Remind ourselves why exercise benefits us
Exercise expands the vascular system opening the capillaries in the muscle tissue. It helps by lowering the resistance to blood flow in the arterial system, prevents hypertension and causes the blood pressure to drop to normal.
Benefits of Exercise
Exercise builds muscle mass and prevents the muscles from being broken down as fuel.
Exercise stimulates the activity of fat-burning enzymes to produce sufficient energy for increased muscle activity. When training you are changing the source of energy for muscle activity. You convert the energy source from sugar in circulation to the fat stored in the muscle.
An hour of walking will cause this activation of fat-burning enzymes to remain active for 12 hours. A morning and afternoon walk will keep these enzymes active round the clock. The walk will also cause clearance of cholesterol deposits in the arterial system.
