Over-training vs. Under-recovering
Posted by: breanne
At MRI we offer private training, group fitness training, athletic functional training, and endurance event based training. Among all these specialized services, the common denominator in almost all cases is over-training and/or under-recovering.
This brings me to the topic of this post: What’s the difference between over-training and under-recovering?
The answer, there is no difference, they mean exactly the same thing- and that’s my point. If you are experiencing symptoms like loss of appetite, sore joints/muscles, irritability, body temperature irregularities, and restless sleep, then there is a good chance you are over-training and under-recovered.
So now the question is, how can you recuperate? Simply cut back on intensity and frequency of workouts, get more sleep, increase hydration, keep your nutrients up, and most importantly… you guessed it- lower your stress!
My point is to get you to improve your fitness and conditioning workout performance without becoming too over-trained and/or under-recovered. Otherwise, the outcome of all your effort will be heavily compromised. Good Luck!
