Exercise volume is one of the most critical components of training. It is a central tenet of mine that exercising at the highest volume from which you can recover is the best way to prepare for sport or to lift in the gym. The key to being a good coach or a good athlete is figuring out where your particular groove is. Find out how much you can handle, work in that range, and get the best results you can. Improve how much you can handle, and your results will be even better.
That said, I’m always on the lookout for good information about how much volume athletes and researchers do and the relationship between volume and results. Of course, when you cross over into overtraining, then higher volume is only going to hold you back, so finding a good sweet spot is critical.
