11 Ways to Avoid Overtraining, Fatigue, Exhaustion, Injuries and Poor Athletic Performance

Forest Griffin Knee Surgery Why are so many athletes getting hurt these days? Some injuries cannot be avoided, but many are having a hard time keeping up with their workouts, they are breaking down, and not able to perform. Training, working out, drilling, sparring, running, etc takes its toll on our bodies. Our muscles, nervous system, connective tissues and more are all pushed to their limit, broken down and need time to recover. If we do too much, our body cannot recover and it doesn t have time to build back up. Continue grinding for too long and your body will begin to break down. Signs of Overtraining Reduction in Performance and Coordination Elevated Heart Rate Increased Blood Pressure Lethargic or Tired all the time Depression/Anxiety Reduced Sexual Desire Exhaustion Chronic Soreness or Pain Research shows that only 2 weeks in an overtrained state can result in a 5% reduction in strength, 36% reduction in power output and can take 2-8 weeks to recover completely.

21 Sandbag Exercises to Build Massive Leg Strength, CORE Stability and Rotational Power for Fighters and Grapplers

by Josh Henkin I’ve been lucky, having worked with some top fighting coaches I’ve gotten to watch, listen, and really examine what fighters need. Funny enough many of these fighters haven’t liked me in the moment because we really tapped into what would make them better. Let’s face it, working on our weaknesses is generally a humbling experience, however, the result of dominating in our sport is the perfect reward. Now, you might be thinking you’ve read an article like this a million times, but I think you might be very surprised what I have to share. Some of these concepts may not seem sexy, but they work amazingly well. The only question I have is do you have the discipline to work on them to really become a game changer? Lower Leg Strength You might think fighters have great lower leg strength. Whether it comes from kicking, punching, or many of the different types of stances they assume. I have found overall though that lower leg strength was pretty bad. While skill trai

11 Ways to Get More Out of Your Training and Improve as an Athlete.

“Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don t.” Life can seem overwhelming at times, leaving us paralyzed, worried or stressed about what may come. We all experience challenges. Some we can control and other things are completely out of our control. The key to making progress towards our goals is to proactively focus, attack and improve the things that we can control, while not getting sidelined by common obstacles. 11 Habits That You Can Use to Improve Your Life. 1.  What you think.
