EP36: How to heal from overtraining Carrots 'N' Cake Podcast

    • Nutrition

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: ⁠⁠
⁠⁠
▪️insomnia ⁠⁠
▪️fatigue⁠⁠
▪️headaches⁠⁠
▪️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.
