Over training? It’s more serious than you think…

M&K Crown Overtraining more serious than you think mkcrown.com

Overtraining is a physical, behavioral, and maybe even
an emotional condition that occurs when the volume
and intensity of your exercise exceeds your
recovery capacity.

Hint #1:
You stop making progress.

And in some cases, you can even begin to lose
strength and fitness.

Here are some signs that you might
be overtraining:

  1. Persistent muscle soreness: 
    If your muscles are constantly sore and you’re
    not giving them time to recover, it could be a
    sign of overtraining.
  2. Elevated resting heart rate: 
    An increased heart rate upon waking can be a
    sign your body is in overdrive.
  3. Increased susceptibility to infections: 
    Overtraining can weaken your immune
    system, making you more prone to
  4. Increased injuries:
    If you’re getting injured more often, it could
    be a sign that your body isn’t getting enough
    time to recover.
  5. Decreased performance: 
    Despite intense training, you may see your
    performance decline.
  6. Insomnia or disturbed sleep patterns:
    Overtraining can interfere with your sleep cycle,
    making it hard for you to get quality sleep.
  7. Loss of appetite:
    Overtraining can also affect your appetite
    and eating habits.
  8. Mood changes:
    You may experience mood swings, high levels
    of stress, depression, or lack of concentration.

And remember…

Everyone’s body responds differently to
exercise, and what may be too much for
one person might be fine for another.


It’s important to listen to your body and give
it enough time to rest and recover. If you suspect
you’re overtraining, consider seeking advice from
a fitness professional or a healthcare provider.
