It should be obvious that more is not necessarily better.. but some of us just don’t get it because ‘more’ means.. more, right?
Well theres good news and bad news.
The good news is that there’s bad news about over-exercising. score. no more guilt about taking time off from that relentless trainer with the perfect backside. I mean it would be a lot easier if we could just switch out our glutes.. lord knows I pay him enough.
The bad news about over-exercising is that it increases the release of cortisol (stress hormone) and decreases DHEA. Over training also increases free radical production and weakens the immune system.
Something good to know is that after about 30-45 minutes of cardio, one typically reaches the ‘tranquilizer effect’, during which there is up to a 500% increase in endorphin release that is more powerful than morphine and can last up to 5 hours. This means you become unaware of the damage you can do to your amazing body that you ironically are working so hard to take care of..
