"Overtraining isn't real." Say WHAT?

September 17, 2017

A few years ago, I attended a workshop on weightlifting to gain continuing education units to keep my certifications up to date. At one point during the workshop, the instructor insisted that there was no such thing as overtraining. I was disappointed to hear this, granted that at that time I was knee deep in my doctoral research in physiology and everything I had learned up until that point had taught me that it is absolutely possible to overtrain your body.
