Exercise still prolongs life

Aerobic Training

Recommended daily is 20 minutes of aerobic exercise at strong intensity, such as running, cycling, swimming or rowing. Basically it is a combination of exercise of the strong pace of 90 seconds, and then another 90 seconds, slightly slower to recover.

It is possible that this is because exercise reduces harmful chronic inflammation, scientists believe, and affects the growth of telomeres.

Regular exercise is one way to lengthen telomeres (chromosomes that scientists believe are the most important indicators of the speed of aging). According to a study published by the University of London King’s College, and was made on a sample of twins, one who has more practiced and had longer telomeres.


With Such training significantly better effect on telomere length than light exercise will be achieved. If such a mode of exercise combined with weight lifting, will improve muscle tone and the effect of aerobic exercise.

3 errors that slow down your metabolism

Losing muscle slows down your metabolism because muscle burns calories even while at rest. One study has shown that aerobic exercise with strength training burned twice  more fat than just aerobic exercise.

 same exerciseDoing constantly  the same exercise for months, will not be enough. Whether it is a daily 30-minute walk or exercise, after a while your body will stop responding to these efforts and you will have worse results, reports MSN.

Bring innovations in practice. Instead of walking on weekends, hiking is recommended. Find a new exercise for the same muscle groups that you have practiced so far.  Any change is welcome.

Do not be a slave to aerobic exercise.

Aerobic exercise are good and useful, but we also recommend exercises to strengthen the body. Only with strengthening exercises for the body you will increase muscle mass and condition the body. When you get into the thirties, women a year lose about 2 pounds of muscle mass per year. Men retain muscle mass a little longer, but is rapidly lost after 60’s.

Losing muscle slows down your metabolism because muscle burns calories even while at rest. One study has shown that aerobic exercise with strength training burned twice  more fat than just aerobic exercise. So during aerobic exercise, you should insert the exercise for power, and it is recommended that you do these exercises at least twice a week.

Exercise vigorously

Exercisers sometimes confuses the fact that the easier pace of exercise burn more energy from fat than the violent exercise, but the violent pace burn more calories in general. We will mention one example. If a woman who has 68 pounds on a treadmill walk at a speed of about 5 kilometers per hour she will burn 112 calories in 30 minutes. Half of the burnt calories, 56 calories that you burn will be calories from fat.

If the same woman walking on a treadmill for about 6.5 kilometers per hour, 30 minutes she will burn 170 calories, of which 68 calories will be burned from fat. It is recommended that you do mixed exercise, vigorous exercise, a few moments and then slow down and accelerate the pace again.

intense exercise is far better to reduce blood pressure than longer exercise

British scientists have come to the conclusion that intense exercise is far better to reduce blood pressure by long-term exercise. Until these results are arrived at based on tests conducted among the 50 teenagers.

One group of teenagers practiced the stronger intensity. Sprint ran 30 seconds and more rested, while the other group ran for 20 minutes, also with pauses. The third group of teenagers behaved normally and did not exercise regularly.

After seven weeks it was found that teens who exercise lose weight and get in shape, which was to be assumed. But it turned out that they lowered blood pressure.

“The results show that brief, intense exercise is very good for the health of teenagers. And, we know that every form of exercise for long-term is good health,” noted experts involved in this research.

Housework more efficient than a gym


During the hour-cleaning you could lose even 238 calories, same as one hour riding a bicycle or an hour and ten minutes of lifting weights

Research company Vileda, which produces equipment for cleaning, has shown that cleaning the apartment is more effective for melting fat than exercising at the gym. During the hour-cleaning you could lose even 238 calories, which is equal to the amount of calories contained in a small package of chocolate or two small glasses of wine.

Weightlifting is lost fewer calories than houseworkWith weightlifting you lose fewer calories than with housework. To burn the same number of calories in the gym you should spend an hour riding a bicycle or an hour and ten minutes of lifting weights. Other alternatives are the hour or half an hour dance or playing football. While cleaning the apartment in comparison to football or dance acts unattractive but in today’s recession is more useful because it offers a double saving.

Except you do not have to pay subscription fees for the gym, saves you money and what you paid for a cleaning, and your apartment will be clean and neat. In addition saves time because you do not have to go to fitness center, after “training” in the comfort of your own home.

Prolonged sitting shortens life

tv Prolonged sitting

People who spend at least four hours a day with TV, video games, computer or behind the wheel of a car twice as prone to cardiovascular problems, and have 50 percent more likely to die earlier

Sedentary jobs that are considered the most desirable, are also the unhealthiest say researchers at University College of London. People who spend at least four hours a day with TV, video games, computer or behind the wheel of a car twice as prone to heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular problems, and are 50 percent more likely to die earlier.

The problem is not the TV or computer, but in sitting, says Health magazine. Although it is  still not clear why the sitting is harmful, studies conducted on animals have shown that prolonged sitting slows activity of enzymes that dissolve blood fats, especially cholesterol and triglycerides.

Prolonged sitting at a computer is bad for your health even if you exercise regularlyProlonged sitting at a computer is bad for your health even if you exercise regularly. And when that does not matter whether you’re sitting in your office, school, car, in front of a computer or television, but it is crucial only the total number of hours spent in a sitting position, according to the Associated Press.

Tim Armstrong, a physical activity expert at the World Health Organization (WHO), said that people who exercise every day, but spend much time sitting, might benefit more if they exercise on several occasions during the day, instead of just one exercise.

“So far we do not have enough evidence yet to say how much sitting is bad,” said Peter Katzmarzyk of the Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge, “But it seems that the more you sit up and interrupt, the better,” he said.

Scientists at the University of Pittsburgh have come to the interesting discovery that people who walk faster live longer. Brisk walking defined as walking that for a second or less, you move one meter. Given that the two-step average slightly longer than one meter this means that in one minute you should make about 100 steps if you want to live longer.

Speed ​​dating is in fact an indicator of health because the body itself regulates the speed-walking “So now if you decide to walk faster, it does not mean you will automatically live longer,” said researcher Stephanie Studenski, adding that the life of the respondents in the period from 10 years with the precision can be determined by the pace of their walk to the bar length of four meters.

Scientists say that the speed of people walking the average lifetime of about 0.8 meters per second, and point out that the speed of movement is far more accurate indicator of longevity than age or gender. Although studies have shown that people who walk faster live longer, researchers have emphasized that the purpose of this study was najterati people to move faster in the hope that it will extend its lifespan.

“The way people move and the speed of walking depends on the control and coordination of movement and energy, which requires the proper functioning of many body systems, primarily the cardiovascular, nervous and skeletal muscle,” said Stephanie Studenski.

The study is based on nine previously conducted studies that analyzed the speed of movement of people, age, gender and body mass index 34 500 people.

Moderate physical activity such as walking for 30 minutes a day, extending the life of 1.3 yearsModerate physical activity such as walking for 30 minutes a day, extending the life of 1.3 yearsAnyway, it was previously known that moderate physical activity such as walking for 30 minutes a day, extending life by 1, 3 years and adds another 1.1 years for the prevention of cardiovascular disease. If you choose, however, intense physical activity can extend life by 3.7 years and 3.3 years delay for cardiovascular disorders.

Bring you these changes in everyday life and begin to walk 30 minutes in the next 12 years will spend 49 days walking, and you will prolong your life by 1.3 years.Walking is the best possible exercise for man and has many benefits. In addition to reducing the risk of developing cardiovascular disease, relieves depression, increases muscle strength, reduced back pain, improves circulation, reduces infections, increases levels of good cholesterol, reduces weight, blood pressure and percentage of total fat in the blood.

Exercise after childbirth

The aim of exercise postpartum recovery is accelerating and facilitating problem with musculo-skeletal system

Exercising during pregnancy the past few years is no longer taboo, and there are more women in this period continue or are just starting to exercise in regulated rates or at home with manuals. Women are often in the daily responsibilities for a child seeking an excuse not to exercise.

The aim of exercise postpartum recovery is accelerating and facilitating problem with musculo-skeletal system, such as back pain, leg, front of the abdomen and pelvis, and other problems that occur as a result of pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding. After a woman 40 weeks pregnant adjusted, the act of giving birth her body will not automatically revert to the old.

To return to the old look and shape it will take at least nine months, the duration of the period of change. And they are most pronounced in the urogenital system. If the uterus, whose position changed during pregnancy, after childbirth does not return to the place, the woman may have trouble relaxing the ligaments that hold the uterus in the pelvis, and long term is a partial or complete descent of the uterus. Pregnancy also weakens the pelvic floor, as the weight of the child in the womb, because of excess weight accumulated in the hull and the pressure on the pelvic floor can lead to urinary problems, and contribute to the development of stress incontinence.

With light exercise, associated with the normal movements such as standing up, sitting and walking, women can begin as early as the first day after birth, but then that there are differences depending on whether born vaginally or by caesarean section.
It is unrealistic from a woman who just gave birth to expect to extract the full half hour of exercise, but can be several times throughout the day separated by a few minutes and do a few exercises.
Eventually they become a little harder, but only after first gynecological examinations, that is by leaving the confinement period, 6 to 8 weeks after childbirth, it is recommended practice to rounded demanding applications.

Before exercising a woman should always be heated 10-minute walk, run or ride a stationary cycle or just dancing to the music he loves. Then, stretching the muscles to prepare for exercise. The following are specific exercises to strengthen specific muscle groups – abdomen, dorsal and pelvic floor muscles, and arm and leg muscles with dumbbell, Flexible tape and other supplies.

Training ends with stretching exercises that provide muscle relaxation and restoration of the normal circulatory and metabolic changes in the periphery of the body. After that it is good to relax, at least 5 to 10 minutes, or ideally, about half an hour, while a woman can keep a child on his chest. For women who can not or do not want to leave your child alone, there are exercises in which the child uses as little weight in certain positions. These exercises will be fun for both mother and baby and will enable the achievement of specific contact between them. Some exercises can be done in nature, such as mother walks pushing baby in stroller.

Mating a good workout

After the first gynecological examination at birth, women can usually return to normal sexual activity and should be used as an exercise. However, it should adjust the position during intercourse, depending on whether born vaginally or by caesarean section. Women after cesarean section to be less restricted with regard to position, but there is a greater risk for pain in the abdomen, while women who gave birth vaginally usually paint the pain of the wound incision in the perineum. If your scars are hurting, does not mean that women should not engage in sexual intercourse or not to exercise, but all this must be approached gently, with care and caution, in agreement with a partner.
