    How far can I push myself?

    Hey bees, I wanted to ask: how far could I push myself? sometimes I want to do more, but feel like I may be pushing myself to far. I get at least almost all of the sleep I need. I also eat a lot, but a good amount of it is somewhat healthy, or high in nutritional value, and I think I eat at least 30-40 grams of protein a day. I am 16 btw.

    I am mostly asking how much I can push myself to still get positive affect, because I know over working out can cause your body to burn muscle, and I do not want that.

      Most recommendations I’ve seen for protein are .7-1g/lb of body weight, or of lean body weight (for people like myself with a lot of weight to lose). So for starters you could eat more protein.

      As for how far you can can push yourself, I’d say you won’t know until you try. Train smart, dial in your nutrition, avoid injury, reach for the stars. What do you want to achieve?

          Pushing past your limits is a state of mind and doesn't really matter what you eat, though the better your nutrition the better your initially be.

              I'm no expert but from what I understand you think of your limit and then go past it, for example:

              Lets say you can do 20 strict, chest to floor push ups. Do you stop at 20? Or push for 21. If you are still standing go for 22. Rest 5 - 10 minutes then do it again but aim for 23.

              Does that make sense? It's more of a strength endurance example.

                that does, i think of going past your limits as doing more than you think you can, which this pretty much says.

                  I'm not advocating this as a logical piece of advice (it's coming from me!); but "as far as you can go" is to push until you injure yourself. Then, you'll at least know but may pay a higher price for finding out. As I said, not logical advice but it's one answer to your question.

                  To quote BL:-

                  "I’m tired, my heart’s pounding, I can’t go any more and so I say to him, “Bruce if I run any more,” –and we’re still running-”if I run any more I’m liable to have a heart attack and die.” He said, “Then die.” It made me so mad that I went the full five miles. Afterward I went to the shower and then I wanted to talk to him about it. I said, you know, “Why did you say that?” He said, “Because you might as well be dead. Seriously, if you always put limits on what you can do, physical or anything else, it’ll spread over into the rest of your life. It’ll spread into your work, into your morality, into your entire being. There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. If it kills you, it kills you. A man must constantly exceed his level.”

                  But bear in mind, Bruce only made it to his 30s!
