Daily Exercise Inflammatory?

edited January 2016 in Physical Performance

Lately, I've been throwing in daily resistance exercise after my afternoon breakfast, and occasionally after dinner.  This usually makes me pretty thirsty as I soak up water with a bit of a 'pump' effect (I'm guessing due to inflammation in the stressed / fatigued muscles?)


Is this activity inflammatory?


Is it a bad idea to be eating high fat meals (50-100g of fat per meal) and then spiking blood pressure with heavy lifting and producing some level of muscle tissue inflammation (and doing this daily) ?


Going by feel, the exercise (only 15 to 20 minutes worth of activity) seems to give me increased energy without DOMS or soreness and seems to promote ideal body composition.

    I think the temporary inflammation you get from this exercise is rather beneficial and comes with the adaptation to the workout. It's most likely not permanent.

    It doesn't get easier... It's you who gets better.

    Success has a price, not a secret.

  • I can't think of a single scenario where the net effect of exercise isn't beneficial. Maybe running a marathon every day for a year. Other than that, you're good.
