Exercise and training have many positives to your body and your life, some short term and some long term, but all of which are improvements on your body and yourself!
First of all your metabolic rate increases, helping burn those calories quicker and blood viscosity is improved, contributing to better transportation of oxygen around the body! Oxygen flow rate increases from 8 litres per minute at rest to 100 litres during training – a huge increase. This increased blood flow allows the cells of the body to take in more oxygen and nutrition from the blood.
Weight is lost more quickly! That’s an enticing statement right? Well, it’s because carbohydrates and proteins are digested 4 times faster by the body. Also, exercise stimulates a good mood! Our brains release endorphins causing this mood lift.
