avi changes as i do
As plenty of members have already stated, overtraining is real. This isn't just my "opinion"...its a proven fact that has been established for decades so what someone may "believe" has zero relevance here:
A Review of Overtraining Syndrome?Recognizing the Signs and Symptoms
Over training syndrome (OTS) is a recognized condition and one of the main reasons why practically every single elite athlete, including strength athletes, have periodized programmes - to avoid overtraining and have planned periods of overreaching where necessary.
As for the difference between overtraining & overreaching, it comes down to the time period.
Overtraining is the result of high intensity and/or high volume training over a sustained period of time. Overreaching is training at a high intensity and/or volume for a short period of time (a few weeks at most) and can actually accelerate muscle growth when planned accordingly.
That's what I like about you Rip...u always bring the FACTS!! Lol. And then break it down so anyone can understand.
Good stuff man! Thanks!!
