Fitness Withdrawal Syndrome?
Timeless Fitness Tip
Are you suffering from fitness withdrawal syndrome? Hard training wears you down, making you weaker. It is rest that makes you stronger. What you need is to find a balance between excess training and inadequate rest periods.
The most common symptom of fitness withdrawal syndrome is, understandably, fatigue.
Fitness withdrawal syndrome is most common among athletes, but people who push too hard on a regular exercise regime could fall victim to it, as well.
The best treatment for it is rest. Here are a few more ways to help you beat it:
- Set realistic goals.
- Do not be too hard on yourself if you miss a day. Accept the fact that the best-laid plans can sometimes go awry and focus on getting it done the next day.
- When you are pressed for time, be resourceful. Think of a way you can get in a half-hour walk, a yoga session, or some other exercise during another time of the day.
- A training log is the best method to monitor progress.
- Keep variety in your workout regimes. This is good both mentally and physically. It will help keep you from becoming bored with the same old routine.
- Put yourself and your health first.
- Remember that it is equally important you get enough rest every night. This should be about eight hours of sleep. Pushing too hard and not getting enough rest can make you feel over-tired and worn out. It can even lead to illness.
- Reward yourself (not with food!) whenever you reach on of your realistic goals.
- Allow yourself to feel good about your accomplishments each and every day.
