Understanding Physical Fatigue after Exercise
The feeling of fatigue that follows a good workout tells us that we are pushing our physical limits, and is a necessary part of improving our personal performance. However, in certain circumstances, fatigue may also be our only warning that we are pushing too hard and indicating a need to back off or risk of deterioration in our abilities. This is a common dilemma in a personal training program: Hard work makes us stronger, but how much is too much.
When properly performed, an exercise should produce an intense burning, fatiguing sensation in the muscles, laboured breathing, and elevated heart rate. These are all natural responses to intense muscular stress, and should not be considered cause for alarm within the context of a high intensity workout. Exercise should not, however, produce any sharp, sudden pain, pain or discomfort in the joints, or any type of pain in areas of the body not being directly worked during an exercise.
If you suspect an injury, stop the exercise and slowly lower the weight. Have it checked by a medical doctor. If you feel something that may be an injury and ignore it or attempt to work through it, you may cause even further damage to the injured structure.
Fatigue during exercise tends to occur in the following three stages, generally in the sequence below:
- Depletion of performance in the central nervous system (This can affect behaviour, performance quality, and efficiency of movement).
- Energy reserves becoming depleted (This reduces the capacity to perform)
- Morphological changes (This can change the state of the blood and cause tissue damage)
Note: The nervous system will normally deteriorate well before any morphological deterioration; and as such, the condition of the nervous system should be the main factor in determining training loads.
Fatigue while exercising
The following stages may occur during exercise:
*1st stage (Depletion in central nervous system performance). This is seen in the person's attitude or mood, as well as their actions. They may still be able to perform, but their mood may change from happy to more serious or even a negative mood. They may acknowledge difficulty as the first threshold is approached.
*2nd stage (Depletion of energy reserves) This is indicated by a deterioration in performance (e.g. distance being run, amount of weight being lifted, times being clocked/rate of activity etc). A higher level of activity may be sustained by using extra muscles, or an extra psychological effort, but performance efficiency will decrease (e.g. more energy will be used to perform the same tasks if they are being carried out by "alternative" muscles).
*3rd stage (Morphological changes) The fact that this stage has been reached may be indicated by:
- incomplete recovery between repetitions (e.g. in lifting weights)
- progressive deterioration in performance despite deeper (heavier) breathing (This can indicate lactic acid build up)
- Distressed behaviour Upon any indication of the third stage being reached, all activity should immediately cease.
Fatigue between training sessions
If there is inadequate rest between training sessions, there will be inadequate recovery. This is to be avoided. Muscles that have the chance to rest and repair will then be stronger and more resilient. It has also been found that in training the best method is to give the muscle groups at least one day if not two between training sessions. Symptoms of over training and not enough resting time for the muscles and fatigue - such a state may be indicated by the following:
- A negative attitude or mood
- Any abnormal psychological behaviour
- Commonly being quieter *Feeling stiff or sore.
- Sore throat
- Feelings of discomfort
- Feeling sick or ill (e.g. nausea)
- Reluctance to commence another exercise session
- Warm up activity is a poorer than normal performance
- Higher than normal pulse rate during rest period
If you feel tired all the time or lacking in energy, and would like to improve your energy levels or help others to improve their energy levels, then why not take this 100 hour course in Personal Energy Management.
