Default 12 Tips to Tune the Nervous System

Thought I would post this for discussion...

12 Tips to Tune the Nervous System

T NATION | 12 Tips to Tune the Nervous System

1. Don't dwell over your training.
2. A big event requires a big recovery.
3. Don't even think about program hopping.

"Am I doing enough?" "Is what I'm doing working?" These are warning signs. The best athletes don't question their programs. They hit it hard, go home, and get it out of their mind. Have confidence in what you're doing.
4. Relax.
5. Nap.
6. Pick your aggressive spots.

Sympathetic activation is short lived, and as mentioned, nothing is worse than letting it idle. Turn it on, let it do its thing, and shut it down. Save the heavy metal and head butting for just before your big sets, not during your pre-workout foam roll.
7. Do compound lifts.

The big lifts are far more "exciting" as compared to isolation exercises. They activate more motor units and affect the body on a global level. In the end, it all comes back to the bear-in-the-woods reaction.

Getting stronger and bigger is a protective reaction to avoid death and harm. A 500-pound squat is more life threatening than a 500-pound leg extension.
8. Train hard, recover harder.
9. Reconsider your training split.

But smaller guys from the less favorable end of the gene pool might be better off following up a high intensity day with a lighter day. Recovery can't happen if you're constantly under maximal duress.
10. Celebrate special occasions.
11. Account for doing something different.
12. Learn how to breathe.

Destroy That Which Destroys You
