1. Don’t stop suddenly to rest
In the past, every time in physical education class, if there was a running competition or training, the teacher would remind you not to sit down and rest after running, and to jog for a period of time before stopping. Do you have this experience?
If you stop and rest immediately after strenuous exercise, the rhythmic contraction of the muscles will stop, and a large amount of blood that originally flowed into the muscles cannot flow back to the heart through the muscle contraction, resulting in lower blood pressure, temporary brain ischemia, and cause palpitation, shortness of breath, and dizziness. Symptoms such as dizziness, pale complexion, and even shock and fainting. Therefore, after each exercise, you should adjust your breathing rhythm and perform some low-calorie activities, such as walking slowly, doing a few relaxation exercises, or simply breathing deeply to encourage the blood from your limbs to flow back to your heart.
2. Do not drink a lot of water
There is a plot in a TV series. A General has been on his way, who is too thirsty, and he goes through an old man’s thatched cottage to find water. The old man filled the General with a bowl of water and grabbed a handful of grass in the water. The General was angry, but he was so thirsty that he could only drink while blowing the grass. The old man’s approach was actually to save the General.
It is not advisable to drink a lot of water after exercise, especially after strenuous exercise. Drinking a lot of water will reduce the salt content in the blood. It is prone to muscle cramps, and even cause headaches, vomiting, and other diseases. Moreover, if you drink too much water at one time, the stomach and intestines will feel uncomfortable fullness. If you lie down and rest, your heart and lung activity will be affected by squeezing the diaphragm.
Therefore, after exercise, if you are thirsty, you should not drink too much water at one time. Instead, you should drink less frequently.
3. Don’t pass the step of relaxation activities
Have you ever experienced that when you do not exercise often, you suddenly start a strenuous exercise, and then your body will be sore the next day? This feeling will be much better if you perform a proper relaxing massage after exercise. . .

Then the immune function will decline, leading to colds, diarrhea, asthma, and other diseases.
5. Don’t take a bath immediately
After exercising, many people would like a hot bath immediately, which can not only wash away the sweat on the body but also relieve physical fatigue. A hot bath is definitely the best choice. In fact, this view is wrong.
This is because when we exercise, the blood flow rate in the body will increase, and the heartbeat will also increase with the exercise. So if we take a hot bath immediately, the blood in our muscles and skin will continue to increase, which will lead to Insufficient blood supply to other organs in the body leads to hypoxia in the brain.

8. Don’t eat a lot of sugar
Eating too many sweets after exercise will consume a large amount of vitamin B1 in the body, and people will feel fatigued, loss of appetite, etc., which will affect the recovery of physical strength. Therefore, after strenuous exercise, it is best to eat more foods containing vitamin B1, such as vegetables, liver, eggs, and so on.
9. Don’t be greedy for cold drinks
After exercise, people will sweat, but at this time the human digestive system is still in a suppressed state and the digestive function is low. At this time, you are greedy for a lot of cold drinks, which can easily cause gastrointestinal cramps, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and other diseases. Therefore, don’t be greedy for a lot of cold drinks immediately after exercise, it is appropriate to add a small amount of plain water or saltwater.
10. Do not drink alcohol
