Health Jargon: What Does 'Workout Fatigue' Mean?
Number #2 cause of workout fatigue: General poor health caused by factors like dehydration, lack of a good night’s sleep and disorders linked to any condition.
During an exercise session or sports event, a lot of sweating takes place to maintain the body’s core temperature. This leads to loss of the body’s fluids and electrolytes and if not controlled can lead to dehydration.
Also your body’s carbohydrate stores are depleted during exercise. Plain water can replenish the fluid lost during exercise but not the electrolytes and the carbohydrates. Water also gives a feeling of fullness and increases urine output.
Apart from this, a proper night’s rest also helps you in sailing through a tough workout. After an extremely intense workout, give your body time to rest and refuel before the next session.
Besides, if you are a cardiovascular disease patient, then the heart and lungs don’t get enough oxygen and blood to the body, thus causing feelings of fatigue, in addition to chest pain.
