Dangers of Overtraining in Competitive Sports
Posted: April 10, 2019
Choi Kwang Do differs from competitive martial arts in that it is a non-contact sport. When continually competing to beat others down to protect yourself in competitive sports, such as martial arts, athletes become easily susceptible to overtraining.
Overtraining is defined as a condition where you perform excessive training, one that your body is unable to recover from, both in and outside the gym. The less severe versions of overtraining may take a week to recover from, while the more severe versions may take you two or more weeks to recover. The negative effects of overtraining can manifest in a person's physical and psychological well-being.
