Too Much Exercise BAD For Your Health?

Hey there – Happy Friday!

I’m enjoying the last few days home with my new baby girl, and doing all I can to help out around the house before I get back to leading workouts at the studio at the end of next week.

SO glad and appreciative to have been able to take a couple of weeks away to spend with family, it has been really, really awesome.

How about you? What do you have planned for the weekend?

Don’t have a ton of time today but wanted to stay in touch – saw this article come across in my email inbox so thought I would share it –

The idea behind it is that meeting the minimum recommended amount of physical activity – >150 minutes/week of moderate exercise – decreases risk of obesity, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes.

Emerging research, however, warns that individuals can overdo exercise increasing the risk of a cardiovascular event. That is, the ‘more is better’ strategy can lead to cardiac overuse injury.

Read the article for more details – but the general recommendation is to train 30-40 mins most days, and not longer than 60.

ESPECIALLY interesting – because we’ve been a proponent of this short-duration, high-intensity, maximum-results-from-minimum-time approach at FVT for years. And this is exactly how we design every one of our boot camp and personal training workouts.

Anyway, gotta run – hope you have a great weekend, and talk soon –
