Constance Contursi Barker’s Hit It! Fitness

Ask the Trainer: Should I exercise every day?
 
Hit It!® Fitness in Roselle IL believes in working hard to achieve weight loss and increasing strength and endurance but we also know the importance of recovery!
Q: Should I work out everyday?
A:  Depending on your activity level the answer varies. If you are talking about 20 minutes of light excercise, it should be done every day! If you typically take Bootcamp classes, High Intensity Interval classes or do heavy weight lifting, then yes you do need a day of rest. Listen to your body. Signs of over training are: fatigue, inability to lose weight, weight gain, decreased immune system, chronic fatigue, joint, bone or limb pain. If you prefer higher intensity classes such as Tabata, Boxing, or even running, consider an Athlete Yoga class 1-2 times per week and invest in a foam roller! Regular Massages can truly help with muscle imbalance and tightness and ease those sore muscles after a tough workout. Just 10 minutes can reduce inflammation, which can help your body recover. Other benefits of massage include boosting your immune system, flush out harmful toxins, decrease/prevent headaches, recover quicker from injury, decrease anxiety and depression and help with sleep!
