How much is too much exercise? Think you might be overtraining but not sure what to do?

⁠⁠
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.
