Overtraining – Say What Now?

Recently, there’s no time to take pics at the gym because I’m too busy getting the grind on. Except, am I grinding a little bit too hard? Overtraining, as much as we all hate to see it, is very much a thing. Progress takes time and dedication, and you (or I) won’t see change in a day. Busting your ass at the gym for 3 hours a day isn’t as effective as you think. Overtraining can actually cause halted progress . According to Muscle Model champion and transformation trainer Micah LaCerte, “When you’re overtraining, your body is going in the opposite direction of growth, because your muscles are torn and all you’re doing is re-tearing them again“. Easy enough to understand, right? So, get your grind on – but take it easy sometimes too. Training is good for your body, but there are alternatives to consistently putting tremendous stress on your body – like implementing more low intensity exercises into your routine.
