We all know that exercise is good for us, but is it possible to get too much of a good thing? Exercise provides many health benefits, but excessive working out can increase the risk of injury and have other adverse effects on health. It means intense exercise like training for marathons or endurance activities. Sometimes challenging activities are fine, but for good health benefits, researchers suggest that extensive workouts are generally not good for health.
A stream of studies suggests that short, sharp sets of straining activity, along with brief periods of rest, can be equally effective in boosting health and fitness than an hour spent treadmill. “ProfessorJamie Timmons of Loughborough University conducted a study according to which performing just 30-seconds of sprints on an exercise, two or three times a week helped in lowering down sugar levels as well as helped in weight loss”.
Recent studies also show that during extreme endurance activities done by the athletes around 60 per cent of them have an increased level of a chemical called as cardiac troponin, which only increases if the cardiac muscles have been damaged. Another chemical, brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) – a red flag for cardiac dysfunction – also goes up after long-distance events. Although fluctuations in chemical levels are temporary and tend to return to normal within a week but yet it is considered to be harmful.
