We all know that exercise has wonderful benefits , like burning calories, increasing energy levels, and boosting your mood. But just like anything else in life, moderation is key. Too much exercise or at too intense of a level, can leave you drained, and worse, at risk of injury. Overtraining occurs when a person partakes in too much physical training with too little rest and recovery after hard workouts. The resulting stress placed on the muscles, ts and bones causes fatigue and soreness that ultimately affects performance. While over-training syndrome most often applies to serious athletes, that doesn't mean that recreational athletes or weekend warriors are free from the effects of pushing the body too hard.
Here are a few physical symptoms and lifestyle patterns to be aware of that may be s you're going too hard in the gym. Being sore after a workout can be a good feeling you put those muscles to work! As a fitness coach, I often see clients trying to do too much too fast. Research has shown that increasing the intensity of a workout in small increments is better for your body overall. For weights, try going up 2. Gradually increasing intensity in one area before focusing on another will help you get stronger and faster, without putting your body through too much, too soon.
If a muscle group or t on one side of your body is sore after a workout, but not the other, it may be a that you overworked a body part and may need additional healing and recovery time. If you have single-sided pain, you're also healing and recovering, he adds, but you should allow extra time to heal and it may be worthwhile to seek additional help to hasten this process.
Did you not run 26 miles with that side as well? The injury is likely the imbalance that a biomechanics specialist can diagnose and correct. Choosing a workout over time your family, work obligations, or social outings on a consistent basis are s that you may be hyper-focused on exercise. This is not always a bad thing, but if you find yourself becoming obsessed with scheduling that next workout, you may be headed towards an unhealthy addiction. Many of my clients bend over backwards to make sure they follow a workout program exactly, only to discover that over the course of a few months they get burned out, sick of dedicating all of their time to exercise, and decide to throw in the towel.
This all or nothing mentality — either all in or all out — is setting yourself up for failure. Rest days are an important part of every training plan! On the opposite end of the spectrum, viewing exercise as a last priority can cause you to push too hard when you do finally get in a workout. Our minute HIIT workout is a great way to get a big bang for your exercise buck without overdoing it.
If you find yourself dreading workouts, take a step back and ask yourself why. Are you pushing yourself so hard that they aren't enjoyable? Or is it the activity itself that doesn't excite you? The legs become strong but also very tight and over time this le to pains and strains because the runner, most of the time, does not spend the appropriate time that is needed to stretch the muscles that are pounding the pavement.
Over time the muscles become so tight that they begin to stress the ts. This type of over-training presents itself as knee pain, plantar fasciitis or back pain. This mistake can be made with any type of exercise. People that only pursue yoga and Pilates have great flexibility, but often are not developing upper body strength, which over time can present itself as pain in the back and shoulders , says Torres.
The solution here is simple: diversify your workout routine. If you recognize some of these s in yourself, take a step back and pull out your calendar. Depending on how rigorous your workouts are you can choose to have one or two complete rest days, or choose active recovery days where you get in some low-intensity movement like walking , biking or swimming.
