Symptoms of Overtraining


We have all heard about the dangers of overtraining, but not everyone knows the early warning signs and how to avoid it.  At times an intense week of training can push your body into the stage before overtraining, called overreaching.  The symptoms of overreaching closely parallel those of overtraining, but it takes much longer to recover if you become overtrained.  It is alright to overreach sometimes if you never cross the fine line between that and overtraining.  The key is to never let yourself get to that point, and to pay attention to these 12 signs.

  1. Altered resting heart rate
  2. Insatiable thirst
  3. Extended muscle soreness
  4. Insomnia
  5. Depression
  6. Personality changes
  7. Frequent sickness
  8. Loss of concentration
  9. Increased injury
  10. Decreased motivation
  11. Lowered self-esteem
  12. Halted progress
