When Too Much Exercise Is Too Much

You know people take words too seriously that they over exaggerate it? Well, some people take incorporating exercise into their daily lifestyle to a whole new level.

Instead of the ideal one hour's worth of moderate exercise, some exercise nuts overwork their bodies by putting in at least two hours of exercise per session while working multiple exercise sessions a day.

If you think that by exercising more you'll reap the benefits of being physically active faster, then you're dead wrong. The more you overwork your body, the more chances of you injuring yourself from muscle overuse.

You'll start off with minor muscle strains and sprains. But over time, you'll experience more severe problems like bursitis and tendonitis to name a few.

Over-exercising will end up costing you more in medical bills as opposed to what you intended to save when you started working out.

To prevent overuse injuries while exercising, consult a fitness expert first. They'll be able to tell you what to do and how long you should do a routine without compromising your health.
