You know that it is important to exercise, right? If you are like most Americans you know you should work out more to get in better shape. However, the facts show that only 20.7% of people exercise as they should.
One third of the America’s youth is unfit for military service and 68.5% of adults are overweight or obese, according to the CDC.
Why Everyone Should Try to Improve Their Fitness Results
Losing weight is one of the primary reasons people exercise and for an excellent reason… because it works! The catch is that you do it correctly and you have a plan for success that will keep you on track.
A recent Stanford study showed that a group given an educational eight-week weight management course before a 20-week weight-loss program was able to maintain weight loss better than a group thrust into the 20-week program immediately. The type of exercise also mattered significantly when it came to getting the best fitness results.
In another study, there was a significant loss of body fat in a group that exercised at a high intensity of 80-90% of MHR (maximum heart rate). No significant change in body fat was found in the lower intensity group, which exercised at 60-70% of MHR. No significant difference in workload existed between groups.
The Mental Benefits of Exercise
Other than looking better, feeling better, functioning better and maximizing your health there are other benefits to exercise most people do no know; that is the mental affects. Anti-depression drugs are among the most commonly prescribed medications in the United States.
Researchers found that walking for 30 minutes each day improved a patient’s symptoms faster than an antidepressant drug. A 2012 study found that 4 months of high-intensity interval training significantly improved cognitive function such as the ability to think, recall and make quick decisions. The reason is because the right type of exercise increases cognitive function as well as maximizes your hormone production, especially growth hormone.
Benefits of increasing HGH production are:
- Increased energy and endurance
- Reduced fat accumulation and increased lean muscle mass
- Increased bone density
- Lower blood pressure
- Improved sleep patterns and moods
