Are you overtraining? Part 3.
Below are several key indicators that you might be overtraining.
- Increased perceived effort during workouts.
- Excessive fatigue
- Decreased performance
- Loss of appetite
- Agitation & moodiness
- Insomnia or restless sleep
- Chronic or nagging injuries
- Metabolic imbalances
- Stress and/or depression
Today is day three of our look into overtraining Syndrome. If you missed either of the first two days you can find them HERE!
Decreased performance is up next!
I believe this is one of the easiest ones to pick up on to determine if you need to take a day off or maybe just not push it as hard in the gym (whaaat?!?).
We track a lot of data at Pick It Up, or at least we encourage you all to do so. It helps us as coaches steer you in the right direction when making decisions for workouts and it can show you all the progress you are making.
So how are those numbers looking? Are they heading in the right direction? We don’t want anyone to get it twisted. We aren’t saying that every day in the gym you should be setting new PRs.
If your volume and/or intensity has been on a steady incline but you now find yourself stalling out and no longer improving it might be time to develop a new game plan for your training days.
If you need help setting new goals please reach out to us. I would love to sit down with you and help you set some new goals.
