Making Shift Happen

74. Are You Overtraining?

Jun 13, 2022 | Podcast | 0 comments

Jen is in a black and red spandex bike kit, resting on a medic's chair with her left arm over her helmet to prevent blood from dripping down her elbow after a mountain bike crash during a race. She is still smiling somehow.

Are you overtraining without realizing it? Do your legs ever feel heavy (like I talked about in my last episode), or are you bored, have a difficult time concentrating, difficulty sleeping, low energy, or any of the other symptoms I share in this episode? If so, then you may be overtraining and not overreaching, which is putting you at risk for illness, injury, and burnout. Listen to this episode to learn how to identify overtraining and what to do about it.

Here are some other episodes to listen to related to overtraining and preventing it:

Do you want to learn more about my #ShredStrong program?

#ShredStrong is my signature year-round strength and conditioning program specifically for mountain bikers. It includes 3 strength workouts and an intervals session per week that easily fit into biking season, plus a mobility plan to help you relax and stabilize those biking muscles of yours. You also get coaching feedback and guidance from me on your movement that you record and send me via video.

All of this is only $49 a month, or $39 a month if you pay for six month in-full (totaling $234). Learn more and join here: The deadline to join was on Friday, June 10th, because we start the next phase on Monday, June 13th, but you can still join for a few more days if you don’t mind joining a little late. Better late than never, right?

You can also join my email list here to get the latest (I promise not to spam you, as I only email an average of about 1-2 times a month).
