Re: Is there something as to much endurance work?

Although they train different areas, any physical stress and really any stress in general will take away from your overall recovery.

So if you are doing 3 endurance workouts a day 7 days a week, good luck getting your squat up.

In addition you get less and less benefit from the more you do especially if your recovery can't keep up.

Those who can handle high volume have built their overall capacity over years. So you have to go low and slow to build.

So I'd back it up and ask what are your fitness goals.

From an efficiency stand point, what is the minimal amount you can put in to get the desired result. This type of thinking will probably be better for recovery as opposed to how much of a beating can I take before I breakdown.
