Another model for performance allows us to better understand how we progress strength, especially when we move beyond the novice linear progression.
The fitness fatigue model divides the positive and negative reactions into fitness and fatigue respectively. The sum of these two is performance. After a stress event, fatigue peaks before fitness, allowing the adaptation that we understand from the SRA cycle.
For advanced training, however, as opposed to trying to figure out what the stress event is as we elongate the entire cycle, it helps to think of overreaching as building up fatigue and then adjusting training to allow fatigue to dissipate while minimizing the decrease in fitness. We benefit from the fact that fitness peaks after fatigue. We thus drive up performance to hit PRs and increase strength.
