3 Signs You’re Overtraining


All winter long, athletes and fans of physical activity are cooped up inside. Whether you’re trying out a new workout plan or you’re training for an future athletic competition, it’s important to pay attention to your body. Staying hydrated before and after exertion is the key to protecting yourself from discomfort and potential injuries.

Arizona IV Medics is an in-home mobile therapy service that administers custom drip packages. Our dedicated group of doctors, nurses and paramedics works with athletes in training to help them achieve maximum performance. Here are our top signs that you might be overworking yourself and could use our rehydration treatments.

Fatigue and IVs for Muscle Cramps

Athletes understand just how demanding competition is on the body. As you move about the court, field or training facility, your muscles crave vitamins and minerals for healthy functionality. A good indication that you are overworking yourself is the feeling of tight muscles and fatigue.

Exhaustion is expected with training, but prolonged discomfort means your body is struggling to recover between workouts. You know your body better than anyone else, so consider rehydration treatments when you notice your endurance levels are far from where they should be. Arizona IV Medics offers our Myer’s Cocktail, which is packed with B Vitamins, Vitamin C, Zinc and Magnesium.

IV Hydration for Dizziness

Training for the spring and summer is just as much a mental game as it is physical. Whether you lift weights, run long distances or play contact sports, lightheadedness interrupts your flow and progress. If you feel dizzy during exercise, your body is attempting to raise blood pressure to the brain.

Dehydration forces your heart to work harder in order to compensate for dropping blood pressure levels. Fortunately, IVs for dehydration can alleviate feelings of dizziness using drips that go directly into the bloodstream. The human body is slow to absorb nutrients through the digestive system, so our custom packages are designed for immediate uptake.

Help your body regulate fluid levels ASAP with at-home appointments that take just 25 to 45 minutes to complete.

IVs for Athletic Training: Nausea

Workout plans and training sessions require discipline. In the event that you feel nauseous after physical exertion, your body is communicating that there is a fluid imbalance within you. Water takes time to hit your circulatory system, so an IV rehydration treatment allows you to feel positive effects instantly.

Arizona IV Medics uses the antiemetic called Zofran to reduce nausea and vomiting symptoms. We combine this ingredient with our Myer’s Cocktail to get you back on your feet in time for an upcoming competition. Our paramedics will check your vital signs upon arrival to evaluate your overall condition.
