The Follies of Overtraining

by | 27th Jul 2020

YOU’VE JUST GOT done with another stressful day at the office and you’re heading to the gym. You’re tired—physically and mentally. You’re achy, and that head cold doesn’t see to be improving. You’d rather be anywhere on earth but the gym, but you’re afraid skipping of out on your routine, thinking that you’ll lose your hard-earned gains if you give the gym a miss. You decide to struggle on through.

Does this scenario sound familiar to you?

If it does, you should start listening to your body and stop making the medicine worse than the disease. If you’re working out, but feeling sore and struggling to fend off colds, there’s a good chance that you’re over-training and you need more recovery time—specifically, that you need more sleep.
