🔹 What is “enough” – no, this is not an existential question that people have been trying to figure out for centuries. It is, however related to a person’s capacity to recover and the amount of training they actually do.
🔹 A professional athlete trains like a professional athlete. Lots of training, lots of sleep, lots of good food and lots of therapeutic activities. An average person who starts training like a pro but falls short on the recovery part, is doomed to fail
🔹 Over training is a term that gets thrown around a lot. What it is, is simply too much training and not enough recovery
🔹 Other problems can arise from a lack of recovery like hormonal issues and injuries etc. Your body needs time to adapt and get stronger.
🔹 If you are experiencing any of the symptoms above, take a look at your training volume compared to the amount of time you sleep and how much you eat. You don’t want to be putting in all of that work for nothing!
