Too Much Exercise Is Bad For You, Here’s Why

Over-exercising especially in a short span of time can have an adverse effect on our bodies.

In a bid to lose weight quickly, we tend to overtrain which could affect the health negatively. So, it is important to recognise the signs of the negative effects of exercise.

Dr. Rohit Malhotra, Physiotherapist with the Delhi based Sri Balaji Action Medical Institute explains how over-exercising or overtraining can cause health problems.

Here they are:

More Prone To Injuries: When you exercise excessively your body becomes more prone to injuries. Muscle soreness is very common when exercising a lot. Your body needs to rest. If you exercise a lot, it can lead to strained ligaments and tendons. These put your bones at risk for fractures. Too much exercise can also harm your body tissues.

Muscle Mass: You tend to lose muscle mass and your body suffers from nutritional deficiency. You curb your body’s need for nutrition by excessive exercise and dieting, which can have an adverse effect on your overall health.

Weakened Immune System: When you exercise a lot your body’s immune system weakens. You get more prone to viruses and colds. Exercise affects your body and leaves it exhausted. Furthermore, your weakened immune system is not efficient enough to kill bacteria or other illnesses.

Eating Disorders: People who are addicted to over exercising and have just weight loss in mind are prone to developing various eating disorders. Disorders like bulimia and anorexia can affect these people because the main cause for these disorders is compulsive exercising.

Sleeping Disorders: People face this problem because their body feels very tired, lethargic and drained out. They have difficulties in sitting still. Everything seems heightened and the body aches because of excessive exercise.

Cessation of Menstrual Cycle: Many studies show that female athletes who face extensive training suffer from bone loss. This state is called amenorrhea and if it persists for a long time, then it is difficult to cure. Other factors like changes in diet, excessive weight loss and stress can also cause amenorrhea.

Unrepentant: Man jailed for stealing Mountain of Fire church offering…
by Ogunsakin oluwaseun

An Abuja man has been sentenced to spend a year in prison after being found guilty of stealing from a church.

Ademola Ayeni, 36, had the sentenced passed down on him yesterday after he was convicted on charges of theft for making away with the offerings of the church members.

Ayeni had been previously convicted of the same offence after he stole from the same church last year.

The Magistrate, Khadijat Mustapha, convicted Ayeni, 36, after he pleaded guilty to the offence of theft and did not give the convict an option of fine.

Mustapha said the sentence would serve as a deterrent to those who might want to engage in similar acts.

Earlier, the Prosecutor, Sergeat Simon Ibrahim, told the court that Ojo Oyeyemi of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Church, Utako, reported the matter at the Utako Police Station on November 15.

Ibrahim said the convict criminally trespassed into the church just after they had concluded church service and stole an offering bag containing N50,800.

He said the convict also stole Zenith Bank and Fidelity Bank cheques of N150,000 and N50,000 respectively.

The prosecutor told the court that the convict was a habitual offender and had stolen from the same church in 2012.

Ibrahim said: “He stole from the same church last year.
“He was charged before a different court and was sentenced to one year imprisonment. “In fact, he was just released from prison just last week. “I don’t think he is ready to change.”

Truck kills pregnant woman, several others in ghastly Oshodi accident

A truck belonging to Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Revival Church was involved in a ghastly accident that left many dead and several injured at the Oshodi area of Lagos yesterday.

The truck which was reportedly headed to Mile 2 experienced brake failure and crashed into people who were waiting for a bus at the Oshodi bus stop. The driver of the truck which was conveying sand immediately disembarked and fled but was arrested by policemen shortly thereafter.

Police Public Relations Officer, Ngozi Braide recounted the incident to reporters yesterday.

She said, “At exactly 12pm, a fatal motor accident occurred at Oshodi, Motor Park. When police officers from Makinde Division led by the Divisional Police Officer arrived at the scene, they discovered that it was caused by a tipper, which was carrying sand, along Apapa-Oshodi Expressway, inward Mile 2 service lane.

“The tipper, with number plate, JJJ824XD, owned by the Lords chosen Church, lost control due to a brake failure and ran into three stationary vehicles in the park. In the process, all the vehicles got damaged while five yet-to-be identified female pedestrians lost their lives.

“One of the deceased was a pregnant woman, whose foetus also gushed out, bringing the casualty figure to six in number. About five people were also injured and they are currently receiving treatment at LASUTH.

“We have apprehended the driver of the truck, whose name is Lawrence Nwaodu, 45 years. The four vehicles involved have been taken to LASTMA office, while calm has also returned in the area.
