Performance Optimization Specialists Share 3 Dangers of Over-Exercising, Honolulu, Hawaii

We're all aware of the dangers associated with not exercising enough and the toll poor physical fitness can take on our health. But exercising too much can be dangerous as well, and for ideal performance optimization, one should aim for a healthy, balanced level of exercise. IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health offers osteopathic and sports medicine as well as nutrition and wellness coaching to clients throughout the Honolulu, HI, area. Here, they discuss three dangers associated with over-exercising.

3 Dangers Of Over-Exercising

1. Cardiovascular Issues

Long-term, high-impact over-exercise may contribute to potentially serious heart conditions. The actual structure of the heart begins to change, which could lead to major problems. Enlarged arteries and hardening of heart cells may also become an issue. Those who engage in unending training for high-endurance events like marathons, triathlons, and distance bicycling racing are also susceptible to more short-term heart problems, including lowered antioxidant levels and the hardening of blood vessels.

2. Muscle Damage

performance optimizationYour muscles need time to recover between workouts, which is why downtime is so crucial to performance optimization. If your muscles don't have adequate time to heal and recover, you could face issues ranging from muscle pain and discomfort to muscle tears and strains. IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health provides wellness coaching aimed at helping you find the right amount of exercise for your health and fitness goals.

3. Depression & Anxiety

A healthy amount of exercise serves as a natural antidepressant, releasing the feel-good chemicals we need to stay balanced and calm. But exercising too much can lead to exercise addiction, which, like any other addiction, comes with obsessive thoughts, depression, and anxiety. Striking a balance is crucial in your exercise program and central to performance optimization.
