(Post 89) Listening to the Body...But not too Close and Not too Far Away.

When rehabilitating and training your body, it is essential that you listen to it.

But the question is, how close do we listen to it?

The answer is ambiguously clear...

Too close? and we get lost as we change direction too frequently.

Too far? and we keep the same strategy for too long and then we break down.

So here is where the traffic light can guide us.

Better after exercise? -- Green light -- Go on !!!

No change after exercise? -- yellow light -- Proceed with caution !!!!!

Worse after exercise? -- Red Light -- Back off, by reducing the intensity, resistance, speed, repetitions, but don't stop !!!!!!!!!!
