|Finally, the news many people were hoping for…. |
Too much exercise could lead to you making bad decisions, study finds.
Before you say, “I knew it” and high-five your friends, It’s not what you think…
1. The study only tested Elite Triathletes (that’s not many of us)
2. A person who does a triathlon has non-stop activity for over 12-straight hours (ouch)
3. The constant impact from running is hard on the joints and can lead to increased pain and use of medications.
4. Over-use will not allow the muscle tissue to repair causing low levels of Growth Hormone – which we learned from my Deep Sleep emails – will affect the Prefrontal Lobe (decision making) part of the brain.
There is very little that is relevant to 99.99% of the population.
|The authors of the study mentioned that most people are not elite athletes and notated that this study has little to do with the average exerciser. |
Because this study focused only on elite athletes, the “brain fatigue” conclusions can’t be applied to the average person without more research, the group said.
However, it is a catchy headline and I understand that media outlets would use “Study finds Too much exercise = Bad Decisions!”
BTW, do we really think the biggest problem is that Americans are just becoming too fit?
Forget about most Americans, how about you? Are you too fit?
|The right Exercise – Recovery protocol is unique for everyone but should contain:|
1. Hydration – 1/2 your body weight in ounces per day (75oz if you weigh 150lbs)
2. Protein – should be consumed right after training – Pur Zealander – Grass Fed
3. Deep Sleep – need three (3) plus hours per night* of Deep/REM sleep (should be tracked)
4. Sugar/carbs/alcohols – slow down the recovery process
5. Omega Fat – Olive Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil and Fish Oil will help cells repair – Omega-3 is strongest
