The days where bootcamp instructors screamed for more and more.
Basically the idea of torture and exercise in the same sentence do not exist anymore.
It was very easy to know in those days if you were exercising too much or out of your limits.
You basically felt sick.
Other ways to know if you have done too much are :
- Constant body pains that never go away, denoting extreme muscle inflammation;
As you can see, over-training is not a good thing.
Exercise should only be used under the guidance of a professional so we can apply proper rest between sessions and also check if you are under or over-training.
The rest is so important. VERY, VERY ,VERY important.
One can not keep pushing harder and harder at training without severe side effects.
So like anything in life moderation is key !
Long gone are the days of vomiting during a training session.
