Please welcome Jessica. She’s badass. She’s hardcore. She’s a friend of mine. She’s a woman who KNOWS life is too too too short to spend it over-training…
Many of us workout to get sexy.
Cut biceps, lean thighs, and endorphins are some of the few things that keep us coming back for more.
However, you can have too much of a good thing.
Meaning, you can exercise too much. (MizFit note: translation–dont be me!)
Clear signs you might be on the “burnout train” include, decrease performance, mood changes, delayed recovery, fatigue and insomnia.
These symptoms are clearly, not sexy.
So instead of working out super hard everyday for 90 days straight and then crashing, try to take at least one recovery day a week. (MizFit note: rest rest rest is SO underrated)
Create sustainable energy loops in your body by checking in on a daily basis to see what is available.
Don’t get it twisted, getting an 8-pack in a few months is impressive, but it’s not worth your health.
True health, being of sound mind, body and spirit for the long haul is REAL sexiness.
