Are you Guilty of Over-Training?

I met my friend Kristen at Highbar CrossFit last night for an evening workout. It was tough, hot and humid but awesome! I’m sore as all get out this AM which is always a good sign.

warmup

200m jog
10 squats
4 Sampson Stretch
10 push ups
4 Instep Lunges
10 squats

strength
bench press
warmup to 100#
5×5

WOD
4 RFT
200m run
10 burpees
25 Double Unders
Time: 12:53

This one was a breathing nightmare! Everyone knows how much I love Burpees!! And then add a run and some Double Unders. These guys want to kill me. I did not do as well as I wanted to but the point is that I got my cardio up.

Do you know about Adrenal Failure? I read this post this morning: Adrenal Fatigue Mistakes and wanted to just share it because although I have never actually been bed ridden from it, I definitely have felt the effects of overtraining. Here are some signs that you are indeed over-training. Look them over and see if you fit the profile and if you do — back off, take a rest. You will be surprised at how great you feel after taking a few days off and really resting your body. I know as much as I hated taking a week off — I came back feeling stronger and mentally more in tune with my goals.

 

Have an awesome day and in the words of Drake:
