The Absolute Proven Tip to Avoid Pitfalls in your Training

Training too often and trying to adapt in too many different
ways all at once (power, strength, hypertrophy, endurance) will result
in overtraining.

The Absolute Proven Tip to Avoid Pitfalls in your Training

A smart approach is to use periodization training, Periodization
training is simply a planned training program. You can have weekly,
monthly and yearly plans. It has been shown to be an effective form of
program design. The primary benefit is to allow for maximum levels of
adaption and minimize overtraining.

You can train different forms of strength and control your volume
of training.  With periodization training you can write down your
progress and then reassess your training either on a weekly or monthly
basis. This can help you avoid stagnation, training plateaus,
overtraining and assist you with reacher your goal faster.

Overtraining is like an overload to your system. The body can’t
keep up with the adaptations your trying to meet in your fitness,
bodybuilding or sports training. If your using periodization training
for sports, you will greatly benefit by progressively adapting to
increased levels of volume training and avoid overtraining.

Some symptoms of overtraining are:

Loss of appetite
Headaches
Depression
Decreased
Immunity
Sudden drop in performance
General
Bitchiness
Insomnia
Gradual Increase in Muscle Soreness

By using the a planned program such as periodization training,
Overtraining syndrome is easily preventable. Unfortunately, most
athletes avoid periodaztion training because they rely too much on
their instincts.  By design your instincts tell you to remain
comfortable or ignore the the above symptoms because when you start
reaching a over trained state, your instincts which are your internal
feedback mechanism will not give you an absolute accurate decision to
treat and avoid overtraining.
