I know “overtraining” is a very overused.
I am/was in fact over-trained. I finally forced myself to take some time off when I hurt a rib, and was overtrained/rundown and injured. Not terribly bright.
In any case I’m just curious on people’s thoughts on what should happen to my nutrition over a 2-3 week period where I’ll be taking it pretty easy. Part of me thinks “Hey, I’m not doing much, I should really cut back on my calories.” The other parts says “You’re overtrained, sick and hurt, you should eating as though you’re still training until your body bounces back, and then you’re actually training hard again.”
A little background, I’m between fights. Got a little short of three months until the next one, so putting on weight isn’t the worst thing in the world, but I’d rather have an extra couple pounds to lose.
