How much fitness is enough

"At this point, we really don't know how much cardiovascular training is too much."

Okay, I get that because it's just impossible to run people to death, but they said it in the paper. 

In the mayo clinic study, they said it twice. They said, "we don't know how much it's too much".

Then they talk about studying the data and then it came back then said at this point, "we just don't know how much is too much."



So that's pretty remarkable that you repeat yourself in a study because you want to try to get all this information out and you come up with we don't know how much is too much for the average individual. It's self-limiting because you probably have to go to work or do other things so you just can't go in and see how long you can go.

There are clean up and eating and all these other things that are involved. It's just self-limiting the takeaway would be that you're okay to do what you can do and at some point.

You just have to realize that I've been on the apparatus for 30 minutes. I can go forever, now once I establish I can go forever, don't.
