What’s overtraining

The following factors increase cortisol:

  • volume
  • intensiveness: how hard you push each set
  • psychological stress
  • neurological demand (eg. complex exercises, circuit training, …)
  • density
  • competetiveness

Increase only 2 factors, and decrease the others.

De-load the highest factor you have when overtraining.
