An Intelligent New Year’s Resolution: Workout Less, and Produce Better Results

“I’m going to work out more” is a popular New Year’s Resolution.  On the surface, this has merit.  However, a more intelligent resolution would be this: “I’m going to work out less than I did last year, but I’m going to get in far better shape and see better results.”  If your Resolution is at all related to exercise, I encourage you to focus on some variation of the latter Resolution.  The amount of exercise we perform has very little to do with the results we produce.  “How” we perform the exercise is far more important.  Intensity is the primary stimulus our improving our fitness.  As intensity increases, duration (how long we do something) must decrease.
