How Much Exercise is too much exercise - Can you Exercise too much?
Can you exercise too much? What to do if you do too much exercise and see no
Here is a question by Sophie from UK.
I have been working out for nearly one month now....and cant wait to start seeing the effects.
But still have had near to no effect at the moment?
I am currently 116 pound and my aim is to loose at least 2 inches on my waist.
I healthy eat, and I go to the gym for 2 hour sessions, 5 times a week.
So that's a 60min high intensity 'Body Attack' aerobics class, followed by a 60min 'Body Pump 'weight training class 5 days a week.
What am I doing wrong? and is too much exercise the problem? :(
Hello Sophie, looks like you are doing 50% of the things right, but what about the rest 50% - NUTRITION.
I would advise you to start a meal plan.
You can use the fat burning diet tips
mentioned here, get a meal plans ebook with readymade meal plans
or get hold of a nutritionist.
The fact is eating clean, eating at the right times like post workout nutrition and getting a good nights sleep are very important too.
Also exercise is called as a cumulative effect. That is, it takes time for the effects of exercise and diet to become evident.
Although one month is relatively enough to see results, I would say give another 2 weeks with renewed information.
