The conversation about this topic is becoming more prevalent, but in the field of physical development (strength and conditioning) it is a foundational element in developing methodology.

Overtraining/overuse syndromes are consequences of mismanaged stressors. In reality most experiences in life are stressors. Sport, training, etc. are no different – the good news is that these stressors can be beneficial. If properly controlled (not always possible in life, but more controllable in sport and activity) this stress allows us to adapt and become stronger.

When discussing safety and overtraining/overuse issues a good place to start would be to look at risk factors. Understanding risk factors and controlling stressors will help improve safety.


Prior injury is a strong predictor of future overuse injury.
Overuse injuries may be more likely to occur during the adolescent growth spurt.
Skeletally immature athletes in a rapid phase of growth are less resistant to tensile, shear, and compressive forces than either mature bone or more immature prepubescent bone.
Decrease in age-adjusted bone mineral density that occurs before peak height velocity.
Other factors that may contribute:
A relative lack of lean tissue mass, an increase in joint hypermobility, and imbalances in growth and strength.
A history of amenorrhea is a significant risk factor for stress fractures.
Higher training volumes have consistently been shown to increase the risk of overuse injury in multiple sports.
Other factors that may contribute to overuse injury but lack clinical data include:
Overscheduling, such as multiple competitive events in the same day or over several consecutive days. This factor may be better considered as a marker for a high ratio of work/recovery.
Readiness for participation/development/competition.
Sport Specialization.

Reliable and valid testing conducted at appropriate times can indicate performance issues related to overuse/overtraining issues and help improve methodology.

Next post – A deeper look at these factors.
