Teaching Tuesday: Overtraining Syndrome Info

At the 2021 US Olympic Trials last month, Simone Manuel spoke out about her recent diagnosis of Overtraining Syndrome. This can happen to any athlete at any level, so we are grateful that one of the world's best swimmers could bring this important topic to light. 

At the core of Overtraining Syndrome is basically overtraining. Overtraining can include an increased heart rate after practices, sore muscles, and fatigue. These symptoms can lead to more mental and physical symptoms if not addressed. We want to bring this topic up so that there is more awareness within our LSC for our swimmers, coaches, and parents.
