Advantages and Disadvantages of Exercise
If you’re new to working out (or if you’re just thinking about incorporating fitness into your life). Deciding to be more active is an incredible first step to cashing in all of the amazing benefits of exercise, from better moods to improved sleep to all-around higher confidence.
But here’s the catch, not much can be done once you’re hooked. You’re going to want to stay active, even though you don’t want to.
Exercise builds lean muscle tissue.
Lean muscle tissue helps you burn fat and build lean muscle. This is an amazing benefit but be aware that even though you will see results, you’re going to have a little less body fat overall. This is because muscle tissue requires more calories to maintain. So if you’re not eating right to meet your exercise goals, the extra calories aren’t going to the other areas of your body where you want them.
Your metabolism will slow down.
Your metabolism is something you control you can eat whatever the heck you want, whenever the heck you want, and your metabolism will still be fine. However, if you begin to follow a poor diet and exercise program, your metabolism will slow. This will continue to slow as you progress, until you reach an all-time low point in your metabolism. This is great for those who need to lose weight and want to do it over a long period of time, but it’s not so great for those who want to lose weight quick, those goals are going to be far more difficult to reach.
To see results, make sure to monitor your diet closely. Also, exercise will not be easy. It’s going to take some work, and you’re going to have to get very motivated. Remember, however, if you’re not all that motivated, that doesn’t matter. Don’t let lack of motivation stop you from eating better, and get moving. As long as you’re working, you’re going to get the results you want.
I’ve already stated that exercise builds lean muscle tissue. This is going to be an important benefit for those who want to get leaner. Exercise also raises your metabolism, meaning that you’ll burn more calories even when you’re resting. Finally, exercise builds functional body tissue, which is something that people want to achieve. As I said above, building muscle tissue is an amazing benefit. That said, even though you will see results, you’re going to have a little less body fat overall. This is because muscle tissue requires more calories to maintain. And that’s assuming you never go below a low level of physical activity. As you increase the intensity of your exercise, you’ll need more calories to fuel your workouts. As long as you maintain a moderate pace, the more muscle tissue you have, the more lean muscle tissue you’ll have.
Exercise builds lean muscle tissue, which is really great.
But it also makes you more susceptible to disease. Exercise makes you more susceptible to certain diseases. This is why it’s important to stay active. Exercise helps you fight obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis. Exercise keeps you healthier. But at the same time, it also prevents you from fighting many diseases. So it’s all about balance. As with any kind of health, a balanced approach is what’s important. And you have to know what you’re trying to balance, or you’ll get off track.
So as you can see, there are benefits to exercise. But let me give you the side of things. There are two sides to everything. On one side, you have the health benefits of exercise. On the other side, you have the disadvantages. And I’ll give you the disadvantages of exercise.
The disadvantages of exercise are:
* There is the fact that exercise is time consuming.
You can’t do it at the gym, you have to be outside. For those that don’t like this, I have a suggestion for you. Train indoors with your exercise machine. I think you’ll like this better. Exercise is a great way to stay fit.
* With exercise, it’s also hard to do it on a daily basis.
This means you have to find the time for it. Do it two, three, four times a week. For those that have a hard time finding the time for this, hire a personal trainer. He’ll make it seem as easy as possible.
* You need to go to a gym.
This has disadvantages, not the least of which is that it can be too crowded and noisy. But it has other disadvantages as well. For one thing, it can be too expensive. For another, not everyone will like the atmosphere of a gym. This can make it seem like a place you’d rather avoid.
* Other problems you’ll run into are related to finding equipment.
You need dumbbells, barbells, and machines for your exercise. But it’s hard to find the time to look for these things. One suggestion for this is to check at your gym first thing in the morning. Your equipment will be there waiting for you.
* Finally, not everyone can afford to get a personal trainer.
You can’t go to a gym and exercise yourself. You can only have someone else do it for you. This means that if you have a bad diet, your exercise won’t be very effective. Also, if you have medical problems you should consult your doctor before you do your exercise. Do your exercise on your own.
* If you can’t afford a personal trainer, it doesn’t mean you can’t afford to do exercise.
Go to a gym and ask for a pass. They give them out free of charge. There are also many gyms that don’t charge for their memberships. And you can always workout at home using equipment you’ve bought.
Do your exercise and take your vitamins. It can be quite easy to get your exercise in.
