Exercise… Less?


If you’re trying to lose weight or be the fittest you can be, you may need to exercise… less?

More isn’t always better. You can actually feel worse, increase body fat, and lose strength by exercising too long everyday. A recent study shows people whose daily workouts were thirty minutes lost forty percent more weight than those who exercised for an hour.

“No pain, no gain” isn’t always the wisest approach with your body.

Now keep exercising and don’t be afraid to challenge yourself. But take at least one day off a week, add some variety to your routine, and be wary of lengthy workouts. If anything, talk to your doctor or a certified physical trainer. You may actually reach your goals faster by doing less.
