Health Tip: Are You Overtraining?

(HealthDay News) -- When it comes to exercise, as with any other activity, it's possible to overdo it.

The American Council on Exercise says if you feel more exhausted than energized after a workout, you may be overtraining. The council offers these additional potential warning signs:

  • Seeing a decrease in performance.
  • Experiencing a loss of coordination.
  • Having headaches, stomach aches or other gastrointestinal problems.
  • Having frequent infections and more frequent muscle or bone injuries.
  • Having an elevated resting blood pressure and heart rate.
  • Having tenderness or soreness in the muscles.
  • Losing appetite or having trouble sleeping.
