Pre- and Post-Workout Strategies

Exercise itself is merely a stimulus for change.

The purpose of exercise is to induce stress on the body (e.g. mechanical stress, metabolic stress, nervous system stimulation).

It’s not just to burn calories or to get our hearts pumping. Exercise is a tool we need in order to force our bodies to change.

The readiness of our physiology to withstand the stress of exercise and the way we nourish our bodies between exercise sessions are what truly dictate our response. In other words, our bodies need to be challenged but also need to recover if we want to see positive changes.
