    Definition:
    Excessive training of lifting weights, running or aerobics that causes injuries, loss of body weight, insomnia, anorexia (loss of appetite), depression, and chronic muscle soreness and slows down your workout recovery rate. It is a condition on which there is a dip in performance or training. It is a result of a imbalance between the stress applied to the body or mind, and the individual's ability to adjust to it.

      Overtraining doesn't mean that you've trained too much. Maybe you've trained to long or trained with too much intensity to frequently, or you've overdone it with one or two exercises.

      Getting in shape is one thing, but, making yourself perform at your highest level of exercising to every workout is very rewarding but it can lead to a plateau period, poor performance, and ruts. If you experience three or four workouts in a row that seem to be stale you maybe in a state of overtraining.
