Beginning exercisers and professional athletesalike all experience one common side-effect of activity: muscle fatigue. While frustrating, this is the body’snormal response when adapting to a new fitness routine and keeping a personaware that they have reached their psychological and metabolic limit foractivity. To combat this effect,there are lifestyle changes one can make which will improve fitness levels andminimize muscle fatigue overall.
Ensure before and after each workout that a personis maintaining a proper diet of complex carbohydrates and proteins, plenty offruits and vegetables, calcium and other essential nutrients. Carbohydrates are necessary beforeactivity to maintain stamina and provide energy, and protein is importantpost-workout to aid with muscle repair.
In addition to nutrition, maintain adequate hydrationby drinking water or sports drinks throughout the day and throughout theworkout. The recommended dailyintake of fluid is 10-12 8oz glasses per day, and approximately 125-150ML ofliquid for every 10-20 minutes of activity.
Pay attention to the form of the exercises beingengaged in. Proper form eliminatesunnecessary movement, which will help channel energy into the workout andenable a person to balance and perform better. Pay attention not only to cardiovascular endurance – whichis important in delaying muscle fatigue and improving overall health – butmaintain adequate flexibility and strength levels to protect the body frominjury and improve performance of physical movements.
Maintaining proper fitness levels will not onlyhelp fight muscle fatigue, but will increase physical performance,cardiovascular health, and overall physical well-being.
