Losing weight is important but the activities that need tobe done in order to get that state, physical activity and dieting, are alsoimportant.
Exercising and health
Exercising is healthy and it should be applied as much aspossible in all forms possible. How is that beneficial to us? We can crudelydivide exercising into cardiovascular workout and muscle mass buildingworkout. Both have slightly different mechanisms and final goals, but bothshould be used at one point or another. What is essential to know about cardiovascular workout? It is basically revolving around only one thing, eliminationof the fat tissue, if it exists, of course. If not, it is an excellent obesityprevention method. This type of workout might need some space because itinvolves running (as one of the exercises), but, if that is not possible, things like treadmill and ellipticaltrainer might be quite useful. The mechanism of the cardio vascular workout isbased on the slow exercising, which allows the engagement of the oxygen in themuscle contraction process. The strength needed for performing this type ofexercises should be very low and that ensures that the exercise is done for avery long time. This workout is really great for fat elimination and as such,it is a great complimentary workout for all those who want to reach the state ofthe perfectly shaped body.
This is a basic form. After that, when the organism gets usedto a specific routine, it should be changed and amplified. This means that if weare talking about running, sprints should be added. This sudden change of thepace will put a lot more strain on the organism, but the effects are reallybeneficial, since fat burning process will continue on. Why is this upgrade done?Simply because our body gets slowly used to a certain tempo and at one point, muchless energy is needed to perform some exercise, which automatically lessensthe number of calories spent.
Completely different mechanism is used with muscle mass building.Weight lifting requires explosive contractions and there is simply not time forthe oxygen to get involved. This leads to accumulation of the lactic acid inthe cells and induces tiredness in the muscles. On the other hand, itstimulates muscle growth, which is the main goal here. It is obvious that these two different types of workoutshave different effects, so we can say that at some point, for reaching the bestpossible shape, both of those exercises have to be done.
