“Stress + Rest = Growth. It’s as simple and as hard as that.”

by | Jul 30, 2018

Ah – simple yet hard.

This equation, per author  Brad Stulberg (@BStulberg), fits more than wellness in our lives.  For today – let’s stick with work and recovery in exercise.  And when we work out – it’s good for us boomers to complete at least 2/3rds of our training volume at low intensity (per RPE and heart rate).

In this OUTSIDE article, Brad states, “best endurance athletes in the world all have one thing in common: they oscillate between periods of stress and rest.”


Simple yet hard.


Be well,
