Long term progress

Most of us know that we can not train as hard as possible on every single workout for weeks and months at a time without burning out, getting sick or injured, or in a worse case scenario, all of the above. If you are being proactive about your training then you plan cycles of varying intensity which may cover several weeks or months at a time. Those who just sort of free-style their training may naturally cycle training intensity as they intuitively recognize that there is a limit to how often they can push to the max without over doing it.

Regardless of the approach you use to intensity cycling (logically planned or just winging it) keep in mind that some flexibility must always be present to account for or take advantage of unexpected energy highs and lows. In other words it is good to have a plan but don’t get so rigid that you force a hard day when you could really use a rest, or stick with a planned easy day even though you can tell your energy is at an all time high.
