By working out on a regular basis, our body becomes more efficient at burning calories. This gives us more energy throughout the day.
Increased physical activity through working out leads to more muscle mass. This leads to a higher metabolism. Some studies show that for every extra pound of muscle, we burn anywhere from 50-100 calories when at rest.
Improved Muscle Tone
Physical activity, especially weight training allows us to change the shape of our body. We can get bigger or smaller by gaining more muscle mass. This is due to the fact that muscle is denser than fat.
Increased exercising leads to a strengthening of the immune system. A stronger immune system means that we are less likely to get sick. However, it requires that we stick with the right amount exercising. But, over exercising can weaken your immune system and make you sick. A good goal to aim for is 30-60 minutes four times per week.
Regular work outs can extensively reduce our Stress levels. They allow the us to take their mind off the daily problems and release pent up energies for productive purposes.
Following an exercise regimen on a regular basis will bring about greater self esteem through the results and accomplishment that we have achieved.
