Exercise and Injuries

By: Steven Godlewski

Anytime you exercise, your brain releases chemicals known as endorphins that produce a feeling of euphoria. This is also known as a "runner's high", which is very easy to become chemically addicted to.

Without this adrenalin rush, you'll feel irritable until you exercise again. Therefore, you'll go on exercising and not listen to what your body is actually telling you - which is to stop.

The reason exercise addicts continue to push themselves lies in what occurs when they don't work out. When they are unable to exercise, they will exhibit signs of depression, anxiety, confusion, and be less happy with themselves.

Exercise injuries doesn't only affect the body, it affects the mind as well.

Exercise will give you a fit body but once you surpass your limit it can lead to exercise injuries. Muscle damage, osteoarthritis, and heart problems will all be waiting in your near future if you continue to over exercise. The body has limits and if you push beyond that limit, you'll only create unwanted exercise injuries.

Exercise injuries tend to happen among those who are new to exercise. Therefore, if you are to reap the benefits of getting fit, be aware of possible exercise injuries and do not overstep your limits.

The initial signs of over exercise are exhaustion, which can lead to fatigue.

Keep in mind that it isn't only the muscles that are at risk, but the bones as well. Many people who exercise push themselves to the point of injuries such as shin splints or even stress fractures, then refuse to rest, which causes greater and sometimes even permanent injuries.

A brisk walk in the morning doesn't come without risk of injury, as walking too much can lead to osteoarthritis. When you walk, you are working against gravity. Even though you are exercising your muscles, you are also injuring your knee joints as well.

Many people who walk up to an hour or more everyday end up with complaints of aches in the knees. The fact is, jogging also injures the knees, and too many sit ups can hurt as well. As with any type of exercise, moderation is the key.

You should always start off exercising gradually to evade injuries, and combine several different types of workouts, which is one thing that obsessive exercisers forget to do. One complication factor of people who get addicted to exercise is that they will tend to perform the same workout each and every day, which puts them at risk of permanent injuries.

Think right! You should never work out to the point where you feel completely exhausted. Exercising to the point of exhaustion can lead to injuries. Your limit with exercise should be 45 minutes to an hour, four or five days a week to avoid any possible exercise injuries. Your workout should leave you feeling fresh and energetic, without any injuries. Every week you should make it a point to take a break - as your body will need to relax and rejuvenate to avoid any possible injuries.

The key to achieving your goal lies in your attitude, as exercising without causing injuries is the way to a healthier life.

If you take things one day at a time and don't over exercise, you'll be well on your way to a healthy body. Exercising can be a lot of fun and a way to relax, if you don't rush it. Start slow and gradually work your way up to avoid exercise injuries. Before you know it, you'll know how to prevent injuries before they happen and you'll know exactly what you need to do to remain healthy.
