The expert spoke about the pit­falls of a pumped-up body.

Soon it will be very warm, and every­one will see the con­se­quences of numer­ous hol­i­days — extra pounds. To pre­vent this from hap­pen­ing, many pre­pare in advance to demon­strate a toned body and ath­let­ic form. But it’s one thing to look slim, and anoth­er thing to get fix­at­ed on a sports fig­ure, risk­ing “over-pump­ing.”

It’s worth think­ing about whether you real­ly need all 8 cubes to be vis­i­ble, and the weight of your mus­cles makes it dif­fi­cult to move. Psy­chol­o­gist Veroni­ka Tyu­ri­na told the Cham­pi­onship about the “sub­tleties” of jocks and the dan­gers to their health.

What is the danger for jocks?

The fact is that “pumped up” ath­letes often expe­ri­ence pain and spasms in the mus­cles, and the flex­i­bil­i­ty of the body is notice­ably reduced. Often these prob­lems are sim­ply ignored. In advanced cas­es, blood cir­cu­la­tion and oxy­gen flow are dis­rupt­ed, and spasms become chron­ic. In addi­tion, over­train­ing affects men­tal health.

“Mus­cu­lar imbal­ance, and at the same time poor cir­cu­la­tion, cre­ates an inhibito­ry effect,” says Veron­i­ca Tyu­ri­na.

Peo­ple who strive to be “the most pumped up” may devel­op a num­ber of prob­lems:

  • Slow­ness;
  • Apa­thy;
  • Nar­row­ing the range of inter­ests;
  • Obses­sion with appear­ance;
  • Depres­sive expe­ri­ences;
  • Eat­ing dis­or­ders;
  • For­ma­tion of neu­rot­ic char­ac­ter traits;
  • Hor­mon­al imbal­ances;
  • Unsta­ble emo­tion­al back­ground.

Is it better to be overweight?

The oth­er pole of the prob­lem is peo­ple with obe­si­ty. Of course, it is impos­si­ble to deter­mine which is more harm­ful to health. Excess weight also caus­es a lot of prob­lems for peo­ple. Start­ing from low self-esteem to seri­ous ill­ness­es. For exam­ple, dis­or­ders of the most impor­tant body sys­tems:

  • Car­dio­vas­cu­lar;
  • Res­pi­ra­to­ry;
  • Mus­cu­loskele­tal;
  • Hor­mon­al.

How­ev­er, one thing can be said: any extremes, be it over­train­ing or obe­si­ty, are unnat­ur­al con­di­tions for the body. Over time, all this leads to dis­as­trous health con­se­quences. Remem­ber that every­thing is good in mod­er­a­tion.
