The Lifelong Benefits of Exercise
Everyone likes to look attractive, especially during the summer months when bathing suits abound. While many individuals begin working out primarily for aesthetic reasons, it's important to keep in mind that a dedication to exercise can also offer lifelong health benefits.
Exercise consists of three forms; aerobic, anaerobic, and stretching. Utilizing each type is crucial to maintaining both physical and mental health throughout one's life.
Aerobic exercise, also known as cardio, is the rhythmic use of large muscles for long durations, while maintaining 60-80% of your maximum heart rate. Swimming, running, biking, and walking are all great examples. The result of aerobic exercise is a conditioning of the lungs and heart, increased energy and stamina, a leaner body mass, and a reduction of tension and anxiety.
If aerobic exercise consists of moderate intensity over long durations, anaerobic exercise is characterized by short bursts of high intensity. Weightlifting, racquetball, sprinting, and downhill skiing fall into this category. Anaerobic exercise not only increases strength but prevents naturally occurring bone loss. It also increases the body's metabolism while in a resting state, resulting in the burning of more calories.
Stretching can be its own activity, but it's also incorporated into many forms of exercise. Yoga, dance, and the various martial arts are just a few examples. Stretching keeps the entire body supple, providing lifelong flexibility and range of motion.
The idea is to incorporate all three forms of exercise into a regular schedule. The key to doing so is finding activities which you enjoy, ensuring greater dedication. Aside from the countless physical benefits, exercise is also known to release endorphins within the brain. The resulting relaxed state of mind and overall happiness are a perfect accompaniment to a fit body.
