We changed the weight. Sports stars who have significantly recovered after retirement
At the peak of their careers, athletes are forced to keep themselves in great shape. After leaving the big sport, not everyone succeeds in maintaining an ideal figure. We collected photos of athletes who gained extra pounds after retiring from sports, and told why this happens.

Which of them was able to keep fit? Not everyone succeeded.
Mike Tyson at the peak of his career looked great and was one of the most prominent heavyweights. Alas, after a series of troubles, the legendary boxer began to fail, and after the end of his career he became noticeably stout. Now Mike looks better, but there is no trace of the former relief.
Swimming is one of the most suitable sports for a perfectly built figure. Two-time Olympic champion butterfly swimmer Denis Pankratov, after completing his career, gained extra weight, reaching 150 kg. In an interview, Pankratov shared that he intends to get in shape. We wish him strength and good luck!

Why do athletes gain weight after retirement?
Overweight after the end of an athlete's career is not always associated with indiscriminate food. There may be several fa Doctors:
- Changing the rhythm of life
After completing a career, the athlete's body experiences stress, as he is used to receiving and spending more energy for many years and to be in good shape. When the intensity of training decreases, the body simply does not have time to reorganize, and an excess of calories occurs. All this is aggravated by the possible sedentary work, for example, of an official or a sports functionary, lack of a sports diet and exhausting workouts.
- Age-related changes
It's no secret that with age the body's metabolism slows down. An athlete by the end of his career will have to train even more than before to maintain the metabolic rate that was at its peak. Not everyone finds the strength and time for this. Another option is to limit yourself to food. Not everyone is capable of this either, especially when for the first time in 20-30 years you can not think about what and how much you eat.
- Tendency to be overweight
Many people have a physiological tendency to be overweight. Athletes are no exception. If during their professional career they had to struggle with this feature, then, having stopped performing at a high level, many find it difficult to control themselves.
