Can Exercise Help you Stay Young ?

Most people think that exercise can have a bad effect on our bones and our body, One of the benefits of exercise is that it helps reduce the inflammation that comes with aging, says a new study. The trick is knowing what kind—and how much.

In my recent trip I notice that when once someones grows old they tend to be slower and tires easily from daily commute and not even with vigorous strength usage. But there is a difference with one that does exercise daily. I was comparing with two person with a age gap of a about a year or so,

New research shows that regular physical activity can reduce the inflammation in the body that comes with aging, which could also help decrease your risk of developing related diseases and conditions—like heart disease, depression, decreased mental function, and loss of muscle mass
I was reading the effect of exercise vs health and found this new study—published in the journal Circulation—followed people for 10 years to examine the long-term effects. They found that, in general, people who were more active at the start of the study, or exercised more by the end, had lower levels of inflammation, which is one way to help your body stay young.
To Start with:
20 – 30min of daily exercise maybe a short brisk walk, cycling, running, gardening or even house chores (things to get you moving and sweating). Exercise requires momentum and you need to build that, what seems difficult last month will be easier if you do it daily.
  • Meet the physical activity guidelines each week by breaking it into 20 to 30 minutes sessions each day. Activities that count include running, walking, cycling, gardening, and housework.
  • Avoid extreme exercise—anything over 70 percent of your maximum effort for more than 30 minutes counts. Previous studies have shown that this level of intensity can actually increase inflammation.
  • Try interval training for a short, but potent, but shorter, workout.
  • Build up gradually. As you strengthen your body, what felt difficult last month will suddenly be a walk (or run) in the park.
