“Being in a catabolic state naturally causes dehydration,” says personal trainer and nutrition expert Jay Cardiello, C. But if you’re still sore past the 72-hour mark, be sure to schedule a break and rest.
Here are some of the signs you’re dating an emotionally intelligent person:1. “This is probably what we think of most when we think of emotional intelligence,” says Susan Krauss Whitbourne, Professor Emerita of Psychological and Brain Sciences of UMass Amherst.
Cardiello explains this feeling is related to the body's nervous system, since overtraining “affects an athlete’s level of ‘happiness’ to train, depression, insomnia, and irritability.” He also cautions overtraining can be heightened by such things as “lack of proper nutrition (hydration), proper sleep, and personal/work stressors.” Has your body stopped changing in spite of your best efforts? “When you’re overtraining, your body is going in the opposite direction of growth, because your muscles are torn and all you’re doing is re-tearing them again," La Certe points out.
Don’t risk possibly entering into a muscle-burning phase.
Remember: Muscles need a chance to repair, and that’s only possible when your body is given the proper time to rest and recover before being forced into more exercise.
Everyone would love to think the person they're attracted to is emotionally intelligent (flashback to early-20s-me who clung to any soft boy who owned a vinyl record player).
