Anything can be taken to unhealthy extremes, but I think you'd have to be really deep into this before it remotely becomes a problem.

As a racer cyclist, I work out (bike, and cross training at the gym) on average 90 minutes a day during the on-season, and I feel amazing.

I don't know...this kinda pisses me off as well. I get people around me telling me "be careful" and "take it slow", and I'm like fuck you. Actually I'm a little too beta to say that. I just shake my head and leave, or I stare for a few seconds at their fupa in disgust.

My favorite is when a ham tells me to not run so much since "it will destroy my knees" No, bitch. Big macs destroy knees. I can't help but laugh when hams try and give me advice.

I love the fatties telling me that squats and deadlifts are bad for your back and knees.... Everything is bad for YOUR back and knees, fatty, because you'e fat and you can't do it correctly.

I get that too and I probably don't bike nearly as much as you. I do about 70 miles a week at most lately. That's nothing, and it's even less than I was doing before, but I'm trying to keep exercise to a minimum lately because I'm actually worried about getting too lean (I refuse to eat fatty foods and I have to avoid straining an injury, so I can't strength train right now and it's driving me crazy).

Crabs in a bucket. If I get spotted on a bike only 5 miles from my house by one of my many fat neighbors, I'll get a speech about how I'm "pushing it too hard". Jealous fucking children is what they are. It doesn't matter how much exercise you are or aren't doing. If you're "too skinny" for their selfish ego to handle, they'll passive-aggressively try to sabotage you. Fuck 'em.

I used to work with bycycle delivery. I was riding my bike for like six hours total every day. These people all experience that their body is frail and so they project that experience onto oathers. They simply don't understand how much the body is capable of dealing with if you treat it well.

>It can also be working out every day for long periods of time (60+ minutes per day).

What ever happened to "Get out and play an hour a day."?

Well shit, it's 60 mins for kids and 30 mins for adults. Does anyone know why? As a grown-ass man, I feel like I can handle a workout better than a child.

Children are still developing and probably aren't gunna be powerlifting. Stuff like tag or frisbee is important for hand eye coordination and social development, too.

30min of directed moderate exercise a day. That's a minimum. That's also where the steep line of increasingly lower mortality begins to be less steep--the difference between exercising 0 min a day and 10 is huge, 10 and 30 is still really big but not a s huge, and 30 and hour is quite modest, if the point is health/longevity.

60min of active play is about the same as 30min of directed exercise.

Compulsive overexercising is a real thing and it's dangerous, but in these cases, we are talking about stuff like 6 hours a day of running solely for the sake of a 0 calorie or negative calorie net total. 60 minutes a day is just a good amount to be moving. Hell, I'm active for more like 2.5 hours a day. The difference is that I'm properly fed for my exercise. Athletes, too, are taking in proper nutrition which makes their massive activity safe and healthy.

The whole time I was reading this I was thinking "yeah, but what about professional athletes?" Cause you know, you can win an Olympic medal by only training for 45 minutes a day and then eating a donut. I know that overexercising is a dangerous disorder when paired with a lack of nutrition, but like anorexia, it doesn't effect nearly as many people as we are led to believe.

I'm a distance runner. When I'm training I work out for at least an hour a day, either running or strength. So endurance athletes are disordered now. I don't want to live in this world anymore where actually training for a race is considered EDNOS.

"Dont ya know running is bad for you" I don't understand why HAMS believe they can try and talk to us about fitness and running.

Oh I know. You know what else is bad for you? That 100 extra pounds you're carrying. At least, that's close to what I say when I hear that "bad for your knees" crap.

... and the article underneath is about the greatness of eating pop tarts.

Our bodies were made to move and to exert energy, not sit around and eat pop tarts and watch tv.

Yeah, I saw that part, too. Because exercise is so problematic but poptarts will save you!

They were promoting a fucking campaign by kellogs to sell more pop-tarts as a lifestyle food to college kids. WTF is this shit?

This article says I have disordered exercise issues - I workout 1+ hours a day about 6 days a week. Strange though, I enjoy it and it keeps me slim. Go figure.

60+ minutes a day is overexercising?

I was always under the impression that if you truly wanted to lose weight and be healthy you should get at least that a day. Obviously it depends on the exercise but really... eating disorder?
