TRAINING TIPS

  • BY BRENDON BISHOP

ELEVATED RESTING HEART RATE

One of the few signs of overtraining that is objectively measurable is an above-normal resting heart rate in the morning upon waking. This is the result of an increased metabolic rate as your body tries to meet the excessive demands of your training. No amount of oxygen or nutrients is enough to outrun the debt created from the overtraining.

IGNORE AT YOUR PERIL

One additional important observation: Overtraining can lead to chronic inflammation in the body. This will make your joints hurt as everything gets irritated and make life and moving in general an unpleasant experience. However, it can also harm your brain, leading to an elevated risk of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Your brain can’t feel pain, so when you sprain your brain you’ll be unaware of the damage that is occurring.

OVERREACTION TO UNDERTRAINING

Undertraining is a huge problem, as evidenced by the increasing incidence of obesity, but for those who do exercise regularly, more isn’t always better. Enough is better. Things have gotten so out of hand that some people celebrate popped and bleeding calluses or vomiting from an intense workout. These occurrences are never good when it comes to exercise and a sure sign that someone doesn’t know what they are doing.
