Seven Signs You May Be Exercising Too Much
When you perform high intensity training, it's very important to carefully consider the frequency of your sessions to give your body enough time to recover in between. If you don't, the exercise can potentially do more harm than good. To maximize your workout efforts, you'll want to strive for that sweet spot where you're pushing hard enough to challenge your body at your current level of fitness, while allowing your body to recuperate in between.
Again, if you're doing high intensity interval exercises, it's NOT recommended to do them more than three times a week. I currently perform high intensity training including interval training twice a week and some high intensity weights once a week. If you're unsure whether you may be pushing yourself too hard, the following seven symptoms may signal that you need to cut back a bit and allow your body to recover between sessions:
1. Exercise leaves you exhausted instead of energized
2. You get sick easily (or it takes forever to get over a cold)
3. You have the blues
4. You're unable to sleep or you can't seem to get enough sleep
5. You have ''heavy'' legs
6. You have a short fuse
7. You're regularly sore for days at a time
