Training at high intensity or too often can result in over training, which can trigger adverse side effects that indicate you're working too hard. While this may take some time to happen, ultimately, if you're putting in too many hours with little to no rest, your body WILL shut down.
Here are the signs that you're working out too hard with little to no rest:
• If you're tired more than usual and dreading your next workout, you might be working too hard.
• If you have chronic injuries and excessive soreness means that you definitely need to rest your body from your intense workouts.
• Restlessness, insomnia, and feeling sick also indicate you may be spending too much time exercising and not enough time recovering. Listen to your body!
