The Benefits of Aerobic Exercise

By | November 8, 2014

Aerobic exercise is one of the key ingredients to a healthy body. While weight training is helpful in sculpting a great figure, aerobic exercise is the cornerstone to any workout and it is the foundation for a healthy lifestyle. Not only can aerobics help you stay in shape, these exercises can also help your physical well being.

People who have diabetes benefit from aerobic exercise. The workout helps keep blood sugar levels on target. Simply taking a brisk walk three times each week will lower your blood sugar levels significantly. This will help you avoid complications caused by diabetes over the course of time. Such complications include heart disease and kidney failure.

You have to get the exercise your body needs to stay fit and live long. If you’re not working your body hard at your job, chances are that you probably aren’t getting the exercise you need. You can go to a gym, but today, most people don’t. Gym exercise is said to have peaked in 2006 and hasn’t come back since. Why? Most people are now setting up their own little home gym. It takes but a little space and some equipment (you’ve got your own shower and closet). If you were going to the gym, invite some friends over when you work out at home. If you want to meet people like you did in the gym, try out the net – there’s always somebody who wants to meet you on the net. (I get invitations to meet people every day, in every way, but that’s another story.)

If you are into high intensity exercise you should definitely check out the various fitness resources on the web.

Your mood will also improve if you engage in consistent aerobic exercise. This type of exercise helps elevate your mood and it helps give your body the energy it needs to complete everyday activities with ease. Aerobic exercise is also a great way to relieve stress and anxiety.

Many women worry about osteoporosis as they get older. The signs of osteoporosis can become apparent in the early 30’s in many women. Adding weight bearing aerobic exercise into your weekly routine can help your body build strong bones. One of the most popular weight bearing exercises around today is walking.

Individuals who suffer from conditions like arthritis will benefit from low-impact or no-impact aerobic exercises like swimming and aqua aerobics. These kinds of workouts are very good to your joints. Many believe that these activities actually improve their mobility in the long run.

For those seeking the benefits of running, you can get a treadmill, an elliptical exerciser, or a stationary bike. Any one of these will give your cardio-respiratory system all it needs. Most people prefer the treadmill for purely cardio-respiratory workouts. If you want to strengthen your legs and gluts, the elliptical exerciser or stationary bike is a better choice. If you have joint problems, an elliptical exerciser is best for you. If you want to harden your gluts, go with an upright stationary bike. For people with back pains, a recumbent stationary bike is best.
