Today’s article builds off of last week’s post about capacity. As stated previously, our body’s ability to handle stress (capacity) can be built slowly over the course of time.
Since everyone has a different background, each individual’s capacity will be a bit different. This is going to be relevant when discussing how much total volume of training an individual can handle but also the specific type of training they can handle. Check out the video below to see what I mean:
Using this information we can start to get a handle on how much a given athlete will be able to handle. If you’re in a group training environment then it will also give us some information about suitable modifications for the day’s workout for those that need a modification.
If you enjoyed this short clip then I wanted to let you know it’s part of a much longer webinar series included with subscription into my Fitness Pain Free Insiders Online Mentoring Program:
I created this series because coaches and personal trainers everywhere are working with athletes in pain every day of the week. This series will tell you exactly what to do (and what not to do) with these athletes so they can continue working towards their goals and prevent injuries in the long haul.
