COULD A GYM SESH SEND YOU TO HOSPITAL?
Although exercise is linked to a buffet of benefits (from improved mental health to a reduced risk of chronic disease, for a start), getting your sweat on can lead to harm.
Recent US data on exercise-related hospital visits found that one in three accidents occurred on a treadmill or while out running (resulting in broken bones, head injuries and strained muscles). Even exercise balls and skipping ropes can lead to mishaps.
Given that not exercising can result in long-term health troubles (such as increased risk of heart disease), it’s essential to keep moving, so injury-proof your workout with these tips from personal trainer Steph Carter.
