Some Overtraining Facts

Overtraining steps out as one of the biggest problems a bodybuilder can meat. It appears when there is an imbalance noticed between your ability to properly adapt to stress that hits your body. Due to overtraining the bodybuilder ends up with losing strength and size, not to mention having an increased illness risk.

Overtraining symptoms:
  • muscle strength and size decrease
  • an increased pulse rate when waking up
  • an increased blood pressure in the morning
  • recovery time that is too long after a regular workout
  • aches in your muscles and joints
  • tiredness, headaches, insomnia, injury and hand tremors
  • loss of appetite
How does Overtraining Appear?

After we go through an intense workout our body will pump out cortisol. This is the substance that is responsible for breaking down protein. The longer our workout is the more the amount of cortisol that will appear and the more the quantity of protein that ends up destroyed. If we train too much we end up overtraining because the body is forced to be weaker. Different body parts can end up losing structural integrity due to protein loss.

Make sure that you avoid overtraining. A good rule of thumb is to take 2-3 days off from your training routine whenever you feel overtrained.
