What is Over Training

How do we recognise over training?

I would actually call it under recovering more than over training.

As if you have things in place such as good sleep, regular physio, a supported structured training plan from your coach, and eating to fuel your body, you can actually cope with high levels of training.

So, I tend to look at these things first when someone is showing signs of fatigue.

  • Lack of motivation
  • Low mood
  • Poor sleep
  • Lower energy levels
  • Muscle Soreness
  • Resting Heart rate increased
  • Anxiety

Being in tune with your body, your mind and your attitude is part of training. Resting, recovery, food, sleep and mindset is all part of being an athlete. So what if you aren’t an athlete but you want to train most days?

Its definitely possible with the above practices in place still. On our online health fitness and wellbeing programme, no session is repeated. There is structure to how we schedule the sessions. So for instance, we wouldn’t programme legs 2 days in a row.

This is perfect for you if you train at home or in the gym, as all you need to do is follow the plan and not worry about muscle rotation, overload etc. Its all done for you. This gives you peace of mind in your training, plus more time to focus on your nutrition, rest and enjoying life!!
