1. Training Diary. Keeping a detailed diary may help in the prevention of overtraining and will aid your return to sport if you’ve already slipped into the realms of UPS.
2. Heart Rate. Your resting heartrate can be an indicator of recovery status. Get to know what your resting heart rate is, and measure it each morning before you get out of bed.
3. Training Heart Rate. The secret to making sure you never suffer from UPS again could well be: Monitoring your training heart rate. If doing repeated bouts of too much high intensity, high volume training is part of the reason you’re overtrained, then it makes sense to monitor this aspect of your training in future.
4. Nutrition. Depletion of carbohydrate stores is clearly linked with a rise in the stress hormone cortisol, thereby reducing immune function and the body’s ability to fight infection.
5. Think smarter, not harder. UPS is, on the whole, largely preventable: An understanding of where your training ‘threshold’ lies (given your current life stressors) is, without doubt, the key to avoiding this debilitating condition.

1. You Frequently Fall Ill. Falling ill is the exact opposite of why we workout. Most of us workout to lead a healthy lifestyle. Overtraining affects our nervous system in a negative way.
2. Inability to Sleep. Insomnia is one of the biggest signs you’re overtraining. Sleep is when your body recovers. You know there is some problem when you can’t fall asleep even after an exhausting workout session.
3. Increased Injuries and Joint Pains. When you overtrain, your body doesn’t get enough time to recuperate between workouts meaning that at some point you begin training in a weakened state.
4. Feel Tired and Sluggish Throughout The Day. If you’re a weightlifter and are overtrained, your parasympathetic nervous system becomes overly stimulated, leading to a decrease in testosterone, an increase in cortisol, a crushing fatigue (mental and physical), and a stubborn tendency to hang onto body fat.
5. Loss of Motivation and Depression. If you live, breathe, and sleep the gym life, then suddenly become disinterested, you’re probably overexerting yourself.
6. No Major Muscle Gain. The bro scientists in your gym might be correct after all. If your gains have halted, chances are you’re overtraining. Overtraining leaves your body in a state where it does not get enough time to recover after workouts.
