The body is like an engine. If your program design is set for power output your in for inevitable and earlier repairs (injury.disease.sickness). What happens when you press the pedal to the floor in your vehicle. Rpm’s go up. You burn fuel at a quicker rate. You increase torque on the frame. You cause the transmission stress and ultimately shorten the life-span of the engine.

Would it be folly to apply this to your body?

If your programing has; max weight this. As many times that. As long and fast/far as you can travel. Every Single Time you train… Find a new coach/program. You will only breakdown or wreck. It is the one possible outcome with this approach (Your telomeres will thank you).
Note: some conditioning (past anaerobic threshold) is essential, but it is not the basis of lasting functionality.
