When it comes to sport, the most important thing is obviously to choose a physical activity or a sport that you enjoy! Individual or collective, indoors or outdoors, whatever our level, we must like it. It is also important to vary the activities and not always do the same circuit or the same activity.

Is too long without sport a problem?

If you haven't exercised for "too" long and you start up again at too fast a pace, this can indeed be a problem. We can then fear joint pain, tendonitis, a fracture, or others.

First of all, you have to build up and do short sports sessions of around twenty minutes maximum or do low intensity sessions. The recovery must be gradual and it is important not to “go faster than the music” as they say. After a few weeks, the body gets used to it and we want more, so it's time to set achievable goals! Yes, having a challenge to take on is good but you have to know how to be reasonable and take it step by step so as not to hurt yourself.
