Strong physical activity
It's no secret that when doing fitness, some people come to a point when they decide to increase the weight of traction. Without supervision, an amateur isn’t able to competently assess his capabilities, and it is likely that he will overestimate himself and pick up a weight he is not ready for. As a consequence of lifting excessive weights on a regular basis, the amateur athlete suffers from his cardiovascular system, musculoskeletal system.
Weight lifting puts the whole body in a tense state and makes it difficult to breathe, loading the spine and chest with it. In addition, the muscles that envelop the chest and participate in breathing are also tense. As a result, it turns out that the large arteries and veins are squeezed at the moment of tension, and blood does not enter the heart well, and the venous blood cannot find a way back, and the varicose capillaries burst.
The spine, as the basis of the musculoskeletal system, is under enormous strain. The level of risk of an intervertebral hernia and sciatic nerve pinching depends on how exactly an amateur athlete performs the exercise, how accurately he holds the vertebral column. Hernias and pinches are accompanied by severe and intense pain and require the immediate cessation of physical exertion at the time of rehabilitation, and in some severe cases, even surgical intervention may be required. The surgery is resorted to when there is no other choice. Although most doctors prescribe a medical method of treatment or physiotherapy and therapeutic gymnastics.
Any physical activity, whether it is sports, work, coupled with physical labor or outdoor activities, requires a large amount of energy. This energy is consumed as fuel, supporting the human body, and makes it possible to perform many movements.
Specialized nutrition in recent years has turned into a kind of toy and fun for fitness profane. Glutamine, amino acids, proteins, creatine, etc. are just the tip of the iceberg. They are safe and proven over many years of experience additives. Taking them, even if you take into account the wrong dosage and frankly abuse, it’s difficult to harm yourself, but there is still a chance.
The first danger is the manufacturer. Today on the shelves of food supplements and sports nutrition stores you can find hundreds of packages and cans of various sizes with the logos of dozens of manufacturers flaunting on them. It will be incredibly difficult for an amateur fan to make a choice, because by the packaging or description it is not at all clear which company is better and safer, why one is more expensive than the other. The composition of low-quality additives may include heavy metals that are not excreted from the body: mercury, lead, arsenic. If you take supplements for a long time, the amount of these metals will increase, gradually causing administration and mechanically clogging the renal channels, liver channels and, thus, reducing the filtration efficiency of the body, which can also lead to mutations.
But what if an amateur decides to walk on the wild side and start taking anabolics or untested and banned drugs? Thanks to these products, muscles begin to grow very quickly and increase in size several times. This leads to stretching or even rupture of the dry and the link.
No less dangerous is the failure of the internal organs. According to the Institute for Diabetes, Digestive and Renal Diseases, the incidence of liver dysfunction in Americans taking dietary supplements increased by 13%, from 7% to 20%. After taking these products, stones or the development of osteoporosis may begin to form in the kidneys.
Improper nutrition can also disrupt the thyroid, pancreas, and adrenal glands. Excessive intake of supplements that stimulate muscle growth or weight loss and accelerate metabolism, leading to the fact that in some cases the production of adrenaline and norepinephrine stops, since it replaces the composition of the supplements.
Hormonal imbalance can cause the development of gynecomastia in men. The trigger of failure in the production of androgen and its replacement with estrogen in some cases is the reception of steroids by athletes. As a result, their breasts gradually turn into female breasts and the disorder is accompanied by a decline in sexual desire, erectile dysfunction, a decrease in the volume of the testicles, an increase in the size of the prostate and breast glands. The risk of developing breast cancer and prostate increases significantly.
In an effort to achieve noticeable results in a short period of time, due to their ignorance and ignoring safety rules due to an acute thirst for stormy emotions in life, people commit all kinds of stupid things. Their main difference from professionals who are seriously and responsibly approaching their occupation is inexperience and often unwillingness to learn and gain wisdom gradually. That is why, just starting doing any kind of sport, they plunge headlong into the heat.
Nutritional supplements, steroids and anabolics, excessive and unusual physical activity, inexperience and inattention while practicing a dangerous sport - this is a standard list of mistakes made by many who decided to start working out.
On behalf of the editors, we want to wish you to be aware about the activity you are engaging to. Do not forget that you have one life. Do not spoil it with a fleeting impulse to get everything at once. The harm done to yourself by yourself can be irreparable. May wisdom be with you.
