"Say When: Learning when more exercise is not better"

Presented by Mark Kelly, Ph.D, CSCS, CPT, FAS

Tuesday, October 27th from 12pm - 1pm Eastern Standard Time



Summary:

The hot trend in the fitness world is to deliver really hard workouts via a HIT workout or some mega-session that leaves you drained. While this “no pain, no gain” and “more pain, is more gain” mentality may seem logical, especially in the short term, research is showing more negative effects than positive from high doses of exercise, especially high-intensity exercise.  This webinar will first introduce the “exercise is medicine” concept, and how dose-response curves apply to exercise as well. It will then explore the research on negative effects of too much exercise including over-training syndrome and signs to look for to back off the accelerator.



Learning Objectives:

1.       Understand that exercise behaves like a drug in both positive and negative ways.

2.       Learn about the detrimental aspects of too much exercise

3.       Learn what to look for to determine when enough is “enough” and avoid overtraining
