At one time or another, every work-out enthusiast is faced with Superman/Wonderwoman bodybuilding syndrome. The symptoms entail over exerting making basic work-out blunders. From over eating ‘health fitness foods to bypassing the cool down,’ these mistakes can become on-going atrocities.
Target the Right Heart Rate
Generally, Superman/Wonderwoman syndrome transpires when an exerciser work out above the safe cardiovascular ratio. Exercising excessively fatigues the body too rapidly. Alternatively, when the body is exerted below the regular rate it is not physiologically challenged to compel stamina or endurance. To determine your appropriate heart rate refer to a chart. Then while you are exercising, monitor your heart rate 10-minutes into the fitness regimen.
Pace your Weight-lifting
Just because you have been working out for 4-months, it does not mean that you have the super human strength to hurl a 500-iron weight over your head. Quite often, avid weight lifters may forget about using momentum during weight-lifting.
To avoid the Superman/Wonderwoman syndrome, remain true to the form of each exercise. During bodybuilding do not swing the weight. Accelerating the weight lift through the movement does not do anything for the muscle. Instead, slow down the momentum in controlled movements. However, if you are unable to maintain the correct form, reduce the weight and start over.
Regardless of how long you have been working out, neglecting to perform a cool down is a serious blunder. It makes the joints more susceptible to pain or injury. To enable the blood flow to return to a normal state, use five to seven minutes to walk off the elevated intensity. Moreover, it will allow the heart rate an opportunity to recover. Not to mention, it will better prepare the body for the next training program and alleviate the possibility of dizziness or faintness from abrupt exercise cessation.
