Limit your workout time
A limit is a boundary set beforehand. It is made to protect what is inside. While it is good to believe that limits exist only in your mind, it is foolhardy to push your muscles beyond endurance
Once you set up your workout sessions, create a buddy or studio group, you need to pay attention to your body’s demands too. Remember, you are just beginning after a slack period. It is easy to overdo in the initial stages with enthusiasm. It may lead to early burnout.
Muscular movement burn up energy in form of carbohydrates. Exercising generate extra heat and build up toxic byproducts of metabolism that fatigue muscles. The blood circulation removes toxins and supplies depleted oxygen to tissues. If this process is smooth and controlled, you will experience no problems. Over exert, and you may suddenly go in a tizzy!
Trainers help moderate exercise timings. 30-40 minute workout sessions are ideal for most people. This will also limit you exerting beyond what is good for you. Moreover, a preset end period motivates from beginning to end.
Exercising or strenuous movements cause sweating. Different body types sweat more or less. Sweating is an innate necessary mechanism for the body to cool down immediate environs of each cell and tissues. It also causes loss of electrolytes, which is why sweat is salty.
How does a plant suck up water from soil? It loses water through its leaves for cooling down its immediate environment. This causes a vacuum, which allows it to suck water from soil.
Similarly, when you sweat excessively, body loses water and fluids from deep-seated organs and tissues. If you don’t replenish this lost fluid, you will start feeling faint! Even if you do have carbohydrates in your body, it cannot use it or burn it due to lack of water and oxygen.
Hydrating beverages have spawned a whole new market for the sports and workout industry. Athletes know the importance of replenishing their lost body fluids with isotonic drinks well balanced with salts, sugars and minerals. If you put dried up raisins in water, they swell up. Imagine your stomach and organ linings as similar to grape skins. Water needs to pass through it by osmosis.
Isotonic fluids maintain the osmotic pressures inside body to ensure normal muscle contraction and absorption of water. If you drink only plain water, your stomach may fill up but it won’t be absorbed or reach necessary tissues normally. Inner contractions can cause you to experience sudden discomfort and balance problems.
