The benefits of medium intensity over high intensity exercise

In the fitness industry today we are told that you must do high intensity training or heavy lifting in order to feel better and get in shape, and quite honestly, that is what I taught and believed myself for most of my adult life and fitness career. But today after much time and experience I no longer feel this is the only way! Let me explain why: When I got sick with fibromyalgia and fatigue, those types of workouts left me crashing for days afterwards. I knew that exercise was vital for my healing process, but most routines I found seemed to make me feel worse. So I resorted to doing easy stretching workouts and light walking, but those did not help me get back into shape and they really left me wanting something more! Since that time, after years of research and trial & error, I have designed my own routines that provided what I was looking for, and the results were AMAZING! Not only did I start to feel better, I even kept weight off easier than when I was doing high intensity workouts, because I was much less inflamed or in pain! 

It was at this point I knew that I had stumbled on to something profound that needed to be shared! 

Many people who pushed themselves to do strenuous workouts (especially when they were already tired) spiked their stress hormone, cortisol, too much, which contributed to their adrenals being overly taxed, which then led to increased fatigue, weight gain (especially belly fat), inflammation, and pain. Basically the type of exercising they were doing was more harmful than good.

STUDies ARE NOW PROVING THE BENEFITS OF Moderate amounts of medium intensity exercise outweigh high intensity exercise.

Here are some benefits of working out at medium intensity levels:

  • It gets your lymphatic system moving, helping to prevent inflammatory diseases and decreases the risk of irregular heartbeat that can lead to heart failure and a stroke.

  • It rejuvenates your body while reducing the stress hormone, cortisol, preventing unnecessary fatigue and belly fat long term! 

  • It is less draining and challenging on your body, allowing for a faster recovery time, less chances of unnecessary pain and injury, and more energy reserves for the rest of your day so you can get more accomplished.

  • It is super effective because it still challenges your muscles, keeping them toned and working at their fullest capacity!

So, although high intensity exercise can have some benefits in limited amounts for healthy people, it can be very harmful to others, especially those dealing with a chronic illness. So if you don’t feel good from high intensity workouts, then I recommend to listen to your body and do what feels good, but also challenges you. Give my free, medium intensity routines a try and see how you look and feel after a few weeks of doing them consistently. They are easy to follow, low-impact, and fun, so they should help make you feel better in no time!
