You may have just started to get up with the heat of your workouts but your body is rebelling against your will. When you have just finish a set of lunges and you’re starting to feel tired and lousy you will probably blame your body for the mess you’re up with. You have just felt the heat of your body while you’re jogging but you feel a painful streak in your legs and joints. You think that this whole painful mess in your legs, the fatigue you feel in your back and the craving of your stomach for some snacks was caused by the tiredness and the fatigue of your body, better not. Earlier scientist would have put all the blame that caused the painful feeling of your muscles and the tiredness of your body to energy depletion and build-up of lactic acids to the muscles. But recently, studies show that lactic acid actually helps the body by feeding your muscles while exerting the effort to achieve the women in you that you want to be. To simplify it, the lactic acid released while you are doing workouts was really a help to your muscles.
The question; what is the real thing that causes you much trouble in your fitness workouts. And to answer that question, researchers from the University of Wisconsin proved that it is the brain which inhibits and regulates everything aside from your will and your body limit. It turns out that the researches concludes that the brain can control the electrical input to be given while you are on a workout, thus, when the brain decrease the electrical input allowed to a certain workout, your performance will also be affected making you feel tired or feel fatigue in your muscles. The brain can really control the input energy exerted to initiate movement. The brain does not simply do this without any purpose. Its goal was to protect you from damage when you are over exercised just like when you try to run a few more laps then you think you may finish it but your brain gets in the way. Your brain thinks that trying a few more set of lunges may have cause you trouble or simply just the brain do not have any data of what will happen to you if you increase your effort to your workouts with a few more sets. When your brain enter to that point, that’s when you’re going to start feeling tired or hungry.
But you can find a solution to that problem. One key is to train it to think “Your near there” or “Your almost there” so that when you are in your workout you will not stop while in the middle. According to the studies, exposing your muscles to fatigue in a systematic and progressive manner stabilizes your brain to the extra effort you are exerting to your workouts, making it at ease with the sudden improvements.
