Health Tip: Exercising Despite Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Start slowly so you don't overdo it

(HealthDay News) -- While chronic fatigue syndrome zaps your energy, regular exercise can help give you a boost.

The American Council on Exercise offers this advice:

  • Talk to your doctor about exercising safely.
  • Start your exercise program slowly, and gradually increase the intensity, duration and frequency of exercise.
  • As you get stronger, incorporate flexibility, cardiovascular and resistance training exercises.
  • Schedule a few minutes of rest after each short bout of exercise.
  • Begin and end each workout with gentle stretching.
