Default Markers of Overtraining

What are peoples thoughts on simple methods to monitor overtraining in athletes? Not necessarily bodybuilders: lets say speed and power athletes: sprinters, weightlifters, throwers etc?

Stone 2007 suggests that the simplest way to monitor over-training is to look at body weight and resting HR.

If bodyweight is tending to decrease while at the same time RHR is increasing then this is likely an indicator of overtraining?

Anybody have any thoughts on other methods to monitor athletic condition with reference to possible overtraining?

I have a couple and will share later if people are interested in this topic.
