I love the above quote from @thefunctionalchiro . So many people are quick to jump at the “over training” demon. Often, it’s important to take a step back and review all aspects of your life and what impact that has on your training, performance and progress. Firstly, your sleep. Are you getting enough and what is the QUALITY of your sleep like? Your nutrition. Are you fuelling the engine correctly? Are your macro and micro nutrient levels optimal for what you are trying to achieve? Your “pre-hab”? Are you preparing for the workouts you are completing effectively? Listening to your body. The idea of the hardcore “NO DAYS OFF” crew is idiotic. Listen to your body, take a rest day when your body is talking to you and get regular body maintenance through a quality stretching program, massage therapist, Physiotherapy, Chiropractor or Osteopath.
One thing to remember when choosing the appropriate therapy modality. Don’t choose the therapy. Choose the therapist. A passionate, qualified Chiro, Physio or Osteo are worth their weight in gold.
