Workout burnout is a common problem for the avid exerciser. Effects can be as simple as lethargy or not seeing results and as serious as severe injury and organ failure.
In other words, we should not take burnout lightly—and we should take the warning signs seriously. So, let’s chat.
What is workout burnout?
All physical activity can lead to burnout. Burnouts can appear in different forms: physical or emotional, routine/fitness plateau, and adrenal gland fatigue.
Some of the more high-intensity methods that are popular in the fitness arena today—such as HIIT, SoulCycle, and CrossFit—tend to lead to burnout because of the intensity level and because many consumers make it their only outlet.
These styles do have many wonderful benefits, but when done daily—or most days of the week—burnout can occur with risk of injury, adrenal fatigue, or a more serious condition called rhabdomyolysis.
