Stay Strong If You Want To Keep Up the Pace in Our Busy World
Our modern world moves at such fast speed we are all under constant pressure to be on the go continually. We need high levels of mental and physical strength to better endure the stresses of daily living at this accelerated pace. Although our world continues to create busyness and stress it does nothing to make us stronger physically as all of the 'work' has long since been removed to make our lives easier.Unless we take action and put intentional strength building and maintaining exercise into our lives we risk a great deal; declining health with increased risk of disease especially the 'big three', heart disease, cancer and diabetes along with at least 50 others. Here's what happens:? Strength decreases and muscle tissue is lost? Bones weaken and their density decreases? Heart/lung function decreases? Body fat percentage increases? Blood sugars and fats increase? Joints stiffen and weaken? Range of motion and flexibility decreasesA simple strength training exercise program set up properly by a fitness professional and performed 2-3 times each week has so many benefits. In a way this exercise program replaces the removal of the 'work' or physical movement that used to be in all of our lives just 50-100 years ago. This movement is what the human body needs to stay strong and healthy so it is in our interests to keep doing it.Here are some of the benefits you can expect to receive from your strength training exercise program.? Increased energy: more endurance, stamina, power and strength which translates into more useable energy for everyday tasks and activities.? Weight loss: muscle tissue burns more calories than fat because of the higher demand for fuel (calories) increasing the metabolism (the body's engine).? Strong bones: increased bone strength as a result of the imposed loads being placed upon the bone during the strength training exercise sessions.? Protection from disease: muscle tissue is where the proteins are stored that keep the immune system strong and are the body's armor and defense mechanism.? Control of depression: you are active in a productive manner stimulating endorphins that signal a happy, pleasant state of mind during and after exercise,? Improved intellectual capacity and productivity: our brains need a reprieve and some quiet time and physical activity provides that respite from the constant intellectual thinking tasks of our modern life.Anyone that wants to keep their mental and physical wellness must have a proper exercise program in place permanently. You will not be able to remain healthy and have a high quality of life without it. It is no longer an optional extra or a luxury ? it is a necessity. Just invest a couple of hours each week and you will be delighted with the extra energy and zip you will have. You will also have the means to de-stress so you can continue to function at a high level in this busy world that is moving along with such breathtaking speed. You will be surprised at how easily you will be able to keep up.
