Self-assessment of overtraining

Overtraining should be diagnosed with parameters that are easy and inexpensive to use and which will not disturb the training process.

Unfortunately, a valid parameter that can help coaches and athletes to control training is difficult to find. Moreover, an individual response is very different; therefore athletes should be monitored continuously and analyzed individually. Much of this can be done by athletes themselves during everyday training.
