THIS WEEK’S “ASK GILAD” BLOG
Question: You always hear about athletes "leaving it all" on the field. Does that mean that the best way to exercise is to keep going until you have expended every last ounce of energy?
Answer: If you are just starting an exercise program, think of it this way: "How much can I do and still have some energy left over?" My recommendation to anybody that is pursuing health and fitness is always to walk away from your workout feeling like you have some energy left. Never finish your workout feeling like you have given it everything that you've got. You will do that later on when you become more fit, and even then you will only "go for it all" once in a while.
