Some external forces are capable of causing injury during movement. Each time a person takes a step and the heel strikes the floor, a “ground reaction force” is transmitted through the whole body. As the speed of walking increases, so do the ground reaction forces, which leads to greater forces through the lower limb and an increased likelihood of injury. The human body has evolved mechanisms to attenuate the effects of ground reaction forces so that it is not damaged by their repeated occurrence.

Cytokineinduced symptoms of sickness are very much consistent with symptoms of overtraining. 19 are stimulated at all levels, from molecular to organismic, to repair stress-related trauma and to approach homeostasis.
