Sunday Thoughts: High-Intensity vs. Low-Intensity Training

What can you do to facilitate and promote activity? Sometimes you need to start slow. There are many barriers to exercise and a big one is a lack of enjoyment. Adding DOMS to someone already apprehensive won’t help. Focus on finding activities someone is more likely to adhere to. When consistency is established and a base of fitness is built, ramp the intensity. Overtraining kills consistency, increases injury risk, and lessens enjoyment. Low-intensity training still infers some benefits. Intensity and volume are important but you don’t have to start high with either.
