    You don't have to be mad to workout here, but it helps

    https://www.independent.co.uk/life-s...-a8484126.html

    Article about the benefits of exercise to mental health

    The study suggests the optimum is 45 minutes, 3 to 5 times a week and activities involving social interaction were more beneficial

    However , those training for more than 90 minutes per session appeared to do harm to their mental health

    For real though. When I injured my arm and wasn't able to lift or jiujitsu last December, I did indeed start going a bit nuts.
    I ended up on a cardio-heavy workout scheme, which as it turns out is way less pleasant in the winter than it is in the summer.

    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    True, but hard does not necessarily mean long. For instance https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/hea...-workouts.html

    Granted this is referring to weight loss rather than cardiovascular fitness, skills development, etc, but I think the notion of long hard work outs are good for you holds less water

    Let me be clearer.

    Getting good at something requires hard work. Yes, it takes a toll on the person.

    So the OP article states nothing new to me. And the weight loss article is irrelevant.

    After about a week of not training, my insomnia starts to get real bad. Training is what keeps me sane.
