250: Overtraining: It's All Relative
As trainers, you see clients of varying levels of physical conditioning. Your clients may also experience limited results due to existing dysfunctions or pain, and their diagnosis has an impact on how they will respond to exercise. If exercise is too stressful, regardless of how limited it may be, it can place your clients in a state of overtraining. In this class, we will look at the components of overtraining and discuss how, in the wrong environment, exercise can have a negative effect on hormone balance, protein synthesis and ultimately, recovery. We will also look at how to design exercise programs for people that are not benefiting from general exercise protocols.
