Drop your Ego, Train to your Capacity: Part 1

As athletes, we all have different goals for our training, to be met at different points in our lives, and often in completely different ways. At each of these points, our training methods may vary greatly, but in any kind of physical training, we are working within three different personal capacities: 

  1. Endurance capacity
  2. Strength capacity
  3. Range of motion capacity.

Colin says, “There is a fine line between pushing an adaptation and training outside of your capacity. The concept of progressive overloading is to approach, and carefully breach, our capacity in order to expand said capacity (adapt). If we are chronically training far beyond these capacities, the likelihood of overtraining and injury increases dramatically.”

Check out the full post from Dr. Colin Baillargeon — over at Move First Chiropractic — for his take on the importance of safely working within your own personal capacities in order to achieve the most productive training routine your body can effectively manage.
