In order to maintain a healthy body, it is very important to have a balanced diet, sufficient sleep, and regular exercise. In particular, regular exercise is an essential habit for maintaining a healthy body. If you do not exercise, which is an important management habit, you will become overweight, and at the same time, various physical abnormalities such as indigestion, constipation, and shoulder pain will appear frequently. In addition, if this lack of exercise continues, the immune function decreases and cardiovascular problems occur, making it easier to develop various metabolic and chronic diseases. Therefore, it can be said that it is very important to have a habit of exercising regularly by recognizing the various physical abnormal signals that appear due to lack of exercise. So today, let’s check out the various symptoms that appear when you don’t exercise enough.
Several symptoms of lack of exercise
1. Abdominal fat gain
Weight gain is not a sign of lack of exercise, because an increase in muscle mass can lead to weight gain. However, the accumulation of fat in the abdomen and increasing belly fat can be seen as a lack of exercise. If the accumulation of abdominal fat continues, it can adversely affect the health of the stomach, pancreas, liver, kidneys, etc., and when prolonged, it leads to the occurrence of various related diseases. It is important to exercise regularly so that the waist circumference does not exceed 40 inches for men and 35 inches for women.
2. Shortness of breath when climbing stairs
Shortness of breath when climbing a lot of stairs at a high speed is a natural response of the body, but if you are short of breath even if you do not climb much at a slow speed, it can be seen as a symptom of lack of exercise. Therefore, it is very important to exercise regularly, such as walking and jogging, to improve lung capacity and activate blood vessels and the circulatory system of the heart.
3. Chronic Fatigue
The symptoms of fatigue even after getting enough rest and sleep are also said to be one of the signs of physical abnormalities due to lack of exercise. Such fatigue is caused by insufficient supply of energy to each part of the body through blood. In particular, such chronic fatigue not only causes problems such as deterioration of physical condition during active hours, but also causes problems in getting normal sleep, which can lead to sleep disorders such as insomnia. According to several studies, regular exercise reduces fatigue, improves vitality, and has a good effect on clearing the head. Therefore, walking, stretching, and jogging for a certain amount of time a day can be effective in relieving chronic fatigue.
4. Increased cravings for sweet foods
The increased urge to continue eating sugary foods is also said to be a symptom of a lack of exercise. In particular, when you are stressed or fatigued, your intake of sweet foods may increase to relieve it. If you continue this habit, it will cause a sharp change in blood sugar, an increase in cholesterol level, and an increase in fat accumulation, which can lead to diabetes and high blood pressure. It is the cause of the occurrence of several adult diseases. One study found that people who exercise regularly have a reduced craving for sweets, while those who do not exercise have a greater craving for sweets.
5. Difficulty doing one or two push-ups
Push-ups, also called push-ups, are one of the representative full-body exercises that require the use of all muscles in the body, not only the arms, but also the back and shoulders. The number of repetitions varies according to age and gender, but in general, you need to do 5 to 10 exercises in order to be in a state where the amount of exercise is not insufficient. However, doing one or two push-ups can be considered a lack of exercise, so it is recommended to exercise regularly. It is said that when it is difficult to do push-ups in a proper posture, it is better to put your knees on the floor and then do it in the correct position when the number of push-ups increases more and more than to do it too much at the beginning.
6. Easy to catch a cold
Lack of exercise interferes with the normal flow of blood and causes a lack of basal metabolic rate. If the metabolic function continues to decline in this way, the body’s immunity against foreign antigens from the outside is also lowered, so that colds occur more easily and the frequency of occurrence also increases. Therefore, it is important to exercise regularly for a certain amount of time a day to help stabilize normal metabolism and immune function.
