The Training Effect

Daniel Crisp

The human body is phenomenal. Its current physiological work capacity is only sufficient to match its current chronic functional demands that are placed upon it. The body’s physiological systems adapt to correct any disruptions in the bodies internal environmental conditions.

Put more simply, if you don’t exercise, your body doesn’t need to adapt to the stresses placed upon it. However, if you train your physiological systems (exercise) effectively, your body uses its adaptive mechanism to adapt to the stresses being placed upon it.
