Exercise Smart: How To Limit The Risks
“Exercise is a good thing, isn’t it?”
If you said the above statement to a room over 100 people, you would almost certainly hear a hearty 100 out of 100 people chorus: “yes!”. In the modern world, it is impossible to overlook the plethora of articles, blog posts, and medical research that emphasizes the importance of exercise for overall health and well-being.
However, in the midst of the near-universal acceptance of the benefits of exercise, it is worth pausing for a moment. Without wishing to negate the simple truth that exercise is good for you, it is true that – in life – it is incredibly rare to find something that is nothing but good. Exercise is just the same; it has many advantages, but also a few disadvantages that you will need to take note of to get the most from it…
Exercise is an excellent example of an old saying: “you can have too much of a good thing”. As exercise tends to make people feel good – thanks to the endorphins – it can be tempting to over-exercise. This may feel positive at the moment, but can be outright damaging to your physical health – and, as detailed on https://www.everydayhealth.com/fitness/over-exercising-linked-to-life-threatening-condition-called-rhabdo.aspx, can even increase your risk of a life-threatening condition.
In many ways, knowing when to stop exercising is just as important as knowing when to start – there is a point at which one more mile, or one more rep, is actively doing more harm than good. If you’re not sure where this line is, a few sessions with a personal trainer may help you identify your limits.
An injury is a constant threat for those that exercise, and it can often be specific to the type of activities you engage in. Runners, for example, are prone to a number of specific ailments; cyclists can experience accidents while on the road that lead to them requiring assistance from GBW.law/personal-injury/bicycle-accident/ and similar groups, and even calmer disciplines can cause strains and sprains that take time to heal.
To try and mitigate the damage that injuries can do, keep two central philosophies in mind.
- Exercise should always be as safe as possible – for example, cyclists should choose routes that are clear of busy roads, while runners can use supports and tape to help reduce the risk of injury.
- Exercise should always cease if you are in pain. There is a big difference between “the burn” and genuine pain; as you progress with your fitness regime, you should begin to identify a difference. Trust your body; if it’s screaming at you to stop, then stop.
As https://qz.com/759633/can-exercise-be-addictive/ details, exercise addiction is a genuine threat. Unfortunately, the symptoms are often difficult to identify, as a dedication to an exercise regime is – societally speaking – predominantly seen as a positive.
However, the difference between a healthy dedication to exercise and an addiction is usually a feeling of necessity. If you feel you have to work out – and you can’t relax without doing so – then it may be worth exploring this issue in more depth with a qualified professional.
To be clear, exercise is an overwhelming positive for the vast majority of people – but due care and attention is still necessary to ensure you get the most from it.
