How do you know your overtraining?
1. Extended muscle soreness
It’s normal to have sore muscles for a day or two after a workout. But if you’re still sore past the 72-hour mark, be sure to schedule a break and rest. This type of extended soreness is a sign your muscles aren’t recovering, which negatively impacts on your muscle-building efforts. You should be able to get in a gym session in and out in 45 to 65 minutes max.
2. Can't sleep even though you're wiping yourself out at the gym? It's most likely a result of a combination of nervous system and or hormonal system overload. Focus more on getting your 10p.m. to 2a.m. sleep because this is the part of your sleeping pattern where physical restoration occurs. Your body grows while resting, not training, I can't stress that enough to my clients, eat a lot of clean food and take a week off training all together.
Exercise is typically good for your mental health but if you’re overtraining, it could have the opposite effect, you start to get irritable and mad over every little thing . People who overtrain tend to view exercise as something it’s not, a challenge, a conquest, or a space-filler in your schedule. That's not all, you might also suffer from body image issues and believe “the more you train, the better you'll look.” To avoid overtraining, it’s important to know the real motives behind training. Set realistic short and long-term goals, create a plan, and stick to it.
