When we exercise above the levels that the body is adapted, it causes various “attacks” to the body, such as micro muscle injury, breakdown of energy reserves and other factors. The body in the post exercise, search replace and fix what caused the exercise. But the body, in a move to keep their survival, not only restores what was lost and depleted, and increases the levels we had before exercise. This is a body of the precautionary approach, which is most likely a remnant of the time of the caves, where the main task was to keep life under the agents that put at risk.

Quite simply, this is how it is the supercompensation theory works and that is how the training can increase the physiological and metabolic levels and promote an increasing resistance.
