Good Workout Behaviors
As a trainer and a Pilate’s instructor, I am always encouraging my clients to get more active. Occupied to the exciting, though, too much workout behaviors will have bad significances on the mind and body. We asked some experts in fitness, nutrition, and psychology to help identify symptoms of over-exercising – keep reading to find out what they said.
1. You’re sore every day:
Some level of soreness is expected after hard workout behavior, but your muscles should improve as you adjust to a new program. DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) usually occurs one to three days post-exercise and will continue to get better over time.
2. Injuries keep collecting up:
Physical therapist Christine Gorsek said, Ongoing to fight with the same injury-causing tendinitis may be a sign of overtraining. If you are a new mother, reimbursing care to your body and action is especially significant to save your long-term-injury danger down.
3. Loss of appetite:
It should be noted that workout behaviors may lead to nausea post-workout, but if you find your appetite is not returning, it’s time to take action!
4. Ravenous appetite:
Working out crazy amounts may contribute to consuming more calories than you burn. I tell my clients to start with 30 minutes of daily exercise and see how their appetite changes. They can effort to up the trial duration but should stay in tune with starvation changes.
The real damage comes in when you don’t allow your body time to recover, throwing your body out of whack. When your hormones are all over the place, your brain struggles to tell your body it’s time to sleep. For a myriad of reasons, lack of sleep can negatively impact your health and cause you to gain weight. Not a side effect you want if you’re trying to get in shape! If you’ve already cut out caffeine and you’re still finding it hard to fall asleep or stay asleep, you may be exercising too much.
6. Hair loss:
Julie Shapiro, certified personal trainer and yoga instructor, notes, “While exercise in and of itself does not cause hair loss, excessive exercise can lead to hair loss because it places excess stress on the body. This chronic stress causes hair follicles to go into a resting state, causing it to shed. According to the American Hair Loss Association, this is a condition is known as TE or Telogen effluvium.”
7. Brittle nails:
If you’re not getting the right vitamins and minerals, your nails may change in color, develop white spots, or become very brittle.
8. Longer recovery for colds and illness:
While most exercise helps to boost your immune system, long-endurance exercise may open the door for increased stress and inflammation, causing you to stay sick longer than you’d like.
When it comes to exhaustion, psychologist Amber Parker, PsyD, LCP, with the Healthify Pedia said, “Exercise can be a wonderful tool for managing stress, anxiety, and depression. However, for someone who is chronically stressed or anxious, too much exercise can keep the body in a state of physiological arousal. The body cannot maintain that state indefinitely and will eventually become depleted. Signs of this depletion are exhaustion and fatigue that we have difficulty overcoming.
