From the little we know about you from this pain quiz, it seems likely that your problem is:
Over Training - Under Recovery
Over Training is something that serial exercisers may experience in their training life. We actually call it Under Recovery these days because it is actually an inability to recover from the training that is the problem, rather than over doing it.
Professional athletes have a full medical team on hand to look for signs of Over Training but the average amateur athlete has to rely on reading their body and being honest with themselves when their training responses start to negatively affect them.
Recovery from exercise isn't as simple as how many hours there are until the next training session. Even a very well written training plan can't take into account how well you've slept the night before, whether you are building micro trauma in your muscles faster than you can heal, how you respond to the stress of your working life or, for women, where you are on your monthly cycle. Training is individual and you should never compare yourself to how your friends are doing.
From detailed 72 hour continuous heart rate variability assessments to recovery massage and tissue assessment, there are many ways in which we can help. Our focus is to help you manage your recovery and deal with the effects of training by being an objective pair of eye on you. The aim is always to keep you from under recovery and out training and competing.
If you want to learn more, I’ve designed a short email series on the subject that aims to help you learn what you can do about managing this type of problem. Just put your details in the box by clicking this link and I will send the series to you.
But if you want to get on and get to improving your situation there is nothing like a pair of eyes on the problem, enabling us to fully assess the tissue. So why not take advantage of our Free Assessment or Pain Management services by clicking the Book Now link below.
