6 Negative Effects On Your Body When You Stop Working Out For 2 Weeks

With winter finally coming to an end, we have reached a stage where our desire to workout has also diminished. There is no doubt that you’d rather go outside and have brunch with friends and have a good time instead of spending hours indoor working out. I mean, how long you can stand seeing the same people sweat it all out as you work tirelessly for that perfect body.

Despite being a regular gym goer, we tend to get distracted by little things like brunch and doing other things instead of hitting the gym. Sometimes we take two weeks break due to the winter holidays and that can affect the body in a lot of ways. These two weeks can make us feel lazy and we end up losing our motivation to go to the gym.

While two week may seem like a small time for us, it has huge impacts on our body. Going two weeks without exercising makes a difference physically, mentally and even emotionally. So if you need motivation as to not skip working out for  two weeks, then here are the top 6 reasons for you;

Well, you don’t need to wait two weeks for your body to start changing. Skip working out for three days and your body will start undergoing changes. While you won’t be able to notice these changes, you can certainly feel them. You may have a bit of trouble slipping into your jeans after partying so much. But at the same time you will feel that you lost a bit of strength. Your muscle mass will start to decrease and the body will burn less fat.

There is nothing to freak out about though. If you skip your morning run, you won’t lose the defined legs at once but they will gradually lose their shape. Another part of your body, like the abdominal area, may lose its shape sooner. Nobody is asking you to workout 5 days a week, but the regular workout is beneficial for both a healthy body and lifestyle.
