7 Reasons to Stop

Gimnasio Turre is the town’s friendliest community based gym and fitness studio.

Being as physically active as possible protects your health. The benefits of physical exertion far overweigh any implicit threat, but it isn’t always a good idea. So, the advice is to just hear to your body.

These are 7 signs that you should stop exercising and take it easy for the foreseeable future.

1) You Feel pain in your chest, Pressure, Discomfort

This is presumably the most severe warning sign of them all. While a heart attack is rare during exercise, it’s possible to happen to someone who has an underlying heart complaint.
The problem with this is most people are ignorant of any issues until these warning signs appear. Having these symptoms during a drill session is the sign to stop and seek medical attention. Reasearch shows that women are more likely to have other symptoms. These symptoms include

  • Discomfort in the back, jaw, or throat
  • Nausea
  • Coughing
  • Headache

Do not ignore off these symptoms, as they’re a warning sign that something more fatal is afoot.

2) You “ feel the burn.”

This means that lactic acid, which is produced when the body breaks down carbohydrates to use for energy, is making your muscles acidic. Indeed though this is necessary to increase muscle strength and endurance, it’s recommended that as soon as you feel the burning sensation, you begin to slow down your exercising to a low intensity until the burn disappears and then gradationally increase the intensity again. Repeat this process throughout your drill.

3) Pain or tenderness that doesn’t disipate.

Stop for the day to cover yourself from getting an injury to a bone, tendon or ligament. If you feel the slightest pain or tenderheartedness in a specific spot while exercising. Don’t restart exercising until the pain or tenderheartedness has fully gone.

4) Chills, headache, severe muscle burning or blurred vision.

These symtpoms mean that you could be having a heat stroke — a potentially fatal condition. Your body temperature could be so high that you’ll need to be cooled right down to help brain damage so stop exercising immediately.

5) Sore, stiff muscles the day after a drill session.

Also known as delayed- onset muscle soreness (DOMS), this generally occurs eight to 24 hours after intensive exercise that puts pressure on your muscles. Stop, exercise at an easy position for as many days as it takes for the soreness to vanish, then renew your harder training.

6) An elevated heart rate upon awakening.

One way to check your fitness position is to take your sleeping heart rate, which is the number of times your heart beats per 60 seconds while you are at rest. Generally, it should be under 75 beats every 60 seconds. As your fitness and cardio situations improve, this rate will drop, which is a sign that your heart and muscles are working more efficiently.

7) lump or pain in joints.

Occasionally it’s OK to power through minor muscle pain, but ligament & joint pain is a different matter. Any kind of swelling is an suggestion that you have caused acute damage to the soft tissue or joint.
Occasionally common pain isn’t matched or accompanied by swelling, and that’s when you have to be careful. However, you risk serious nerve damage that may require surgery, take a break and get a check- up.
