Replying to LO12047 --

In sports, where the term cross-training comes from, there is a lot of
talk about the need for rest in order to get stronger. Training in
another sport from your primary sport allows you to keep generally active,
but to rest specific muscles for the primary sport. Some people are
saying that there isn't any such thing as over-training, only
under-resting. A lot of people don't go as hard as they should, but also
don't lay off. So you could add to your list that cross-training lets
high-producing specialists get better, by resting them in their specialty.
I don't know if that works in business, but that's an idea that wasn't on
your list.
