TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING?

Over-training is the result of doing too much of a good thing….

Many people have the  idea that ‘if three sets is good for my biceps, five set should be great.’ THIS is when you will experience  no growth in either size or strength.
This is because the muscles were broken down excessively and repeatedly, without being given proper rest time.

Signs of Over-training
Fatigue
Extreme Soreness
Loss of Strength
Digression in Strength

How do I Avoid Over-training?
Limit overall SETS  (not reps) to no more than 10 for each body part.
Train each body part no more than 1-2X weekly
Get plenty of sleep.
Allow for Downtime–have at least ONE day of with NO exercise.

Hope this helps!
Luv & Muscles,  Lisa
