Have you ever been exercising or even taking a longer walk and noticed your muscle trembling? As strange as it may seem at first, know that this is a normal reaction in our body! Although this is the right way to perform better, for those who are looking to strengthen themselves and build body resistance, it is important to be careful. Discover how the body works at these times and why the muscle trembles during exercise!

Involuntary muscle contraction can be a consequence of excessive physical effort

When the body is subjected to a constant training routine, the intensity of the exercises tends to increase as the practitioner evolves in carrying out the activities. In these cases, the muscles receive stimuli that require more and more physical effort. Involuntary muscle contraction is a response to the body’s exhaustion in the face of such massive energy depletion. Although this is normal, it is important to be careful not to overload your muscles and end up causing an injury.

Muscle spasms are physiological responses to adrenaline in the blood

Whether you are a beginner or even more advanced in physical practice, the effect of overexertion is the same for both situations: shivering and muscle spasms. However, there is another reason that can justify this muscle reaction.

Physical activities in general stimulate the production and release of adrenaline in the body. This hormone works as a great source of energy as it speeds up the heart rate and increases blood flow. In this way, the brain and muscles receive more and more oxygen and sugar portions, which become fuel and enhance the body’s movements.

When adrenaline levels are high, it is normal for muscles to be activated involuntarily to release accumulated energy. It is worth noting that a few minutes of stretching can help reduce the body’s fast pace. By stimulating blood circulation, they help to reduce adrenaline concentrations in the body, in addition to strengthening joints and increasing limb flexibility.

Frequent tremors can signal high levels of stress

If you live a healthy life and your muscle trembles during exercise, it means it is building strength and endurance. However, if you suffer from nutritional deficiencies, drink little water, and live under constant stress from lack of sleep and excessive tiredness, spasms can pose problems. Emotional issues and mind overload can harm the health of the body and provoke different reactions. If you are suffering from shivering without training, it is crucial to investigate why.

Good nutrition, hydration and a good night’s sleep help to reduce the frequency of spasms

The ideal for those who have a physical activity routine is to compensate for energy consumption with a balanced diet, plenty of fluid intake and rest. Eating well and hydrated with a minimum of 2 liters of water a day is essential to keep the body balanced, as well as having a good night’s sleep also helps to ensure the proper functioning of the body and positive results in training.

Even if you do not practice physical activities, a healthier and more balanced life will help reduce the tremors and spasms caused by stress. Be sure to see a doctor to understand what might be happening!
