Fear that too much exercise can “wear out your heart” has been all over the news lately, and if you read my article “Top 10 Reasons Exercise Is Bad For You“, then you know that there certainly are some ways that exercise actually can be harmful.

But if you know how to workout and bounce back properly (and have enough recovery tips and tricks up your sleeve) then you can control much of the potential damage that high amounts of physical activity can do.

So this Tuesday (tomorrow), 12/18/12, from 10-11 Pacific time, I'm going to sit down in a free live video workshop with WellnessFX founder Jim Kean, and teach you how you can be extremely active without destroying your body.

In addition to taking your questions live, here's what we'll be covering:

How do you know qualitatively if you're working out too much or too hard? What does it feel like?

Is there a way to quantify or measure overtraining, and if so, how?

What happens if you train too much or too hard for too long?

How much exercise is too much?

Are there reasons other than exercise that you can be overtrained or not recovering well?

When it comes to damaging your body, what is more risky – high intensity or high volume?

Can inflammation from exercise be linked to heart disease?

What kind of recovery tools can you keep around your house to help you recover faster?

What kind of foods can you eat (or avoid) to help you recover faster?

What kind of supplements can you take to help you recover faster?

What can you do to “bounce back” if you know you're overtrained?

And much more!

    you are right about Crossfit! and thank you for your reply. that's what I thought, too, but it's good to hear the confirmation from you! thanks, and happy holidays to you and your family!

  2. Tami T. says:

    I have a dear friend who is about 60 lbs overweight. She is going Paleo now, and she started really intensive exercising program which – I am afraid – might burn her out quickly. Do you think someone that overweight should start slower – maybe like walking – until he/she loses most of the weight and only then – go into intensive training? Or do you think it's ok to do intensive regardless of how fit and/or overwight one is?

    So, my question is, after one has been working out for 4 hours or so in zone 2, do most professional athletes allow their heart rate to climb a bit during the last couple of hours? Does zone 2 ever migrate during a workout or does zone 2 basically epresent an immovable zone that, as a whole, never drifts or fluctuates? And, if I do allow my heart rate to climb a bit to the 140's or 150 during the final hour or two, am I creating a deficit that then negatively affects my recovery over the next couple of days?

    When I click on the link and pre-register, I don't see anywere to pre-submit questions so I'll ask here. This question has to do with intensity and so, I think it indirectly has to do with recovery as well. If I train in zone 2 for a long duration workout, let's say 3-6 hrs., I'll notice that, obviously, as time passes , my heart rate will eventually begin to climb. By this, I mean that i have little difficulty keeping the heart rate on target for the first two or three hours or so. But, it becomes more difficult to keep the heart rate at 135 after four hours or so, much more difficult than it was at the outset. Yet, the body feels like it's not really working any harder. If I proceed to slow down until my heart rate comes back down to 135, I feel like I'm not doing that much and just logging hours and quantity.

    1. The area to pre-submit your questions is on the right side of page at… Jared – a little more than halfway down where it says "Can't Make It"? That will be a better place to copy and paste this!
