Exercising keeps us fit, active, flexible and also safe from being ravaged by cardiovascular diseases. We are benefited from exercise but it has also a dark side - the disadvantages of excessive exercise that affect thousands of people every day.

Exercise has rescued obese individuals from an inactive lifestyle. There are so many ways to exercise - swimming, cardio, aerobics, jogging, walking, etc. But some people get addicted and end up overdoing it. Too much of even a good thing is harmful. Listed below are some of the negative effects of over-exercising. 

Joint Pain.

Joint problems are one of the negative effects of over-exercising. Over-training with weights that are too heavy, many times a week can contribute to risk factors like causing inflammation of the joints and other joint diseases.

Fatigue and Sleeplessness.

Over-exercising can cause disrupted sleep because your muscles have overworked and you become restless, hyperexcitable and your heavy routine does not allow your body to revive causing chronic fatigue syndrome.

Eating Disorder.

Doing excessive exercise for the desire to lose weight can suffer from bulimia, which is a serious eating disorder. People in this condition binge eat and then take steps to avoid weight gain such as purging. Another serious eating disorder called anorexia might happen when people are characterized by an obsessive desire to lose weight by refusing to eat or by losing appetite.

Weakened Bones.

Excessive exercisers might be haunted by conditions such as arthritis and osteoporosis in later life. Cortisol is a steroid hormone responsible for stress. It is produced by the adrenal glands. If we overdo exercise, the cortisol interference with bone-building is likely to happen and when cortisol is in the bloodstream then more bone tissues are broken than deposited. When addicts put their bodies under more pressure, they put themselves at a higher risk of fractures and breakage.

Affects Mental Health.

Studies show that ‘Over-training Syndrome’ i.e. those who over-train their body show the same biochemical makers as that of clinical depression. The emission of serotonin and tryptophan are altered by both disorders and they tend to show lowered motivation, insomnia, and irritability.

Abnormal Heart Rate.

Overdoing the fat-burning exercises can lead to poor cardio health. It results in a condition called arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythms), making them prone to sudden cardiac attacks.

Affects Our Immune System.

Too much intense exercise can reduce the immune system function. Under Intense physical stress, the body produces certain stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline, which raise blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Thus, it suppresses our immune system. So, we should take enough rest days to allow our body to revive its immune functioning.   

Kidney Problems.

If during your excessive workout period you notice your urine to be dark or reddish, it can be an indication of a medical condition called rhabdomyolysis, where substances from damaged muscles leak into the blood causing kidney problems.
