Too Much Exercise

by James Adrian


      Extreme exercise can actually do more harm than good. This statement may seem ridiculous to many who believe that more is always better when it comes to exercise, but a convincing case is made by research cardiologist and a former elite athlete Dr. James O'Keefe in his website and video.

      Excessive weight training can also lead to heart problems. See this article on lifting heavy weights.

      Accumulated scaring of heart muscle and hardening of arteries has been associated with building extreme endurance. Moderation is important. In the future, it should be possible to specify more exactly what the limits of exercise should be.
