Hi all,

Just wanted to get opinions, do you think that cardio fitness will improve recovery ability.

The exact answer to your question is yes. However bear in mind that what most people call cardio vascular fitness has turned out to really be a type of muscular fitness.

Research performed in Montreal showed that you can′t really improve on your cadio vascular system very much.

So in light of these findings cardio vascular fitmess and cardio vascular health must be paramount to the same thing.

If you do not have good cardio health then you won′t recover quickly.

Hi Ferrari,

If on a scale of 1-10, 1 being very unfit and 10 being super fit. If a person was super fit they would be able to train with more volume and more frequently, and if a person was very unfit they would need to train with less volume and less frequently.

cheers kendo!

An unfit person would have more to gain from training and would therefore gain faster than a fit person.

I don′t understand the point of your question. Is the idea to trian with more volume and frequency or to make the maximum gains?

Whether you start from a high or low fitness level. You are still headed in a direction of overall fitness.

Fitness (The popular interpretation of fitness) is measured by how much work you can do in a certain time period. Recovery from a HIT workout can take up to 30 days for some people. These are at opposite ends of the scale.

In the end I don′t believe that your level of fitness is the limiting factor, it′s your recovery ability.

Hi Ferrari,

Would fitness level and recovery ability go hand in hand, so if a person took 30 days to recover from a workout if that person increased fitness level they could recover quicker maybe 29 or 28 days from a workout.

cheers kendo!
