Article
Full-text available
Functional overreaching (FOR) occurs when athletes experience improved athletic capabilities in the days and weeks following short-term periods of increased training demand. However, prolonged high training demand with insufficient recovery may also lead to non-functional overreaching (NFOR) or the overtraining syndrome (OTS). The aim of this resea...
Chapter
Careful programming and manipulation of training and recovery are required for optimal performance. Functional overreaching (FOR) occurs after well-timed periods of relatively large training loads and adequate restoration. However, excessive training loads and insufficient recovery can result in non-functional overreaching (NFOR) or the overtrainin...

Full-text available
Optimal physical performance is achieved through the careful manipulation of training and recovery. Short-term increases in training demand can induce functional overreaching (FOR) that can lead to improved physical capabilities, whereas nonfunctional overreaching (NFOR) or the overtraining syndrome (OTS) occur when high training-demand is applied...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose: To provide details on the nature and symptomatic profile of training maladaptation in competitive resistance-based athletes to examine whether there are symptoms that may be used as prognostic indicators of overtraining. Identifying prognostic tools to assess for training maladaptation is essential for avoiding severe overtraining conditi...
Article
Full-text available
To date, little is known about overreaching (OR) and the overtraining syndrome (OTS) in strength sports and resistance training (RT) populations. However, the available literature may elucidate the occurrence of both conditions in these populations. A scoping review was conducted. SPORTDiscus, Scopus and Web of Science were searched in a robust and...

‘Evidence-based practice’, ‘applied sport science’ and ‘bridging the gap’: notions that frequent academic publications, underpin practice models and theme conference presentations. Conceptually similar, these terms both highlight and redress the estrangement between research and practice. No more apparent is this than within the field of Strength a...
Article
Frequent, progressive overload training can provide an optimal stimulus for the adaptations needed to improve performance. However, the limiting factor is the ability of the athlete to achieve sufficient regeneration between training bouts and endure strenuous exercise without maladaptation. In tennis, exercise training may include technical and sk...
Article
Full-text available
We review the latest evidence from studies that have examined psycho-physiological markers of overreaching (OR) and overtraining (OT) in endurance-based sports. MEDLINE (PubMed), SportDiscus©, AdisOnline and Ingentaconnect© were searched without time or language restrictions using free text words. Hand searching was conducted, with searches supplem...
