Are You Exercising Too Much? Keep an eye out for warning signs and complications

 

 

Are You Exercising Too Much? Keep an eye out for warning signs and complications, and know when to call it a day. 

 

The Sandalwood star was a fitness fanatic and lived a very healthy lifestyle. "His exercise programs were a major hit among the youth, and he always had a positive impact on them to live a healthy lifestyle," nutrition coach Ryan Fernando writes on Instagram. One of the purported reasons for the actor's untimely death is that he engaged in frequent workouts. While this is unfortunate, it begs the question of whether excessive exercise can be lethal, and if so, how do we know when to stop? 

  

Exercising on a regular basis is crucial, but overdoing it can be dangerous. 

 

Physical activity is essential for preventing chronic illnesses and living a healthy, long life. Regular exercise allows us to live an active lifestyle, manages our weight, and keeps our hearts in good shape. It's also vital to remember that overworking our bodies might have negative consequences. Unusual exercise, exercise without adequate training, and abrupt scaling up of exercise to achieve quick results can result in musculoskeletal skeletal injury, as well as the impact on the cardiovascular system, including the heart and blood pressure.  

Insufficient warm-up and suitable exercise progression, as well as a lack of properly trained monitoring during hard activity, can exacerbate the aforementioned problem.  

When you push yourself and your body too hard in order to see rapid results, you are over-exercising or over-training. However, if you begin exercising or engaging in rigorous fitness regimens not because you want to, but because you feel compelled to, you may be engaging in compulsive exercise. 

While over-exercising can cause muscle soreness, exhaustion, dramatic mood changes, and sleep issues in the near term, it can also affect your heart and other parts of your body over time.  

 Excessive exercise might induce a spike in blood pressure. The accumulated plaques in patients with cholesterol plaques in the arteries of the heart can fracture or burst, resulting in heart attacks. Intense exercise might impair your immune system in addition to affecting cardiovascular capabilities. Exercising is an essential part of life, and there's no need to stop now. However, if you have a significant cardiac condition or have been diagnosed with chronic cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or other medical conditions, you must avoid over-stretching your body.

How to tell if your over exercising? 

Before participating in competitive sports, endurance, or high-intensity workouts, a thorough physical examination is required. Workouts of this nature should be scientifically developed. Scaling up exercise too quickly and too enthusiastically is a no-no.  

It's also crucial to know when to call it a day. The symptoms may be minor, but they must be treated quickly and with medical attention. "If there's ANY PAIN anywhere, undue breathlessness, dizziness or faintness, palpitations, undue perspiration or weariness suggest one is pushing it & one must immediately stop,". Never begin an exercise session if you are not completely healthy.

Pay attention to your body  

Your body tries to communicate with you in a variety of ways. When you get a cold or the mild flu, it indicates that your immune system has become weakened. When you gain weight, your body either notifies you that you're eating too many calories or, if the weight loss is unexplained, it warns you that you may be suffering from a hormonal disease along with other symptoms. When it comes to exercising, you must also pay attention to your body. Make a list of the exercises that you love doing. If your body feels strained or aches, don't push yourself too hard. After you've exercised, assess whether you feel energized or exhausted, powerful or weak. Even if the indicators are minor, they should not be ignored. Remember to pay attention to your emotional wellness as well.
