Warning signs to look out for

The netizen also shared a photo of the optimal heart rate one should have based on their age, adding that paying attention and controlling it is vital when exercising.

“Exceeding the maximum heart rate during exercise can be very dangerous, and pain is an important mechanism for the body to signal danger.

“Although muscle soreness is normal, if you experience sharp pain or numbness during exercise, you should be particularly careful,” cautioned the netizen.

The netizen also urged those suffering from diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure to stop exercising immediately should they experience breathlessness, cold sweat, or blurry vision.

If they still feel uncomfortable after a short break, they should seek medical attention immediately.
