Cutting Edge Exercise and the Benefits That It Provides

May 17, 2022 By admin 0

This article is written for those of you out there who think that exercise is a four-letter word! You have either had a bad experience which made it painful, you think that it takes too much of your time, or you just plain don’t like it. It’s exciting to me that you are reading this article to learn more about just how critical exercise is as it relates to your health and longevity. Is there anyone reading this article today who doesn’t want to live longer and at a higher quality of life? I didn’t think so, but I was just making sure that I was writing this for the proper group of people!

There is so much information out there about exercise that it can often be overwhelming. Some of it is good information, but somehow we have made it more complicated than it needs to be. I would like to begin by spending some time laying the groundwork for the importance of exercise. The benefits of exercise are detailed in the latest available research on the subject. More importantly, I want to break it down for you so that you can use this information immediately in your everyday life. What benefit is information that is left without being put to good use- it’s virtually useless isn’t it? I don’t want that to be the case for any of you reading this article.

It has been proven that you can’t get the results that will change your life without having simple things that anyone can do to improve their level of health and wellness. One of the most important of these is the benefit of exercise. I have included a short list to name just a few of the benefits of exercise. You can decide for yourself whether it is worth adding into your daily routine:

1. It increases lean body mass and lowers your body fat

2. Ligaments and tendons are thicker, larger, and stronger

3. Bone density and calcium absorption improves

4. You need a lot less air to do the same amount of work- being träning out of breath after walking up a flight of stairs is evidence of low aerobic power and a poor state of fitness

5. The heart becomes larger and stronger- it is provided with a greater number of blood vessels

6. It increases the amount of blood pumped with each beat which reduces how hard the heart has to work both at rest and with exercise

7. Blood vessels to the muscles increase in size, number and elasticity

8. It eliminates the needless blood vessels to fat as it is lost which decreases blood pressure

9. HDL cholesterol increases which prevents hardening of the arteries

10. Red blood cells increase which improves the oxygen carrying capacity

11. Exercise decreases the chance for a blood clot or thrombosis

12. It improves the body’s ability to use the oxygen that it is provided

13. It increases your overall blood volume

14. It improves the nerve and hormonal balance in the body, especially to the heart which conserves oxygen for the heart itself

15. It increases the mitochondria function which burns the fuel for the body more efficiently

16. It decreases body weight which decreases the “load” on the body

17. It enhances the function of the immune system and overall physiology

18. It increases muscle mass which burns more fat for fuel more efficiently

19. It slows the aging process in all of the organs and muscles of the body

20. You look better and younger and you feel better in a short time

Like I mentioned earlier, we’ve turned exercise into a four-letter word haven’t we? We have all come up with the reasons that we can’t exercise even though we know that we will not be as healthy without it. Unfortunately, we tend to create all the reasons that we cannot do something instead of just getting started. What do you call all the reasons that you can’t do something even though you really can? Excuses! Isn’t it true that we would all tend to avoid exercise if we could? It is human nature not to work any harder than we think we have to, but I am telling you that from this point on, you have to exercise or you will not live as long or with the quality of life that you deserve. What you have done up to this point is not as important as what you will start doing from now on! Where do you want to be 10-20 years from now? The choice is yours to make.
