If an athlete stops training, his/her ranges of movement will decline over time to those maintained by his/her other physical activities. If you don't continue with regular exercise your body will return to its original state of fitness. For example if you have a constant training plan which you carry out for 3 weeks but then after the 3 weeks you stop his programme your fitness level will decrease. Tedium- if training sessions are boring then it will affect the athlete's performance during training and make them not want to continue so no progression will be made. ...read more.
