Hitting  the gym almost goes without saying in this day and age, when shaping up is the thing to do. But if  the you already have the virus, then you might also wonder how many days you can skip going to the gym, and still have an envying physical condition.

According to health experts, the human body will quickly adapt to new conditions, and will operate changes in a matter of days after settling for a new lifestyle. When you take up exercising, the first organ that will perform better is the heart, which will pump at a slower rate, due to the higher amount of blood in your organism. When physical activity is curtailed, the human heart has to adjust to a lower blood volume, thus increasing its rate by 4 to 15 beats per minute.

As a general rule, the more you train the more your organism tends to stay in the same shape for a longer time. The best example in this regard is what happens to professional athletes, who still display a very good physical conditions months, even years after they have  retired.

Normally, the first signs of your body going back to hibernation will show after 7 to 10 days after you stop exercising.

But exercising is not only about the physical condition, it also plays a crucial role in a person’s mental wellbeing. The chemicals released during exercising are linked to a good mood and, according to some specialists, may even help  in combating depression. This is mainly attributed to dopamine, a chemical released in the organism during times of great physical strains. For vigorous athletes, a sudden activity stop,  may lead in a drop of dopamine levels, causing feelings of nervousness and, even light depression.
