Recent research conducted by a scientific team from the University of Lausanne, proved that excessive exercise does not give the desired result and only inhibit health. Training more than 14 hours per week negatively affect many organs and systems, writes The Telegraph. To prove their theory, the scientists conducted the study, which covered some 1,200 young people aged 16 to 20 years. Scientists were interested in their sport loads, performed in 2009 and 2010.
The study showed that the load average intensity was enhanced mood and self-esteem, whereas excessive strength training exercises led to constant tension, injury and inflammatory changes.
For objective measurements, the researchers used the BO3 system, which evaluates each system on a 25 point scale. The average healthy person on this system is around 17. Subjects were divided into groups depending on the amount of strength exercises. About one third of trained little, 40% worked from three to ten hours per week, 18% of the subjects practiced from ten to seventeen hours, and 5% was paid to their physical form more than seventeen hours.
Research has shown that people with excessive physical exertion twice as likely to have received a score less than 13 on the BO3 system. The good health and condition of organs and systems has been diagnosed in people who paid training no more than 14 hours weekly..
