Example text

Therefore, you cannot completely isolate your performance to the balance of fitness and fatigue, but their relationship is one of the largest components determining performance. Acutely, when you train hard and get tired it is intuitively obvious that you cannot lift as heavy or as many times as when you are fresh. Think about if you squat your one rep max, drop the weight by 20% and bang out a set of five, sprint around a 400 meter track, and then come back to the squat rack - your one rep max is going to be considerably less in this “fatigued” state.

This “wheel spinning” is very common, while true overtraining is rare in strength and physique athletes. But nonetheless, it’s important to be aware that when we train hard and performance doesn’t seem to improve, if we push ourselves even harder, it can backfire. An Aside: Balance Volume, Life & Fatigue To Ensure Adherence & Sustainability When we increase volume, it can cause more fatigue. However, as we mentioned in the previous chapter discussing adherence, our bodies are exposed to many different types of stress that affects performance [15], not only training.

Lastly, remember the Fitness and Fatigue Model, when you are in a state of higher than normal fatigue and/or lower than normal recuperative abilities, the amount of volume that will be optimal will be less. This is because you will generate fatigue from outside of the gym, and fatigue will dissipate at a slower rate. That means, whether you’re dieting or gaining affects the optimal volume, as well as other things like life stress, travel, illness etc. But you should be able to find the right volume for yourself if you start within the range suggested in the table below and adjust from there according to your response.
