Title: What Happens when you stop going to the Gym

(No Transcript)
What happens when you stop going to the gym?
  • Hitting the gym to get six pack abs or a flat,
    toned stomach has become a trend these days. One
    can easily find people doing cardio, strength
    training exercises and other exercises at the gym
    to look like their role model. Going to the gym
    and then seeing the body get transformed gives a
    great inner satisfaction to the people, however
    maintaining that body is quite difficult once you
    stop going to the gym.

Here are some after effects of leaving the gym
  • 1.It affects your strength
  • When you work out in the gym, you build up your
    strength by doing strength training exercises and
    taking protein. When you stop working out, you
    start losing your body strength and stamina
    slowly. In how much time will you notice your
    muscles losing its shape depend on for how long
    have you trained.
  • Once you stop going to the gym and are not doing
    engaged in any physical activity and are not
    taking enough protein, your muscles will start
    losing its thickness and will begin to lose its
    stamina. Also, you will feel tired after a little
    work. Doctors suggest that in some people, the
    strength starts declining after about two weeks
    of inactivity, while others notice their strength
    get diminished after about four weeks.

2.It affects your immunity
  • When people hit the gym, they eat a healthy,
    balanced diet and do regular exercise which
    builds their immune system and they seldom fall
    sick. Once you stop working out at the gym, you
    do not do rigorous exercise and also do not care
    much about what kind of food you are eating which
    makes your immunity system go back to the normal
    state. The best tip to maintain your immunity is
    doing regular exercise at home and eating a
    nutritious diet.

3.It affects your weight
  • One of the major side effects of leaving the gym
    is that you put on weight after you quit the gym.
    This does not happen because the muscles turn
    into fat, but because when you do a heavy workout
    at the gym, you burn calories and your metabolic
    rate increases which help the body to maintain an
    optimal weight.
  • But, when you stop working out, the body consumes
    less energy, which is why it begins converting
    the extra energy as fat. You leave doing
    exercises, but you are consuming the same amount
    of calories which you used to while you were
    working out, or maybe more which makes you put
    on weight as there is nothing to burn those extra

4.Effect on your mood
  • When you work out, you become a morning person.
    You wake up early, feel the fresh air and then
    hit the gym. You have a tight schedule to which
    you stick, and you start following healthy
    lifestyle habits. It also makes you productive,
    and you feel relaxed the whole day. Various
    researches done by psychologists suggest that
    exercise is helpful in terms of improving mood.
  • Studies suggest that exercising may cause your
    body to suppress the chemicals that make people
    feel depressed and increase the release of
    chemicals that reduce depression. That is why
    those who work out regularly have a bright smile
    on their face. Those who are gym addicts know
    that experience when they feel light, joyous and
    strong post workout. When you stop hitting the
    gym, you lose these benefits. Many people feel
    irritated and annoyed after they leave the gym.
    Also, the self-esteem of an individual may lower
    down if he or she starts putting on weight.

5.It affects your heart health
  • A person who exercises regularly has a healthy
    heart. When you exercise regularly, your heart
    functions properly and remains healthy, but once
    you stop going to the gym, your heart health
    starts declining.  A Higher level of athlete
    loses their cardiovascular health faster, and a
    low-level athlete will be able to retain their
    health of their heart for a longer period of time.

6.Effect on Blood Pressure
  • When you stop doing exercises at the gym, your
    blood pressure level might elevate as the blood
    vessels will instantly adapt. When you workout,
    your blood vessels work efficiently, but once you
    stop the arteries and veins become stiff
    affecting the blood pressure.

How to Overcome the After Effects of Leaving the
  • If you want to have a fit and healthy body, then
    leaving the gym is not a good option. But, there
    comes a time in everyones life when they are
    left with no alternative, rather than leaving the
    gym and working out at home. In that case, you
    must follow some guidelines to stay away from the
    side effects of leaving the gym. You should keep
    eating healthy food and doing exercises on a
    regular basis. Keep a check on your calorie
    intake continue taking nutrients, do pushups and
    sit-ups if you do not want to increase weight.
    Just remember that you are leaving the gym, but
    not a healthy lifestyle. Eat a balanced diet and
    be physically active, and you will not miss your
    gym anymore!
