7 Signs Your Intense Workout Can Actually Harm You
By sleeping more
7-9 hours of sleep is very necessary if you are exercising regularly because when you sleep your body begins repairing the damaged muscles replacing them with healthier and stronger ones.
Try to lower your stress levels
You should go lighter on physical training if you are going through a phase of emotional stress. In this case, you substitute heavy lifting with lighter exercises or yoga.
In every 6-12 weeks take a week off
When you take a break from exercising you allow your body enough time to heal and get stronger. After your break, you will be surprised to find that you not only feel stronger but have indeed become a lot stronger than before. This will motivate you to stick to your fitness regimen and keep pushing onwards to your goal.
