BRAIN NEUROTRANSMITTERS IN FATIGUE AND OVERTRAINING PDF

For example one of your clients has severely overtrained, what would be steps he could take to get his body and mind back? Thanks for all your work and your helpful advice on here. First because you have essentially two types of overtraining, one caused by excess intensity one by excess volume. Both will lead to a decrease in performance and both will make you feel like crap but they will affect different systems. So in that sense, yeah, neurotransmitters are normally the number one issue.

For example one of your clients has severely overtrained, what would be steps he could take to get his body and mind back? Thanks for all your work and your helpful advice on here. First because you have essentially two types of overtraining, one caused by excess intensity one by excess volume. Both will lead to a decrease in performance and both will make you feel like crap but they will affect different systems. So in that sense, yeah, neurotransmitters are normally the number one issue.

But receptor desensitization is not the only possible problem. You can also have the depletion of one or several of the excitory neurotransmitters dopamine, noradrenaline, adrenaline. So the cause could be: Dopamine depletion Noradrenaline depletion leading to lowered adrenaline since noradrenaline is the precursor to adrenaline Adrenaline depletion more rare Adrenergic receptors desensitization Dopaminergic receptors desensitization NOTE:overtraining via too much volume most often found in endurance athlete is more associated with depleted serotonin.

Kinda hard to know which one is affecting you. How can you tell which is affected? There are some tests you can do. Take g of tyrosine on an empty stomach in the morning, wait minutes and assess whether you feel better or not. If you have a big improvement on mood then it is a depletion issue because providing the body with the raw material to fabricated dopamine then noradrenaline and adrenaline fixed the issue which means that your receptors are responsive. It could be that your body is inefficient at converting tyrosine into dopamine this is very often low levels of vitamin B6.

You can try taking mucuna pruriens on an empty stomach. It contains L-Dopa which is the direct precursor to dopamine. If neither tyrosine or mucuna made a difference then we are likely looking at a dopamine receptor desensitization issue. Which is actually quite common in our modern society of instant gratification. Keep in mind that blue light tablets, smart phones, flat screen TVs are extremely strong stimulants of the dopaminergic receptors.

If you abuse them you can desensitize your receptors over time by overstimulating them. The best way to improve dopamine sensitivity is to dramatically decrease the use the the devices mentionned earlier.

It can go as far as not using a table, smart phone or TV for weeks. It could be another issue too. It can be adrenergic receptor desensitization or noradrenaline depletion. How can you know which one? If your noradrenaline is depleted you will have big problems concentrating and focusing, more frequent headaches, a tendency toward low blood sugar episodes. Noradrenaline depletion often occurs when your body chronically produces too much cortisol. Because cortisol increases the conversion of noradrenaline into adrenaline, which canquickly lead to low levels of noradrenaline.

BTW if noradrenaline levels are low, so will your adrenaline levels because you need the first to make the second. Problems concentrating is normally the big symptom to look at. In which case lowering cortisol would be your best bet since it would decrease the conversion of noradrenaline into adrenaline, allowing you to gradually increase your stores back up. And the best way to solve that is to decrease adrenergic stimulation for a while.

This means decreasing cortisol, phosphatidylserine, ashwaganda, glycine and magnesium glycinane or taurate will be your best tools.

And in reality the issue is even more complex than that. Because the problem could come from serotonin. Thank you for being such an educator for so long!

The Brain and Overtraining Syndrome Posted on by savagemethod Rest time from training is unfortunately something that has been pushed to the side for a lot of lifters. I mean prolonged rest of 7 days or possibly longer. You can ignore the signs but you will definitely pay the price for it. Most people think that if someone is well fed, sleeps well, and takes a couple off days a week, this means recovery can keep up with training demand. You can eat a caloric surplus with perfect macronutrient ratios and sleep 10 hours a night and still destroy yourself in the gym. The CNS, Adrenals, and Neurotransmitters The central nervous system is the most overlooked piece of the puzzle when it comes to lifting. Because strength is related more to the efficiency of the central nervous system than it is to muscle mass.

Overtraining Syndrome

Gagis All these three phases involve hormonal responses trying to re-establish the balance. Central fatigue hypothesis and overtraining. Those training induced alterations in the metabolism of the nutrients have been proposed as one of the factors that contribute to the overtraining syndrome. Deficiencies or imbalances in neurotransmitters and neuromodulators can also be caused by severe or prolonged stress. It is possible that the energetic metabolism, which is secondary to the endocrine changes, be changed in the overtraining syndrome, and thus, consequently affecting the fatigue as well.
