Are You Overtraining? Tips to Recover from Overtraining

I previously blogged about the signs of overtraining.

In this blog post we will talk about tips to help recover from overtraining that can help get you back on track!

  • Get some rest. Overtraining is caused by excessive training and beyond fatiguing the muscles. The first thing you’ll want to do is to back down and give your body the rest it needs!
  • Reduce the volume or intensity of your training. When you workout maybe you reduce a set or so in order to taper off a bit to get back on track. Maybe limit your cardio to 30 minutes instead of 45 minutes while you get things in order.
  • Evaluate and adjust your calorie intake. Sometimes when we overtraining we also under eat. Calories burned should be replaced by good nutrition. I’d recommend tracking your eating and adjusting appropriately. Nutrition will aid in recovery.
  • Consider split training. Instead of working out everything all at once all the time consider focusing on certain muscle groups in each workout. That way you are working out certain muscles while other muscles are allowed to recover.

I hope this helps!  Thanks for reading!
