If your goal is to train harder and smarter than the day before, you will need to make sure your body has adapted and recovered from the stressors placed on it from the previous days. Because without proper recovery, you’re stuck with an uphill battle that over time can lead to injury, fatigue, overtraining and/or lack of motivation.

Scott can be best described as a "quiet achiever".
