I had a kettlebell circuit planned for today, but to be honest, I was too damn sore from yesterday’s workout! The goal is to work up to a high volume of work for a three day stretch like I will be during the RKC cert. It got me thinking about something: How much is too much? Just how quickly do you actually overtrain? And is there a risk of injury involved?
My (unscientific) opinion is that a couple days in a row of hitting the same body part every once in a while isn’t going to kill you. It might even be a good change. But on an ongoing basis, it’s obviously a bad idea. And generally, if your body is telling you ‘no’ – don’t work out! What do you think? http://thefitnessmonster.com
