We all know that exercise is a great way to beat stress, lose weight and boost your confidence, but there is such a thing as too much of a good thing – I’m a great example of this. I love being active and hate rest, and have suffered with many injuries because of this. It’s only the last few years that I’ve learnt the importance of rest and that adequate rest and recovery is absolutely essential if you want to see results from your workouts.
There are many signs that show you are overdoing it. Here are some things to look out for:
If any of these sounds like you, then take a week off training to recharge your batteries. You don’t need to stop moving altogether but why not do things you enjoy like walking, dancing or hitting the dry ski slopes? Moderation is definitely the key to building fitness and sometimes less really is more. Listen to your body and choose your activities wisely and I can almost guarantee, after a week off, you will itching to get back into your usual exercise routine and your results will be better than ever.
The bottom line is to remember to schedule in your weekly rest days and take a week’s break every six to eight weeks. Your body and mind will thank you for it!
