Are you overtraining in the weight room? Understanding overtraining and sport performance

Andrew Fry ©2020
You must log in to watch this webinar recording.

The term “overtraining” is used a lot in the sport and exercise world, but what exactly does it mean when it comes to the weight room? In this webinar Andy Fry, PhD, coauthor of Science and Practice of Strength Training, examines how overtraining can occur in the weight room, and how it can affect performances important for sport performance. He will also discuss how “overreaching” fits in to a strength training program, both good and bad. Are all performances affected equally, or are some more susceptible? And perhaps most important, what can be done to avoid this condition? While much remains to be discovered, attendees will gain practical tools for recognizing and avoiding this problem.

Andrew C. Fry, PhD, is a professor in the department of health, sport, and exercise sciences at the University of Kansas. After obtaining his bachelor’s degree in physical education at Nebraska Wesleyan University, he earned his master’s degree in exercise science from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln and his doctorate in exercise physiology from Penn State University.

During his two-year postdoctoral training, Fry studied cellular and molecular muscle physiology at Ohio University. This was followed by 13 years at the University of Memphis, where he was the director of the Exercise Biochemistry Laboratory. At the University of Kansas, he helped develop the Research and Coaching Performance Team in collaboration with University of Kansas Athletics. His research interests over the years have consistently focused on physiological and performance responses and adaptations to resistance exercise, as well as overtraining.
