Most people know that exercise is a great way to relieve stress. What rarely gets attention is the fact that reducing stress levels can actually improve exercise performance and recovery.

The immediate results are better performance, increases in strength and less body fat. This is what is known as an “acute stress response” – a specific stimulus that lasts for a temporary period. Acute stressors can be very healthy, and are necessary for any type of growth.
