Facts About Exercise You Should Know

By Paul Rothbart

Regular exercise is one of the keys to good health. There are many effective ways to work out and you can choose the one that suits you best. When exercising, as with anything else, knowledge is power. Here are some facts about exercise you may not be aware of but you should definitely know.

Exercise Can Boost Energy Levels

Many people who avoid exercise do so because they are too tired. But working out in the morning can boost your energy levels for the rest of the day. It may be hard to get out of bed a little earlier, but it's worth the effort. A 30-minute training session can wake you up. Exercise produces endorphins that have a long-lasting effect that makes you feel good and full of energy.

Exercise Strengthens Your Heart

The heart is in fact a muscle and like any other muscle, it gets stronger with exercise. When you are working out, your heart must pump blood faster to fuel your body and provide it with oxygen. This makes it stronger and more efficient over time. It can help to prevent heart disease and lengthen lifespan. Regular exercise can also lower your resting heart rate so your heart doesn't have to work as hard when you're not training.

Music Can Help You Keep a Lively Pace

When you exercise, especially in cardio workouts such as walking, swimming, and running, it's important to keep up a pace that's fast enough to work your heart and lungs. It can be challenging but listening to music can supply you with a tempo and rhythm and help you stay on pace. Choose music that suits how fast you want to train.

Changing Your Routine Can Make It More Effective

It's nice to fall into comfortable habits, but when it comes to exercise, changing things up periodically is a better way to go. Your body gets used to a routine and becomes more efficient in performing it. It then doesn't get the same benefits from it. By changing how you train every few weeks, your body is always facing new challenges and will continue to get stronger and more fit.

Exercise Can Boost Your Immune System

It's not commonly known, but regular exercise can strengthen your immune system as well as your body. Studies have found that following a period of exercise, the body produced more antibodies. This makes the immune system more effective at fighting bacteria, germs, and viruses. You may find you have fewer colds and get sick less often when you are working out regularly.

Exercise is vital to health. No matter what you like to do, it's important to be active. Knowing these facts can help you to get the most from your training and optimize your health.
