High  Frequency
part 1 of 2
There is a certain level of physique development where the physiology 'peaks'. Its called many names: 'over reaching' monotone or over training. This happens when there is no recovery from the demands of physical stress. The common side effects are chronic soreness lasting more than 72 hours, moodiness, chronic respiratory irritations/infection, poor healing time, decreased sleep cycles and a decrease power output in your training. Since I have been involved with training high level athletes for over 25 years I see it more and more. The new 'victims' are male and female athletes from 11 years of age: ALL levels and sports.  We have clients that like to train more than 5 times a week; which does NOT include our classes or our signature personal training!

In my next blog I will tell you how to remedy the signs and symptoms of over training and how to prevent it from happening.
