the topic up soon.
