What’s the biggest problem that Crossfit athletes, physique competitors or anyone that trains hard encounters? We're so focusing on doing MORE in the gym that we never realize what we're doing. The heavier the weight, the more volume, the more frequent workouts and any addition to training robs your body of the precious raw materials it needs to optimize your hormones. With excessive training, your body increases the output of the stress hormone cortisol which leaves you sore, wrecks your sleep, steals your sex drive and slows your fat loss.

It’s called adrenal fatigue, otherwise known as metabolic damage, and I bet you have it right now.

How can I be so sure of it? Answer any of the following questions.

-Do you exercise intensely at least 3 times per week?

-Are you actively trying to lose weight and have reduced your calories recently?
-Do you do any form of aerobic cardio training at least once per week?
-Do you have any stress what so ever in your life (kids, work, significant others)?

If you answer “yes” to any of those questions than you likely suffer from some sort of adrenal fatigue. You may not notice any symptoms described below, after all, there is no set definition of what causes metabolic damage and adrenal fatigue, everyone is impacted differently.

Exercise and Metabolic Damage

How does exercise contribute to metabolic damage?


The reason being that exercising in of itself raises the stress hormone cortisol. When you combine intense weight training with increased amount of activity such as daily cardio like a physique competitor would do or double sessions that elite Crossfit athletes generally perform, your body releases more cortisol. As cortisol rises other hormones such as DHEA and testosterone drop.

Most people know that DHEA and testosterone can increase muscle mass, strength levels and sexual drive but both of those anabolic hormones can also increase your immune system, fight cancer and help you live a healthy life.

If you stop and ask any nutritionist, trainer or vitamin store employee a supplement question, they likely always end up recommending that you take some fish oil. So is fish oil that good that everyone should be taking it? What about the few studies that come out that show fish oil may have a negative outcome? Is that fact or fiction?

Generally, most of the fish oil studies are very positive and they show a variety of benefits making fish oil a multifaceted supplement. The significant “powerhouses” of every fish oil pill is eicospentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are often what the studies refer to when they make mention of “fish oil”.

 

What are the many research proven benefits of fish oil?


1) Heart Health

Heart disease is the #1 killer in the United States and there is strong science to back up the claim that fish oil plays a positive role in preventing heart disease. Studies suggest that fish oil works to lower triglycerides. If you consume too many calories and have too much body fat, your body will increase your triglyceride levels which essentially chokes your heart. Fish oil supplements have been shown to lower triglyceride levels.

Studies also suggest that fish oil helps to lower blood pressure which is also linked to heart disease. In addition, while fish oil does not lower cholesterol, it does favorably modify the ratio of “good” HDL cholesterol and “bad” LDL cholesterol. Yet another heart health benefits of fish oil.

2) Cognition and brain health

DHA is present in both the gray and white matter of your brain and is especially important in early childhood development. Fast forward to elderly people and fish oil has benefits on helping elderly folks to maintain their cognitive function as they age. Other DHA studies also suggest that it may help to maintain the actual size of the brain as people age and lot of emerging science suggest that fish oil may help fight Alzheimer disease.
