One of the good things about working out in Warrior is that it has several sessions a day catering to everyone's schedule. Whether it is in the morning 5:30am and 8:30 am, in the evening 6:30pm or weekend classes, there is a group of enthusiastic people exercising at a designated location. Cheering on each other and pushing each other to the finish line.

Exercise is good for you but sometimes in our quest to improve we think the more the better and consequently do not allow our bodies enough rest and recuperation. The outcome is that by over-training we actually do more harm than good and weaken our chances of achieving our goals.
Signs of over-training to look out for:

We live in an age of pure convenience; almost everything you could ever want is easy to access and utilize. Instead of planting your own garden, washing and cutting up your own food, you can buy pre-chopped veggies at the grocery store. Instead of walking up three flights of stairs, you can take the elevator. But is all this ease actually harming you?

We use our hands for EVERYTHING.
Whether it’s everyday tasks like carrying groceries, opening jars, and lifting suitcases, or gym-related activities like chin-ups, rows, and deadlifts. Of course, you probably also type at your computer for hours – with resulting aches and pains at the end of the work day.
Stretching out the hands and building up a strong grip can help in all of those areas. A strong grip has even been correlated to lower mortality rates – and you can also imagine the usefulness of a stronger grip for aging individuals if they happen to slip.
Let's look through the types of grips

Most people’s definition of “strength” and “endurance” barely scrapes the surface. Strength is not just for bodybuilders, defined only by how many pullups or pushups you can do, and “endurance”, not solely a necessity for runners and related to how long you can run without stopping. When it comes to athletic performance, there’s far more to these disciplines. Here, we want to clarify the meaning of the two and why for maximum performance, it’s necessary to train both.

For a variety of reasons, the worldwide rates of physical and mental illness and disease continue to increase . This is despite advances in science, medicine, technology and research. It has also been suggested that due to the effect of obesity on longevity, the steady rise in life expectancy during the past two centuries may soon come to an end . With the populations of the world at extreme ends of health crises, what can be done to reverse these devastating health issues, to create and support a population that is not just ‘not sick’, but is actually healthy, happy, and thriving?

Lots of people rely on the scales for feedback on their fitness progress, but the number on the scale can be misleading. Not to mention, we all have different goals in mind and some goals might not actually include weight loss. But don’t worry, there are lots of ways to keep tabs on the progress of your health and fitness. The way you feel is more important than the numbers on the scale.

Most people tend to think that eating less is the key to a stronger and healthier body. But that’s not necessarily true.
Because what you might not realize is that when you have fitness and skill goals, eating too little can actually hurt your performance.
In fact, here’s what can happen when you try to significantly restrict calories when being active:

Although you probably don't like to admit it, deep down you know your body is crying out for a rest. But as usual, you push through. Mind over matter, only the weak need rest, no pain no gain, I'll sleep when I die, and besides, busyness is importance and I like being important. Yet once again you hear the quiet call from within... “stop, rest... please!” What do you do? Do you listen to your body? What is rest to you?

For competitions like the Spartan Race, which require strength-endurance, a high-carb diet at least one week prior to the race is recommended. The evening before, a “pasta party” would be ideal to fill glycogen stores up with a big portion of pasta or potatoes. Also, you should avoid alcohol the days before, as it interferes with the lipolysis and has a calming effect, which can have disadvantages in your performance.
