A practical guide to staying in tip-top condition
Andrew Hamilton

Successful athletes walk a tightrope. One the one hand, you need to train with sufficient intensity, duration and frequency to stimulate the maximum possible gains in performance.

On the other, train too hard without sufficient recovery and the nightmare of overtraining can strike, scuppering even the best-laid plans.

Overtraining can produce a wide array of destructive symptoms: physical or mental fatigue, weight loss, increased injury or illness, long-term burn out…

Worryingly research shows it’s all too easy to stray across the line from peak condition into overtraining.

The good news is that in recent years scientists have developed a far better understanding of the condition, and have developed a number of practical tools to avoid the “overtraining trap”.

In this special report, we explain how you can minimise your overtraining risks. We introduce valuable and practical tools to help you monitor your training loads and physiological responses, and adapt your training routine to ensure that you stay in tip-top condition.
