Especially concerning physical activity consulting your physician is important. This applies particularly to beginners and to people who have had a longer training break, to persons with health conditions or ailments. Also if risk factors such as smoking, high blood pressure, high serum lipid levels or diabetes are present, we strongly recommend a physical exam by a GP or specialist in sports medicine.
