Default intensity

It seems rather obvious in words, but it's taken me a long time to learn by painful experience that the right amount of intensity is the amount that allows you to make consistent progress. It doesn't matter that you're working at 110 percent every single day if you're not making progress, or that you take it easy once in a while as long as you are making progress.

By looking at the the outputs (performance measurements) you evaluate the inputs (level of intensity, exercise selection, etc.) What is important is whether you are moving forward or backward, not whether you are punishing yourself adequately on a regular basis.
