Excerpt from a post on the Salvation site today:
The middle is where most people train. They do not go hard enough on the hard days, or easy enough on the easy days. The zone that appears to be a good compromise is actually a dead end. The thinking goes like this, "I don't have enough time to do all that Foundation work, it's too easy for me anyway because I'm such a stud. So I'll bump up the intensity. On the other hand I am not strong enough to go really heavy or fast so I won't do any truly intense work, which isn't safe anyway. But I can increase the volume at the less intense level I've chosen and that should make it work just as well as ..." This decision-making process starts with a lack of time paired to an unrealistic expectation made by someone who wants it both ways.
How well is it likely to work?
