18 Aug Unhealthy Exercise Routines | Fatal Conveniences™
Human beings were designed to move. Our bodies thrive with regular movement. Unfortunately, as society has evolved, we move less and less. Healthy exercise routines are essential to maintain your health and keep your body functioning like it’s supposed to. But how much exercise is too much? And how do you know if your exercise routine is unhealthy?
WELCOME TO Fatal Conveniences™.
You all know I’m an avid exerciser. I move my body all day long– I have to! I don’t feel healthy unless I’m getting regular exercise. But, there have been times in my life when I’ve overdone it. It’s easy to become addicted to exercise, or get too obsessive about your workout routines. However, on the opposite side of the spectrum, not enough exercise– or none at all– is just as bad, or even worse.
In this episode, I’m going to break down why your body needs regular movement and exercise and what happens when it doesn’t get it. We’ll talk about the link between not enough physical activity and diabetes, and how your cells are affected by exercise. I’ll give you some tips on how to get started if you don’t have a regular exercise routine. And I’ll give you some signs to look for that you may be overdoing it with your workouts. Look guys, exercise is crucial to good health– you just need to find a healthy balance.
