Think about your heart for a moment… It is an incredible, amazing, pump,that pushes blood through your entirebody every second, minute and hour of the day
When you run, walk fast, or do any cardio typeexercise your heart pumps faster
Well for one thing, it brings more oxygen to your cells and tissues... oxygen supplies energy Oxygen is also vital to maintaining healthy joints and the health of trillions of cells of your body
Think of your body as a car. If you let your car sit in a garage for months and started it every once in a while, it wouldstart to rust and wear out for lack of use. Oxidation will set in and your cars radiator hoses will become brittle. Why? Because no water has been flowing through them at a steady rate of speed. Your tires will also go bad quickly because they have not moved...your tires will oxidize and become brittle
We do not want that to happen to us We don't want to rust like the Tin Man in the Wizard of Oz So how can we prevent that?
We must move, and move often We must increase our heart rate through walking, or running, or cardio exercise Don't rust like the car Move, and move often
Because it makes you stronger Because it will fill you with energy Because it is a better, healthier lifestyle than sitting
Take long walks Do jumping jacks Rent an exercise video and do aerobics while watching it Join a gym No excuses!
