This condition will be exacerbated if the condition of overtraining is coupled with a strict diet because we wanted to lose weight excessively. It maybe obtained in people with overweight. The most important thing is not to become obssesed of excercise for us. Good sport is a sport that are carried out with a sufficient portion. Sports servings depending on the age and condition of the body. Do not force yourself to exercise if we are not in well condition.
Warming Up And Cooling Down.
Do not forget in every time exercises to do a considerable warming up and cooling down. For those who do not customed to exercise, warming up should be done for fifteen to twenty minutes. Similarly with cooling down. For those who are customed to exercise, the warming up and cooling down are done five to ten minutes. Warming up needs to be done so that our bodies are ready to do escercise. The lungs and heart are also prepared to do the exercises.

When you get to breathless and difficult to talk, it means that you have excessive exercise. Immediately stop your activities and perform cooling. Do exercise as much as three to four times a week. That portion are enough for us.

If we force ourselves to exercise even if we are sick, or make exercise a priority of our activity compared to other activities such as work or socialized with friends, then maybe you've been obsessed with the excercise. Remember, we are not a sportsman. Athlete does for a living with exercise. Their bodies have been trained for years since childhood in becoming athletes. We differ with them.
