Health Tip: Taking Exercise to the Extreme

Health Tip: Taking Exercise to the Extreme


(HealthDay News) -- There's nothing wrong with practicing healthy behaviors in moderation, and exercise is no exception. But you can overdo it.

The Nemours Foundation mentions these warning signs of being a compulsive exerciser:

  • Refusing to skip a workout even when tired, injured or sick.
  • Exercising out of obligation, rather than enjoyment.
  • Doubling the length of a workout after missing one.
  • Obsessing over weight and burning calories, along with weight loss.
  • Increasing exercise to make up for eating more.
  • Prioritizing exercise above seeing friends and family, and participating in social activities.
  • Allowing intensity and frequency of exercise to affect self-esteem.
  • Being unable to find satisfaction in physical accomplishments.
