What does the former world-class marathon runner, Ironman triathlete, author, and blogger, Mark Sisson, say about exercise?

At the extreme – such as with the overtrained marathon runner or ironman triathlete – a commitment to fitness can actually accelerate the aging process and elevate the risk of heart disease. Our bodies are simply not adapted to benefit from chronic aerobic exercise at intense or even mildly uncomfortable heart rates nor to slog through exhausting circuits of resistance machines several days a week.
