Why Do We Need to Exercise? Benefits to exercise ...

Joseph Coupal - Monday, January 04, 2010

Exercise Benefits - Physical activity is necessary for good overall health ... and most people do not get anywhere enough in their everyday lives. Besides helping with weight control, exercise strengthens your heart, improves circulation, helps prevent many illnesses, and makes it easier to do and even enjoy everyday activities. If you are fortunate enough to be very active in your job, hobbies, and/or home related chores (yard work), and walk or bike often instead of always riding in a car, you may not have to do formal exercise to maintain health. However, the truth is most people are not that active.  Exercise programs help stay fit mentally and physically, but most importantly allow you to enjoy life.

Is Metabolism and Age Related?

Joseph Coupal - Monday, December 28, 2009

Metabolism and Age - Are they related? Yes and no.


People think that because they age they automatically have a slower metabolism than when they were younger. Yes, your metabolism does slow as you get older, but not for the reasons most people believe. It does not just slow because you get older, but instead because you stop moving around as much.

Your metabolism works off two main things: genetics and lean muscle mass. If your parents were lethargic/athletic/ping-pong pros, you will be more disposed to lead that kind of life based upon your genetics. Not all people are that way though. The main reason metabolism slows with age is based upon your lean body mass. When you're younger you move more, and as people get older they move less. Therefore the lean body mass of an individual will decrease unless they continue exercising or begin to exercise even more. Also, if you have very little lean muscle mass then you will not burn as many calories in a day as someone who has lots of muscle mass.

In closing, if you want to make sure your metabolism doesn't slow as you begin to age then exercise and move to stay in shape, keeping that lean muscle mass in check.
