    Most people who get overtraining symptoms are people who either train really stupidly and/or do not take recovery seriously. That means getting enough sleep, food, rest and recovery sessions, stress reduction etc. If you can not do these things don't go abd train like.someone who can. Work and family life is a stressor so you learn to deal with stress better to accommodate these things. Most athletes don't have these stresses and the good ones manage these stresses well (or learn too).

    Food wise people seem to do either eat too much or eat too little. Sadly the average trainee goes towards the two little side of things and can not recover properly because of it.

    You will always get a crazy trainee who maxes out his bench press 4 times a week and then overtrains but that is rare. In short most people under-recover not over-train.

    What are the effects of overtraining?
    Be aware that it can be a range of things.

    Cardio or Weight Training: Which is worse?
    For someone wanting to increase muscle tissue; cardio.
    For someone who's goal it is to maximize respitory and circulative health; weight training.

    What are some of the symptoms that you have over trained?
    Over the years? Mainly;
    Loss of strength
    Lack of interest


    how can you prevent overtraining?
    I control my symptoms by controlling the amount or duration of cardio.
    Eating or sleeping my way out of overtrained state was nebulas at best.

    Overtraining is massively overrated. Most people will never train hard enough to have to worry about overtraining.
