I am ready to hit it again tonight. I know, from reading about overtraining, that rest days are good for you, but it is difficult to tell my brain that I have to stop. Testosterone, growth hormone, and cortisol. All of these and more are impacted by rest days. But what if you had a job that required a high level of physical activity? I had a job, between high school and college, that was very physically intensive. I don’t remember any overtraining symptoms, but I was way younger. To be fair, the work was heavy, but not as intense as CrossFit can be.

Check today’s video. A good look at the athletes that participated in the CrossFit Invitational. Sevan is a great filmmaker and I dig his work.
