COGY is fun. Therefore, people tend to overdoing COGY, especially for the first week or 2.
Potential demerit of overdoing COGY:
-no energy left for housework etc
-hurting ankle, knee, hip etc
-hurting other parts of the body because of tiredness
How to avoid overdoing COGY:
-limit the every day use depending on the users ability/fitness.
-monitor the exercise time, and try stopping before feeling tired.
-observe knees. If knees start to fall inward/outward, then it is a signal of tiredness.
-observe ankles. If ankles start flipping, then it is a signal of tiredness.
-rocking yourself on COGY instead of pedalling, so that you can still keep on stimulating your legs without feeling tired.
