In your latest Question of Strength article you talk about CNS crash after a heavy workout. Here you give a couple of pointers on how to recognize this. Just wanted to know what a heavy workout is in your eyes? Is there a certain thershold you need to surpass in terms of 1RM of perhaps even volume?
Myself, I’m doing 80% of 1RM workouts four days a week for twice a day + one day of CrossFit at te moment. The problem arises that indeed on some days I can crash 2-3 hours later, but on other days I don’t. Can’t point out why that is. Other than tweaking the variables of the training, are there any other things I can do to avoind that crash? To be honest, I’d like to be productive during the rest of my day too, don’t we all!?
Thanks in advance!
