However, just like over-exercising can lead to certain health problems, there are some mistakes that people tend to make while exercising that can make them look older!

So, here are a few mistakes that need to be avoiding during exercising.


Mistake #1

Over-exercising and not getting even a single day of rest can increase the level of cortisol hormones in the body, which can cause premature ageing of cells.


Mistake #2

Marinating the wrong posture while exercising, especially while lifting weights can cause that part of the body to stretch and sag eventually, causing wrinkles.


Mistake #3

Skipping free exercises and cardio-training, and only weight lifting can also slow down your metabolic rate and cause early cell ageing.


Mistake #4

Just doing cardio workouts like running, jogging, cycling, etc, and not balancing it with weight lifting, can also make your skin saggy and look aged.


Mistake #5

Not performing abdominal exercises can also make you develop a paunch, which can surely make you look older than you are!


Mistake #6

Not stretching after a workout session can also strain your muscle tissues a lot and cause premature ageing of the muscular cells.


Mistake #7

Skipping high intensity training and doing very moderate exercises (unless you have health issues), it can slow down your metabolism and cause premature ageing of cells.
