IS YOUR WORKOUT, WORKING OUT FOR YOU?
Chances are, if you’ve been feeling the above mentioned conditions for a while now, despite hitting the gym and sweating it out every day of the week, then you must have also come across the term ‘Overtraining’. If you haven’t yet, then it is about time you got to know about the perils of going to the gym a bit too religiously!
Since early childhood, we have all been conditioned to the idea that the harder you work, the bigger the results. When it comes to our body however, it is possible that in the frenzy of achieving bulky result, we work way too hard on our body to the point where the body starts reversing from the desired results.
Sure, the importance of rest for the body to recover, is well known to all gym goers. If not, then it is time to change your instructor or probably the gym too! However, in this age of social media, where pictures of your six-pack are considered trendier than a six-pack of beer, it is not all too uncommon that one loses sight of fitness over likes.
So, is training hard bad for you then? Absolutely not. Overtraining, on the other hand, can be very bad for your body.
