Nowadays, many people like to exercise, but after exercising, besides paying attention to rest and replenishing water, there are some things that you can’t do. So what can't be done after fitness? Let's take a look at it with the editor.
1. Don't squat to rest
Many people like to squat and take a break after exercising. They squat or sit down when they feel tired after the exercise. They think that this saves effort and can rest. In fact, this is a wrong approach. If you squat down and rest immediately after fitness exercise, it will affect the blood circulation of the lower limbs, deepen the fatigue of the body, and cause gravity shock in severe cases. Therefore, after each exercise, you should adjust your breathing rhythm and perform some low-intensity activities, such as walking slowly, doing relaxation, or simply taking a deep breath to encourage blood from the limbs to return to the heart to help restore physical fitness and eliminate fatigue.
2. Don't be greedy for cold drinks
Exercise often makes people sweat profusely, especially in summer. With the loss of a lot of water, people will always feel thirsty and dry after exercise. Most young people like to buy some cold drinks to quench their thirst. However, after exercise, the body's digestive system is still in a suppressed state, and digestive function is low. If you drink a lot of cold drinks for a moment of cooling and quench your thirst, it is easy to cause gastrointestinal cramps, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and induce gastrointestinal diseases. Therefore, do not greedy a lot of cold drinks immediately after exercise. At this time, you should drink some plain water or salt water in moderation.
During exercise, especially during intense exercise, the motor nerve center is in a highly excited state. Under its influence, the parasympathetic nervous system that manages the activities of internal organs will strengthen the inhibitory effect on the activities of the digestive system. At the same time, during exercise, the blood of the whole body will be redistributed, and will flow more concentratedly to the moving organs, while the supply of various organs in the abdominal cavity is relatively reduced. This will weaken the peristalsis of the gastrointestinal tract, greatly reduce the secretion of various digestive glands, and return to normal 20-30 minutes after the exercise. If you eat immediately after exercise, it will increase the burden on the digestive system, cause digestive disorders, and even induce a variety of diseases.
4. Don't take a bath immediately
Many people take a bath immediately after exercising, thinking that this can both decontaminate and relieve fatigue. In fact, this approach is not scientific. Because during exercise, the blood flowing to the muscles increases, and other organs decrease accordingly. After stopping exercise, this situation will continue for a while. If you take a bath immediately at this time, the blood will not be enough to supply other vital organs. For example, the heart and brain will have insufficient blood supply, then people will feel dizzy, nauseated, and fatigued. Severe ones can also induce other diseases, so special attention should be paid.
