Working out every day?
The popularization of sports has reached its peak in recent years. Bodybuilding contests, spectacular competitions of professional athletes and fitness enthusiasts, commercials with the obligatory image of trim bodies – all this makes us think that in the gym the sets of exercises should be performed regularly.
However, few people know that, in fact, famous athletes and professional powerlifters do not spend every day in fitness rooms. These people adhere to a strict training regimen and a well-planned fitness schedule. This is what allows them to maintain their body in excellent condition.
Modern trainers are building their workouts according to a new scheme, eliminating the previous workout regimen. The new workout scheme has already proven itself with athletes of all levels because of its high success in working out the body.
The old fitness regimen
Obsolete workout routines are beginning to be actively superseded by more modern programs. For example, until recently there was a high demand for a routine that required a different muscle group to be exercised every day. Six days a week were allocated for such exercises, of which only one day was used for recovery.
It turned out that such a grueling regime has a negative effect on the body: an athlete too often experiences fatigue and stress, both physical and mental. In this case, apathy and a general decrease in vitality were observed. Many in this condition complained of sleep disorders, loss of appetite, body aches and other painful sensations.
The fact is that this outdated athletic scheme reflected primarily on the nervous system: from overstretching the muscles, the body begins to experience serious stress. This becomes the first sign of improper action. The body begins to signal the person to stop the negative impact on it, gradually involving pain, discomfort, crepatoria effect, dizziness.
Simultaneously with the appearance of these symptoms, physical activity ceases to affect the body: the effectiveness of exercise is reduced, and muscle growth slows down or stops altogether.
Modern exercise regimen
Modern exercise programs emphasize the need to rest for full recovery of the body.
To build muscles it is recommended to train 2-3 times a week with a break between workouts of 1-2 days. During this time the muscles have time to relax and prepare for further physical activities. Professionals, who have long been engaged in sports and already have strength, endurance and other athletic indicators, can increase the number of workouts to 4-5 per week.
As a rule, modern subscriptions indicate 2-3 workouts per week. However, in consultation with an instructor, the number of workouts on a personal training program may be either reduced or increased.
The time of strength fitness training should not exceed 80 minutes. After this period of time, the body begins to use protein, from which muscles are built, as energy resources, which leads to the ineffectiveness of the workout.
The effect of daily exercise on the body
What happens if you exercise every day? Contrary to expectations, it is impossible to build quality muscles in this mode.
Despite the high physical load and high energy expenditure, the body will be mainly in a state of stress, dehydration and exhaustion. With such a training scheme, a plateau effect develops very quickly – training stagnation. To get rid of the plateau is quite problematic: in this case, either a complete change in the fitness training regime, or a temporary switch to another type of activity will help.
Daily large physical activity causes the following consequences:
- discomfort and pain in the joints, spine, bones;
- destabilization of the heart rhythm;
- loss of appetite;
- sleep disorders;
- depression, anxiety, apathy;
- feeling of fatigue, increased sleepiness;
- edema – as a result of water stagnation in the body;
- loss of coordination of movements;
- lack of concentration;
- shortness of breath;
- disorders of respiratory rhythm.
