Feeling Tired and Low In Mood? Are you Overtraining?

Some gym goers hammer themselves thinking they are becoming lazy, complacent or lackadaisical with their training. This may well be true in some cases, but it might be that you’re actually burning yourself out....could you be overtraining!?

If you think that you might be, rest and healthy eating has to be the priority! Rest periods can range from 2-3 weeks, up to several months depending on the severity of the condition.

To help prevent the onset of overtraining syndrome, or support your recovery from it...consider the following supplements:

- Multi-vitamin and mineral for antioxidant and tissue support (muscle, veins and arteries)

- Omega oil blend for its anti-inflammatory properties in joints and connective tissue (ligaments and tendons)

- ZMA supplement for the replenishment of zinc, magnesium and Vitamin B12 which is commonly deficient in the build up to an overtrained state

- Iron supplement because deficiency is also common in the overtrained state, especially amongst females! An iron supplement can help to reduce anaemia and improve oxygen delivery and energy levels!
