Let’s talk about the General Adaptation Syndrome(GAS) and overtraining
Starting with what the GAS and it’s stages. GAS has three stages the Alarm Reaction, Resistance, and Exhaustion.
Alarm is the initial symptoms your body experiences under stress or the “fight or flight.” Resistance training creates stress on the body and the release of hormones including cortisol, adrenaline and noradrenaline to provide instant energy.
Resistance and super compensation stage is the adaptation stage where your body is making adjustments to deal with the consistent stress and the recovery process to bring the body to a level that exceeds the baseline for increased performance
Now to exhaustion/overtraining which is the insufficient amount of recovery leading to decreased performance
Exhaustion can be evident through
•elevated resting heart rate
•irritability •loss of motivation
•insomnia •persistent muscle soreness •increased incidents of injuries
And so on.
So overall if your realizing you maybe experiencing these symptoms it could be precursors of overtraining. All in all evaluate your program or recovery and make healthy adjustments so your training can continue such as-
•reducing the volume
•split training(different muscles on different days)
Told you it was long😉
Quiero creer que las personas llegan a mi vida para enseñarme algo, para mostrarme el camino por el que debo seguir, o incluso el camino que no debo tomar; y que, aunque me cueste trabajo entenderlo, hay veces que debo dejarlas ir, por qué todo en esta vida es perfecto, no puedo luchar contra eso, y quien se deba quedar lo hará, y quien no, ni adiós dirá. #chipinque#monterrey#mexico#love#happiness#staystrong

Meanwhile, standing atop the Incan ruins of Pisac, gazing at the sight of the Andean mountains sinking down into the valleys... centuries-old farmland cut neatly into quarters belonging to individual families... the breeze in my hair and the sun in my face... it all calls for a view that is absolutely unreal! ⛰
Aquele momento que você descobre onde é o paraíso! Como fui feliz nesse dia, consigo lembrar de cada cheiro, cada situação, cada pequeno detalhe ❤️ o que se leva da vida é a vida que se leva!
