Comment of the Week
“In my experience, Mark doesn’t advocate pushing yourself to the point where you need painkillers or multiple days off. In fact, he has spoken at length about avoiding “crushing” yourself in the gym as it doesn’t make evolutionary sense to be non-functional for a period after a workout. . I think the point is to challenge yourself in a way that produces a compensatory response in the body. “Failure” doesn’t have to mean struggling to get every last ugly rep, it can be failure of form, grace, etc. It is a relative term. In other words, don’t leave 10 reps in the tank and expect to make strength or fitness gains. This is different than the approach to microworkouts, which is about increasing movement rather than a particular fitness goal. In any case, it sounds like you’ve found a way that works for you. Cheers!”
-Well said, Brad.
