Does overtraining affect more than just

Does overtraining affect more than just your body?

New research suggests that pushing our bodies too far can affect decision-making as well. After many weeks of overtraining, athletes in the study were likely to choose instant gratification instead of long-term success.

Is overtraining affecting your cognitive function?
Are you making more impulsive choices based on training fatigue?
Maybe it’s time to take a break.

Physical and mental fatigue often come hand in hand, so remember to take care of your body and mind.

Planning to work out this weekend?

We want to know how you measure a successful workout.

If you feel that physical activity requires a decent amount of sweat to be successful, think again.

Effectiveness does not always correlate with amount of sweat. Think about long runs in winter – they aren’t necessarily as sweaty as summer ones, so does that mean your workout wasn’t as fulfilling?

How about gym workouts? If your goal is to become stronger through weight lifting, sweat may not be a byproduct of that workout.

Judging workout effectiveness is a matter of results – not the amount of sweat on your t-shirt. Need help tracking your progress? Ask us for recommendations!
