What happens to your body when you stop exercising

Tech InsiderTITechScienceInnovationDigital cultureDesignTechnologyexercisefitnesswellnesshealthbiologybodybrain

For adults, the CDC recommends at least 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity and two, or more, days of muscle training per week. However, not everyone meets those standards. This is what happens to your body when you go from regularly exercise to none at all.

Use exercise as a drug and always keep some degree of residual fitness. Also don't have a routine that way you can never fail or find yourself easily clipping it out of your life. If you use substance drugs don't let them stop you. Mix in a drunk and/or high workout/run/bike ride. I'm not much of a pot head but physical activity is amazing when high. You have to use your mind to get into the zone but once you're there running for a straight hour while baked feels like 5 minutes.

Fat cells, those bastards
Brijesh
Damn I haven't excercised hard in 5yrs!. I ended up skinny. I do dedicated exercise 2-3 times a week (sweat out like soaking). I invariably walk 15-20 min 2 times everyday. Luckily my blood tests are normal. But I have a lot of stomach problems I feel like my stomach barely digestes & absorbs what I eat :(.

Just can't get myself to workout everyday :(.
