What are The Consequences of Overtraining???

Working at levels greater than what the body capacity to tolerate is called overtraining. Players generally do overtraining before competition with the illusion that reduction in training before competition will diminish their performance and hence they resist themselves from getting enough rest.

Overtraining can result in severe detrimental side effects like sleep loss, fatigue, increased risk of illness, mood swings, muscle soreness and loss of appetite and weight. The reason for this cascade of problems is that overtraining adversely impact the energy intake and thus results in poor nutrition status resulting in nutrient deficiencies. These deficiencies of nutrient will interfere with the usual metabolic pathway which utilizes energy and therefore hampering competitive performance.

Overtraining also contribute to GI distress that disturbs normal bowel habits and triggers symptoms like nausea, vomiting, cramping, chest pain, diarrhea and esophageal reflux. Overtraining will also speed up the body‘s glucose uptake and thus lowers body’s blood sugar levels causing both mental and muscular exhaustion. Therefore, it’s important to realize that if physical activity will increase, the body’s fuel requirement will also increase to make it to the cell that has the capacity to burn it to provide energy and hence increase the performance.

Therefore, it’s important to realize that if physical activity will increase, the body’s fuel requirement will also increase to make it to the cell that has the capacity to burn it to provide energy and hence increase the performance. It is therefore important that, for maintaining optimal performance it is essential to ensure that food and fluid intake is adequate. To achieve this one must adhere to proper scheduling of food and fluid intake.

So to ensure complete bowel movement get up early to eat breakfast before the start time and also refuel immediately after the practice session. As a rule of thumb players should also practice consuming fluids frequently even if there is no thirst so as to decrease the chances of dehydration which results from sweat losses.

To avoid inadequate or excess intake, pre and post active body weights are a good way to regulate the fluid requirement. The best practice is to capitalize every available opportunity to ensure that the player has enough food to continue the present training and also enough energy should be stored for next day’s activity.
