Yes, It’s Possible To Exercise Too Much: Here Are The Signs

Share

Make the most of your rest days

Help your body recover with these self-care strategies from pros.

Eat well and hydrate: “You should be feeding your body nutrient-dense foods, like lean proteins and veggies,” says Rosante. “And be sure to drink plenty of water.”

Use a foam roller: “Imagine knots on a rubber band—trigger points are like that, and exercising can inflame them,” notes Rosante. “Rolling out breaks them up so you cna move better.”

Walk around: “Long walks help increase blood flow to the muscles,” explains Rosante, “bringing oxygen to fix damaged tissue.”

Don’t binge on junk food: “A rest day is not a cheat day,” notes Holder.

Don’t stay up all night: “Sleep is key for your body to recover, repair muscles, and reset the brain,” says Holder. “Not getting enough can increase food cravings and push your body into chronic stress mode, making it harder to meet your goals.”

Don’t train—duh!: Sounds simple, but it can be challenging. Proper rest optimizes the body for future workouts. And don’t worry: “No gains will be lost in one or even two days,” adds Jon-Erik Kawamoto, founder of JK Conditioning in Newfoundland, Canada. To put it another way: Namaste…in bed.
