Is there a trend emerging here? Does This Mean You Shouldn’t Workout? No, not really. Every expert we talked with agreed that exercise is essential for good health.
Dr. Udgeeth Dhir, director and head of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery (CTVS) at Fortis Memorial Research Institute, however, believes that “whatever you do in abundance can only produce harm, not good. Excessive activity can cause a heart attack, sudden cardiac death, or a deterioration in heart function.”
So, what should you know while working out at the gym?
Doctors advise against performing strenuous activities without the guidance of a trainer. Furthermore, before engaging in any type of high-intensity training, one should be aware of their medical concerns and understand where their body stands in terms of blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and heart illnesses.
This information should be shared with the trainer as well, or a doctor should be consulted before engaging in any strenuous workouts.
When Should You Stop Working Out?
Dr. Tilak Suvarna, Senior Interventional Cardiologist at the Asian Heart Institute in Mumbai, advises that if a person has the following symptoms while exercising, they should stop and seek medical attention:
Severe shortness of breath
More tired than usual
What Can You Do to Protect Yourself?
There’s no denying that regular exercise is essential for keeping your body fit and healthy. However, exercising should be done with caution.
Here are some things to remember while exercising:
Begin slowly and progressively progress to a high-intensity workout.
Do not begin difficult workouts on the first try. If you run into any difficulties, get expert help (both medically and in terms of exercise).
Inform your trainer of any medical history.
Warm-up and cool-down activities are essential before and after your workout.
