Some have asked about the possibility of "overtraining".  Overtraining is usually not the actual problem.  Feeling constantly "burnt out" is usually from a combination of lack of quality rest and lack of proper nutrition.  "Quality rest" doesn't mean days off in between workouts.  It means a period of sleep that is long enough and deep enough to promote recovery and proper function.  This will mean different lengths of time fo different people, but generally it's 7-9 hours a night.

Without going into all the aspects of proper sleep and nutrition suffice is to say that poor sleep or a lack of sleep and a lousy nutrition plan is a recipe for less than optimal performance and an increased chance of feeling tired or sluggish all the time.  It's also an invitation for lowering immunity and getting injured.

Consider the athletes or laborers who workout or do hard physical work for hours every day.  They don't usually receive overuse injuries or "overtrain".  Their coaches or bosses don't tell them to take every other day off to recover.

We're not isolating small muscle groups and exhausting them.  We do whole body workouts.  Eat the right foods in the right proportions.  Stay hydrated.  Get proper sleep. 

You'll be fine.


Please be sure to check the schedule for Saturday changes.  While the schedule is consistent during the week the hours may vary slightly on Saturdays.
