Cross Training

OK, so we all have heard of cross training but do we know what it means. The beauty of cross training is that it gives our muscles a different set of instructions and that will give certain overused muscle a break and enable others to develop. We see this with all sports now. Pro football players doing yoga. Swimmers like Gary Hall Jr. using boxing training as part of their dryland routine. And who could forget the prototype for cross training, Bo Jackson?
I think that many times people develop overuse injuries because they fail to give their bodies a change of routine and intensity.
It is also good for the psychology of training .More later... You know I read this book that said that it takes reaching about a hundred people to find one person thats willing to contribute an idea. Well here's hoping that this finds that one. Let me know your ideas.
