    Plateud

    I think I'v hit a plateau in my training program.. I train mon. and wed. from 6:15- 10:00, Tues. and thurs. from 7:30- 8:30 and sun. from 7:00 to 9:00 (all PM). I lift on tues and fri. for about an hour. I train for about an additional three hours a week in my basement and Im always doing crunches and pushups. Iv stopped losing weight and have even started gaining a little (although I started drinking ALOT of water, could that be why?) how do I break this plateau. Id run but its to damn cold and Iv also read it reduces the bodys ability to build muscle. any thoughts?

    Unless you are a pro and you are sleeping/eating the rest of the time or your training is some sort of zen meditation. You are badly overtraining yourself. Sickness and or injury are on the way.

    Iv gotten my fair share of bumps and bruises.. nothing serious though (thank G-d). Overtraining may put me at risk for injury but is it hampering my ability to lose weight and get into better shape? BTW, the extra time on monday and wed. is spent in weapons training classes which arent to demanding physically.

    How do athletes train often and their bodies adapt?

    If you feel you've hit a plateau, take a break from your current regimen and work another aspect of your conditioning or even look at another art for a bit.

    Let me tell you this, according to my sports doctor, he is also the Sports Doc for a few of the Raptors and Toronto Maple leafs and Blue jays, this is what he says about the workouts of pro athletes:
    What YOU know is a LOAD OF CROCK !!!!
    They do NOT workout 6 hours a day every day !!!
    Ans, unless they are jacked up on steroids, they DO NOT workout 7 days a week, not even 6 !!

    Fact: the more advanced you get, the stronger, the faster, the MORE time you need to recover, UNLESS you are on something.
    Your recovery ability is NOT proportion to your strength and endurance ability, the stronger you get, the more you put your body through, the MORE recovery time you need.
    Pro athletes PEAK for contest, they peak for the playoffs, the cycle their workouts to coinside with this peaks.
    NO athlete trains 3 hours a day 6 days a week for the whole YEAR !!!
    At the most they will do that for 2-3 months, at the MOST !!

    This is especially true for boxers and Strength athletes that have fights/contest booked ahead of time.

    You can either train hard or train long, you CAN'T do both.

    All this is from a DOCTOR the specialises in athletics and PRO athletes.

    Forget the hype.

    ronin is so correct.

    Peak ability is just that, peak ability. Available for a limited time only. It is a cycle.

    Overdoing WILL DAMAGE YOUR BODY.

    Trust me on this.

    if you overdo when you are young, you will pay for it later.

    Peace.
