Signs That Our Workout Is Not Working


Some Signs That Our Workout Is Not Working

There are a lot of problems that we can experience when we exercise regularly, among them is the fact that our workout may not be working for us anymore. However, we often fail to see this and we trust what we have done before. This blog will look into some sure signs that our workout is simply not working for us at the moment.

1. One of the major signs of a workout not working is us wanting to leave the gym (or finish our workout). If our workout is going well we will get a great feeling from endorphins being released. However, if we cannot wait to finish then we are getting bored of the workout – time to change it up.

2. Another major sign is if we are feeling the exercises in places that we should not be. Joint pain, for example, is something that should not be ignored and if we are feeling pain then we should not continue.

3. The next sign is if we feel lousy after our workout. If, post-workout, we are feeling sick or have muscle cramps and other problems then we have done something wrong in the workout (probably pushed too far) and we should look to rectify the problem for our next workout.

4. Finally, if we appear to be weaker than the last time we worked out then something is going wrong. We should be progressing each time we work out so if we feel weaker then something needs addressing, such as rest time, nutrition and/or amount we are working out.

So, here are some key signs that suggest our workout is not working. When we begin to see these signs it is important to identify what we are doing wrong and sort it out so that we can continue to progress.
