Highly sensitive bodies have a harder time when it comes to sport, for though the individual would like to compete at a higher level, that fact their body is more highly sensitive makes it that much harder.
And the way that it makes it harder is because:
Can’t do the workload that others do
Need more Rest
Start slow and build up for longer
Have to manage oneself better
Body will require more nutrients (ie:minerals)
