There may be long term health risks and issues with Adele’s intensive workout routine.
Adele, who’s 33 years old, revealed to Vogue that she has now become “addicted” to exercise “two to three times a day.” A lot of medical experts and studies say that subscribing to an extreme fitness regimen and working out a lot can have adverse effects on muscles, joints and immune system.
“Maintaining a moderate exercise routine is an essential component of leading a healthy lifestyle,” WebMD chief medical officer John Whyte told The Post. “But working out two to three times a day is way too much.”
Excessive exercise often results in “a plethora of overuse injuries,” according to Whyte.
“When we work out, we’re putting stress on our muscles, bones and organs,” he said. “And if we don’t give those parts of our body a chance to heal after use, their function can begin to deteriorate.”
Serial exercising can also decrease the body’s immune function, he said.
“When you’re overdoing it at the gym, it stresses your body and muscles,” Whyte explained.
“Your body then produces cortisol in response to that chronic stress,” he added. “And elevated levels of cortisol can suppress the immune system’s ability to ward off disease.”
However, in the case of the “Hello” harmonizer, her newfound love of physical fitness has helped her lose 100 pounds in the last two years, and she attributes her emotional well-being to her obsession with working out.
“[The gym] became my time,” Adele told Vogue, adding that she did not follow any special diets, despite reports that she was on the sirtfood diet.
Instead, she follows a strict cardio and strength-training routine under the guidance of Gregg Miele, a performance specialist and co-owner of the Heart & Hustle gym in New York.
Miele increased her workouts to multiple times a day at the singer’s request, despite her long-standing back issues caused by several slipped discs.
