Training Load

Are you overtraining or worried that you might be?

Overtraining is every athletes nightmare and can lead to fatigue and illness, resulting in long time outs from training and poor sporting performance.

The only solution to overtraining is rest, this can often be week, or in some extreme cases of overtraining, months of rest might be the only way to put it right.

This is where biomarker tracking and blood testing can help. By tracking your body's key markers you can avoid overtraining and prevent long breaks away from training.  

Our Training Load blood test measures the body’s key indicators for stress, inflammation and immunity. This provides scientific insight into whether you’re doing too much and need to ease off before it’s too late.

This profile is designed for athletes who are involved in frequent and intense training. It allows you to monitor your body’s stress load, which in turn enables you to improve your training plan and avoid overtraining and subsequent long-term rest periods.
