|Exercises with no pain!!!
PAIN… is your body’s way of protesting!!
You may be wondering why some sports people still become sick while at the same time physicians recommend exercising for better health. Most athletes suffer from upper respiratory tract infections… why this? Is it because they don’t work out enough? Are they not fit? …or maybe, are they overdoing it? Let’s find out…
Exercising is one good source of excellent health, but it also is a fact that strenuous exercise can be bad for your health and may cause infections. Moreover, infections may require an athlete to reduce his/her exercise tolerance. Even though light exercises during convalescence may speed up recovery, exercise intolerance may increase the severity and duration of illness.
Exercising does help expand your lungs and strengthen your body, but it must be done properly. Heavy exercise may cause infections. And if you continue exercising during infection, your condition may get worse instead of making a full recovery.
Don’t just jump off your bed one morning and run your lungs out. You might not want to do it again ever in your whole life. Be rational, avoid infections. Do it the right way.
Here is the best way to get going:
- The first thing must be to talk to your doctor about your health condition and body fitness.
- Discuss your exercise plans with your doctor and take his/her advice.
- Seek supervision from a professional physical therapist or a qualified athletic trainer.
- Begin with light exercise, and take it a little at a time.
- Build up gradually.
- Make it fun, recruit a buddy.
- Increase water intake.
- Listen to your body - pain is your body’s way of informing you something is wrong.
- Excersise more often.
- Avoid alcohol intake.
- Have a balanced nutrients intake.
- Go for check ups and discuss complications with your doctor regularly.
Don’t harm yourself. Healthy living is not worth the pain. There are several risk factors associated with bad exercise habits that you must abandon to avoid pain and infections. Here’s what not to do:
- Don’t begin with heavy exercises.
- Don’t resume exercising if you have fever or other infection.
- Don’t associate with infected people.
- Don’t smoke.
- Do not drink hot nor iced drinks before and after exercise sessions.
- Training should be stopped if an individual has a fever.
- Do not resume training at the same level -build up gradually.
