Medical expers say getting the proper rest is vitai LO every exercise pro-
grani. VWraie ones body is strengtnennig through ia consistent exercise 1iu-
gram, it also craves down )eriods tu recover. For those who don't know huvw
1o implement proper rest tune in an exercise program, heire are some tips:
*Make some recovery time.
Rest crime between aerobic exercises sucn as ruohniig a-id resistance
exercises like weightlifting is different. A runner's aody normally can
recover in ess than 24 hours, whie a weightlifter s ooy typically needs
two days ot recovery tii' e.
eTake time off when sick.
When one's body is weakened by an illness, exercise can make the ill-
ness worse. Abdominal unrest may lead to vomiting and diarrhea, which
cause dehydration. Cough and other congestion problems may make
one's breathing more difficult. If at any time the body feels ill, rest until
the body completely heals.
*Relax some during pain.
It is normal for one's joints to hurt after a good workout. However, if
they hurt when one attempts to do small things like brushing your teeth
or walking to the resti-oom, suspend your exercise program. If the pain
doesn't improve after a couple of days of rest, consult a physician.
-Get plenty of sleep.
Proper sleep helps the body recover from a workout and helps provide
the energetic feeling needed to tackle the next set of exercises.
-Monitor symptoms related to heat.
Dizziness, headaches, muscle cramps and clamminess are symptoms
of heat illness. Stop exercising, find a cool area to rest and rehydrate
with water or an electrolyte replacement drink..
