CrossFit Training and Intensity

Interesting Article from JTS on "The Sport of Fitness" and intensity in training. Although this is written for competitive CrossFit there are also some great take aways for general training. With our own programming we like to keep in mind that it is easier to break someone down than it is to build them up. The goal should not be soreness, pain, or volume, it should be to give your body the right type and amount of stimulus to produce a favourable adaptation.
