Maximizing Your Fitness

group stretch in the parkWhen you wake up in the morning your muscles and internal organs have and use Anaerobic energy (energy without oxygen). This energy is 16 times less efficient than Aerobic energy, (energy with oxygen).

The thing to do early each morning is light exercise for 10 to 15 minutes. This helps your body breathe and take care of your internal organs as well as taking in oxygen and pushing this oxygen into your muscles and organs.

This action creates the aerobic energy which sets you up for the day.
If you exercise regularly, you will see widespread improvements across your body. In total 30 minutes a day which can be divided into two 15-minute slots if you wish.

Keeping yourself active is vital for improving your organs and muscles. Your body systems will become more efficient and eventually start to function at the best of their ability. When exercising nerve signals cause arteries to dilate or widen increasing blood flow. This delivers more oxygenated blood to your muscles and organs.

Exercise strengthens your chest muscles which allows greater lung capacity which in turn helps your breathing. Regular exercise also increases the blood oxygen and nutrients to the brain. In turn this stimulates new connections between brain cells, improving mental abilities.

Exercise also boosts the levels of neurotransmitters (chemicals in the brain that control and run the body) such as serotonin, (controls your mood and happiness.) It helps regulate when you sleep and wake up. Heart contractions are stronger, and this helps with efficiently distributing blood throughout the body.
