Health is defined as the overall state of wellness of a person that includes physical, mental and social well being. Everyone wants to be in such a healthful condition and thus we are required to remember a couple of important things to be healthful. Keeping a nutritious and balance diet and a good lifestyle are the major considerations to attain healthy state. When we talk of food consumption that supports health we are given a list of regular dietary recommendations based on what our body needs. If we speak of good lifestyle it includes avoidance of detrimental vices, proper stress management and of course, exercises.
We always hear of exercises to be a part of a healthy lifestyle and yet we often take it for granted without a serious assessment on its importance. It could either simply be due to an apathetic attitude towards maintaining health or a knowledge deficit regarding these routines , as people often think of it as tiring, energy and time consuming. These are in reality wrong notions.
Exercises are actually any bodily activity that enhances or maintains physical fitness and overall health and wellness; thus our idea of a rigid training and body straining regimens could be inexact. The different activities that we involved with each day can already be considered as a workout. Walking for one is the best form of activity, jogging and running can also be counted. There are various types and categories of body exertions that can be beneficial and will depend on what body part or ability would you like to enhance.
Types include flexibility workouts that promote range of motions of muscles and joints which include stretching and similar routines. Aerobic exercises aim at enhancing increasing cardiovascular endurance and can be done through activities such as swimming, walking, skipping rope, rowing, running, hiking and the likes. Anaerobic on the other hand boosts short term muscle strength such as weight training, functional training, eccentric training or sprinting. As with its categories there are strength training and agility training. Strength training uses resistance to muscular contraction to build the strength, anaerobic endurance, and size of skeletal muscles.
There are many different methods to these, the most usual is through the use of gravity or elastic/hydraulic forces to counteract muscle contraction while agility training maximizes ones ability to change the body’s position efficiently, and needs the assimilation of remote movement skills through the consolidation of balance and coordination, speed, reflexes, strength, endurance and stamina. Whether your aim is to keep body healthy or improve a physical skill, exercises are indeed beneficial to health and vital to attaining optimum level of functioning.
