Happy almost weekend!! I would like to start today to share a comment I got from reader
some signs of overtraining
- Mild leg soreness, general aches and pains
- Decreased appetite
- Pain in muscles and joints
- Sudden drop in performance
Let me know if you have any questions and again thank you for your comments! I <3 you all!!
Tuesday evening I took a low heat (which was about 85 degrees-yeah not really low heat!) yoga class. It was so hard! I haven't done yoga in so long and this was a reminder that I should do it more often. I was next to quite a veteran yogi, who was doing the headstands and crow and all these crazy and amazing moves, that I could barely even begin to fathom doing! I hope to get more into it becuase I know it is great for my muscles and flexibility
looove the blog!! I was wondering if you could give me some insight on a possible hamstring strain that I think I have. I have not been to the dr’s but when I stretch my left leg, the part of the muscle that meets the base of my butt hurts. I usually stretch atleast twice a day so Im thinking it may be from not warming up enough. It does not hurt while ellipticaling, just stretching. I recently cut out a ton of cardio due to too much weight loss and was focusing much more on ST to gain weight, especially lower body for muscle mass.
I know you have a very busy life, but was wondering what you think I should do? I know rest, but it’s so hard for me to do so – I’m a very active person and am used to doing activity everyday.
Thank you so much for your help, I really appreciate it!
Thanks so much for the question! I would be happy to try to help out with this although you will probably not like my response! I will tell you that rest in this situation is the best remedy! Have you thought about walking, so as not to pull those muscles or work them too hard? Also active stretching could helop loosen those muscles up before your elliptical session. Active stretching is stretching that involves movement.You will move parts of your body and gradually increasing reach, speed of movement, or both. HERE is a video of some active stretches you could do at the gym! What did your Dr. say when you saw him/her? Do you remember doing something that could have caused this strain? Please email me at email@example.com so I can awner any further questions! Have a great day!
