" How overtraining can spped up results"
By Joe Breen C.F T.
In fitness magazines and on fitness shows we are often told to be aware of the dangers of overtraining. We are told it can lead to injuries, loss of strength and even sickness in excess this can lead to major problems. However it the short team, you can reap several rewards. Let me explain, there are two forms of overtraining, acute and chronic. Acute overtraining is the beginning of overtraining, what this means is you are increasing the volume of your exercises and are pushing your body to the edge. A simple way to explain to this is imagine you are driving a car you step on the gas and push the speed up to a dangerous level. Instead of waiting till you hit something, you step on the brakes in enough time to avoid a accident.
With acute overtraining, we do the same thing we step on the gas for 3 weeks, and then step on the brakes to avoid a accident. How we do this is we do 3 weeks of training with a lot less volume. What this does is when you are driving a car and you hit the brakes you do not end up stopping right away. Instead you gradually slow down, what this does is tricks your body into responding as if it is receiving a higher volume. You still see results,and before your body totally shuts down, you crank up the speed again. With chronic overtraining you have taxed your body beyond it's ability to recover. Overtraining is something that can be used to your advantage use it carefully. For more infomation on great training tips go to www.automaticfitnessplus.com.
