Mitochondria

I recently read an article about the Mitochondria in our muscles and how they work.  Apparently, when you stop working out for a long period of time, your body lowers the amount of mitochondria it needs to the bare minimum.  When you start to work out again, your body hasn't gotten used to the idea of needing more mitochondria to keep up.  This is why you feel tired and worn out after your first workouts....



You'll need to get over the workout hump and probably keep it up for a few weeks or more.  Then, and only then, will your body start to supply more mitochondria for your new fit and active lifestyle. 






I guess in the past 10 years, I still haven't quite gotten over the hump....


The End.  :)
