Requirements for Effective Exercise

For exercise to be effective, you need a sufficient stimulus to the body, and then you need to give the body a sufficient recovery time to allow growth. — Dr. Philip Alexander

According to Dr. Alexander, “there appears to be an exercise threshold, which is a minimum level of intensity needed to stimulate the body to make its growth changes. If your exercise intensity is too little, you won’t reach the threshold, and the body won’t be stimulated to grow.”
