Health Tip: Avoid Overtraining
(HealthDay News) -- Resistance exercises strengthen your bones and muscles, but it's easy to overtrain and cause injury.
The American College of Sports Medicine offers these suggestions to avoid overtraining:
Include at least one recovery day each week.
Alternate your exercises.
Don't increase both frequency and intensity of exercises at the same time, and make sure that you don't increase either too quickly.
Don't repeat exercises for long periods without any variation.
