5 Signs You're Overtraining

Believe it or not, exercise can be unhealthy if overdone. It’s known as overtraining.

When we exercise, we push our body, and this is normal. The exertion stimulates our muscles and cardiovascular system, which makes us fitter. But when we increase the frequency of our training, or up the intensity level, our bodies struggle to recover which can bring progress to a standstill, or even send it backwards.

Everyone is different so there’s no exact formula for how much exercise is the right amount. How quickly your body recovers is affected by experience, intensity, how often you train, nutrition, sleep and other lifestyle factors. But there are a few tell-tale signs it might be time to pull it back a little.

metabolism

Whether it’s your heart beating, nerves communicating or muscles pumping – your metabolism works 24/7 and is the source of your energy.

QUALITY VS. QUANTITY

For an ideal sleep you need to go through several stages. Two of these phases are particularly important: Deep sleep is the most restorative stage of sleep when the body repairs itself, and studies suggest the most damaging effects of sleep deprivation are from inadequate deep sleep.

Extreme Workout Fatigue and Dry Eyes

Many people worldwide suffer from the condition called dry eyes. It is a syndrome which occurs when the eyes do not produce enough tears or simply when the tears evaporate too fast. This usually causes the eyes to dry out completely and become swollen, irritated and that is the moment when the discomfort hits, followed by pain and occasional blurry vision. It is like something is stuck in your eye all the time, every day. If you are a person who enjoys running or cycling, this syndrome can cause severe problems for you.

The rep squats experience

20-rep squats – or ‘widowmakers’, as they’re sometimes known – are one of the more intense experiences you can have inside a gym. In case you’re unfamiliar, the protocol goes like this:

1. Load a weight that you should only be able to get for about 10 proper reps onto a barbell.
2. Take it out of the rack.
3. Don’t put it back until you’ve done 20 reps.

‘Resting’, albeit with the bar on your back, is fine, and necessary.

rocco

A little over a year ago I felt the need to shake things up in my life. The monotony of my everyday routine was really dragging me down.

I decided to get re-involved with martial arts, something I remember enjoying as a kid. After my first class I quickly realized that I found what I had been looking for.

dina

I moved to Astoria about a year and a half ago [October 2014] after just getting married. I had been working in a job that gave me no time to breathe, let alone work out. I had gotten to my highest weight - 152lbs, which is a lot being that I’m only 5' tall. I was so ashamed for letting myself get to that point.
