Does Exercise Make You Lazier Outside of the Gym?

Is it possible that your exercise routine is far from invigorating and actually leaves you lethargic for the rest of the day? The Daily Mail investigated a study that reached this counterintuitive conclusion.  Researchers attempted to argue that the spike in activity from a workout is offset by a dramatic decline in activity and productivity over the remainder of the day. 

This may appear to be bad news for fitness warriors who slot an exercise program into their busy schedules. In fact, this study is not a case for a sedentary lifestyle but a cautionary tale. The type of exercise matters more than duration. It is for this reason that I recommend high-intensity interval training (HIIT)

One of the primary reasons people say they don’t exercise is they don’t have time, but there are many ways to incorporate it into your daily schedule. Compelling and ever-mounting research shows that the ideal form of exercise consists of short intense bursts followed by a brief recovery period.

How you fuel your body may be responsible for flagging post-workout energy levels. Poor eating habits can undermine your vitality and leave you depleted. The first step toward a better diet is to consume only nourishing whole foods and avoid anything processed.  

Intermittent fasting is another easily adopted lifestyle change. This involves restricting your meals to a six- to eight-hour window and to refrain from eating within three hours of bedtime. Which two meals you prefer are up to you; let your body, and your lifestyle, including your workout schedule, be your guide.
