Eat Whatever You Like Because Too Much Exercise Will Kill You!
I feel like dying when I try to run, too far, too long.
Do you feel like you’re dying when you exercise too much?
Do you remember gym days like the multicolour wheel of death–when you return after several months hiatus?
The aerobics instructors tell me that achy burning muscles means it’s a sign that I am getting stronger.
Go for the burn–what burn, I feel my muscles exploding. Jay once did 1000 lunges to get his thighs to rip. I slapped my forehead when he told me that.
That’s just crazy–why would anyone train that hard?
Taken to an extreme, your body is telling you that, you are in danger.
I’ve torn ligaments and muscle before, and I remember the pain–for Jay the popping or snapping sensation as the muscle tears must have been excruciating.
It is not a case of whatever that doesn’t kill–makes you stronger BUT too much exercise will kill you if the pain doesn’t stop you from killing yourself.
There is such a thing as working out “too much exercise” for normal folks.
For athletes under supervised training, that is a different story as they have proper nutrition, adequate rest, and a recovery period.
For the rest of us normal folk who want to lose that stubborn 15kg – we shouldn’t over-exercise until we experience muscle pains, soreness, cramping, stiffness, weakness.
If you’re a lazy person like me, it is better to start off with brisk walks rather than an all-out onslaught of trying to jump into a workout routine.
Muscles breakdown when you complete a rigorous workout.
The only way to flush out the by-products is to treat them with fluids, more fluids, and even more fluids.
Staying well-hydrated allows your body to flush out the by-products of working muscles.
I don’t think I get to this stage that I sweated profusely and become dehydrated.
When you feel sore all over, it is important to slow down – not a time to increase the intensity of your workouts.
If your body feels sore throughout the day and, you are unable to loosen your stiffness you need to monitor yourself.
Start hydrating by drinking water.
If you feel nauseous, you have stomach pain, dizziness you need to see a doctor immediately.
Do everything in moderation.
While getting some exercises is the best things for your overall health – remember that good nutrition, enough fluids, rest, and sleep are equally important for your well-being.
I have a problem losing weight because I eat too many good meals, lead a sedentary lifestyle (I write for hours with meal breaks at my desk – so DUH) and sleep badly.
So, listen to your body.
Slow down when it tells you to do so.
Have a notorious meal a couple of hours before you exercise.
Stay hydrated well before, during, and after a workout.
Should you feel like something is off, see your doctor immediately and tell him or her of the changes to your normal routine.
According to the cardiologist, Dr Joel Khan, research suggested that white men nearly double the chance of suffering from heart disease if they work out around 8 hours a week.
White men who do a moderate amount of exercise a week seem to do better in comparison.
Apparently, too much exercise could prove harmful by placing unnecessary stress on arteries.
