Exercise is one of the most important parts of keeping your body healthy and lowers the risk of lifestyle disorders like diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure. It plays an important role in one’s life to keep a balance between mental, physical and emotional well-being.
There are several benefits of regular exercise and maintaining fitness:
Cardio exercise is any exercise that raises your heart rate. Let’s face it! Our bodies were made to be in motion; and we all know that to keep our muscles in shape, we need to move them. This movement makes them strong; and stronger muscles make for a more efficient and healthy body. Your heart is a muscle, therefore working it makes it stronger. A stronger cardiovascular system means more capillaries delivering more oxygen to the cells in your muscles. This enables your cells to burn more fat during both exercise and inactivity. Cardio exercise uses large muscle movement over a sustained period of time, keeping your heart rate to at least 50% of its maximum level.
Weight training is a type of strength training workout for developing the strength and size of skeletal muscles. It utilizes bars, dumbbells or weight stacks in order to oppose the force generated by muscle, through concentric or eccentric contraction. A variety of specialized equipment are used to target specific muscle groups and types of movement.
