Exercise For Physical Health (Part 1) :

Exercise For Physical Health (Part 1)
The positive benefits of physical activity has been extolled throughout western history. Scientific evidence supports the long standing theory that there are benefits to physical activity as related to good health and has been accumulating and documented since 1900 and more specifically the last half of the 20th Century. It has become well known that vigorous exercise has a very beneficial effect on a person's overall health, especially the cardio respiratory system.

Physical exercise directly effects not only overall health but is beneficial in controlling obesity or helping to overcoming weight problems. Physical exercise also helps in improving mental health, endurance, flexibility, agility, and motor coordination. Proper use of exercise systems, including body improvement programs such as muscle building, coupled with appropriate nutrition programs and proper rest have long lasting effects on a person's mental state of well being and building up resistance to diseases.

Appropriate exercise programs helps mental health by increasing one's ability to realize his or her own abilities, coping with normal stresses of life, improving work productivity and is more able to make a contribution to his or her community. Exercise helps relieve stress through improved circulation and muscle toning.

Endurance is enhanced through a continuing exercise program. Endurance varies according to the type of exertion - minutes for high intensity anaerobic exercise, hours or days for low intensity. Endurance training includes resistance training to improve the ability to exert strength or physical exertion.

Flexibility and agility may be improved through the use of appropriately designed exercise regimentation. The range of motion of joints may be increased by stretching exercises. While agility is often included as part of flexibility, the ability to change the body's position efficiently requires the integration of isolated movement skills using a combination of balance, coordination, speed, reflexes, strength, endurance and stamina. A wide range of physical fitness exercise using all of the muscle groups helps increases overall flexibility and agility. Use of specific designed exercises for a predetermined period is a normal prescription for overcoming muscle injuries. However, a balanced program of exercise carried out on a regular program basis helps improve overall coordination of all muscle groups to improve motor skills. Physical exercise programs helps improve the integration of processes ranging from how muscles interact with the skeletal system to neural processes controlling them both in the spine and the brain.

As stated by the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, "The 1995 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, the basis of the federal government's nutrition related programs, included physical activity guidance to maintain and improve weight - 30 minutes or more of moderate-intensity physical activity on all, or most, days of the week." Physical exercise has important and positive effects on musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, and endocrine systems. Resulting health benefits include a reduced risk of premature mortality and reduced risks of coronary heart disease, hypertension, colon cancer, and diabetes mellitus. Additional benefits are believed to occur in reducing depression and anxiety, improve mood, and enhance ability to perform daily tasks. Appropriate exercise will thus improve ability to function efficiently and effectively in work and leisure activities, to improve overall health condition, and to meet emergency situations.
