Get In The Game With Antiaging Exercise - Articles Surfing
We all know the impact that exercise can have on our bodies. Researchers have long promoted the long reaching benefits that consistent physical activity can have on our well-being. In addition to increasing our strength and reducing stress, exercise can greatly bolster our immunity, allowing us to successfully hold illness and disease at bay.
In this position of renewed energy, strengthened muscle tone, and heightened immunity, we are literally slowing time; hindering the effects of the natural aging process. We can engage in physical activity as antiaging exercise and make our bodies as resistant as possible to the signs and symptoms of age.
Engaging in antiaging exercise simply means getting our bodies moving. If that initially means just a few minutes of exercise a day then that will do. As you gain strength and energy you will be able to move on to longer periods of more vigorous exercise.
Ideally, an antiaging exercise program consists of a balanced amount of cardiovascular activity, strength training, and a program of stretching to improve flexibility. Cardio works to get your heart rate up and burn fat. While keeping you trim, your heart is also working hard for you * there's no better way to strengthen your cardiovascular system.
Strength training involves the use of weights * either free weights or on a machine. While increasing muscle strength you are also protecting your bones from the effects of aging. For women, strength training is recommended as an antiaging exercise to prevent osteoporosis.
As we age, we tend to lose flexibility. A dedicated program of Pilates or Yoga as a part of antiaging exercise will not only reduce stress, which has a profound positive impact on our bodies, including the lowering of blood pressure, but will work to keep joints limber and young.
As with anything, if we don*t continue to use what we have, it eventually goes away. If we continue to physically challenge our bodies as we age, we will find they will rise to meet the challenge.
