    Taking the search for sexy study names to extremes...
    Bother, they've beaten me to it! I've always thought ME, too, should have the word 'paradoxical' in its name, somewhere. Or maybe PPEM = Paradoxical post-exertional malaise. Or something.

    Anyway, it's a very interesting study. Some of the main points:
    • Each OTS-affected athlete had a different mix of triggers in addition to overtraining. So different triggers can lead to the same outcome. Sounds familiar...
    • One of the triggers can be excessive concurrent cognitive effort. Sounds familiar...
    • They hypothesise that the physiological processes which normally result in increased fitness after exercise do not work in individuals with OTS, leading to 'paradoxical deconditioning', i.e. the more you train the less fit you become. Sounds familiar...
    That reminds me of the recent McGregor PEM vs non-PEM vs HC study* where, counterintuitively, some findings for subjects with PEM lay between those for non-PEM and HC.

    Can we put the Nottingham exercise researchers in touch with these ones?
