For the majority of the people in this world, getting motivated to exercise or even beginning to exercise is difficult. But then there are a few of us who actually do the opposite of this… We exercise too much – we go too hard, too often.
While moving your body and being physically active every day (or most days) is great, like everything else in life, too much of a good thing is actually a bad thing.
It can be really hard to know where that line is sometimes – between good movement, wanting to challenge ourselves and progress – and going too far.
Respecting your limitations means meeting yourself where you are at progressing toward your goal in a safe, body respecting way. It means knowing what you are capable of, what injuries or mobility constraints you have, and having a clear vision of where you want to go with your fitness and why, and then taking appropriate action to get there.
What you’ll learn by listening:
- The principles of progressive overload and rest/recovery and how they apply to making gains while avoiding overtraining or injury
- How to know that you’re exercising in a safe ways
- The warning signs of overtraining
- The concept of body respect and how to meet yourself where you’re at in your movement practice.
