Feeling Good Tip

Feeling Stressed From Going All Out?

I watched a great video where the speaker (a professor at Berkeley) spoke of the science of weight training and how to lift for endurance or strength. He said that one should lift between 30% and 80% of their maximum load. The closer to 80% the more the strength gains. The range between 30% and 50% took care of maintaining muscle and building endurance. What if we applied the same principle to our everyday lives. We don’t have to go 100% to achieve maximum results. We can scale back and achieve optimum results and simultaneously reduce our stress levels. Are you running at 100%? Try scaling back by easing your foot off the acceleration pedal. You’ll feel better.
