Take a day off each week
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- Resistance exercises strengthen your bones and muscles, but it's easy to overtrain and cause injury.
The American College of Sports Medicine offers these suggestions to avoid overtraining:
- Include at least one recovery day each week.
- Alternate your exercises.
- Don't increase both frequency and intensity of exercises at the same time, and make sure that you don't increase either too quickly.
- Don't repeat exercises for long periods without any variation.
