How much is too much exercise?
Some symptoms of overtraining are obvious, others not so much. Many women (myself included) mistake overtraining symptoms as a result of other things or ignore them all together thinking it’s “normal.”
The most common symptoms of overtraining include:
- weight gain, especially around midsection
- moodiness or irritability
- change in the menstrual cycle
- hair loss
- numbness or tingling in the hands or feet
- increase in perceived difficulty of workouts
- reduced motivation
- repeated injuries, body aches, and pains
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms and exercise regularly without many rest days, it’s possible that you’re experiencing overtraining syndrome.
In this episode, I share my experience with overtraining and how I reversed it and moved on from it.
For me, it came down to assessing my current workout (and nutrition) routine as well as taking a honest look at my lifestyle and eliminating as much stress as possible.
