Avoid Overtraining When Performing Paleo Workouts

Part of the Paleo Workouts For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Paleo workouts are simple and effective, so it makes sense that you may be tempted to do too much. But overtraining is a serious matter. It's a prolonged condition brought about when the body is unable to sufficiently recover from the stresses of exercise and often leads to a host of malaises. Here are a few signs of overtraining:

  • Depression/anxiety

  • Elevated resting heart rate

  • Lack of energy, sluggishness, exhaustion

  • Lack of or reverse of progress

  • Loss of libido

  • Mood swings/irritability

  • Weight gain

Listen to your body. If you feel overworked and overtired, it's time to rest. "Pushing through it," especially with the aid of stimulants like caffeine, will only make things worse. Rest and proper nutrition are the most effective treatments.
