Abstract :

Over the last decade or so, over-training has received a lot of attention and controversy. The truth is it is not necessary to push our bodies to the brink of exhaustion to get the results we seek. Pushing our bodies too hard is actually quite dangerous, causing joint and soft tissue damage, chemical imbalances, and adrenaline dumps which can lead to PTSD, and more. About 60% of all injuries in general fitness or athletic activity can be prevented, with over-training being the main culprit. Those who believe they are Ô??injury-proneÔ?? are misled and are often left to believe there is no hope. We will discuss what qualifies as over-training, how to combat over-training, and the importance of recovery. We will dive deep into the physiology of the body to finally answer these questions once and for all. Because letÔ??s face it, whatÔ??s the point of having a great looking body if youÔ??re in pain and injured all the time?
