As we all know, our genetic inheritance is encoded in complex, tightly wound strands of DNA. This is our blueprint for development as a human being. But there are multiple factors that can affect the well-being of a human. Some can be good and some can be bad. Exercise is one of the good ones. Not everyone will admit this, but there’s something magical about exercise.
Exercise: Literally, You Feel Good!
Your brain produces endorphins in response to vigorous exercise and you feel energized, alert and alive. You derive tremendous satisfaction from doing something you said you’d do. You feel good about yourself all day long. Beyond these benefits related to personal fulfillment, regular vigorous exercise builds strong muscles and bones and strengthens your cardiopulmonary system.
Your Body Becomes More Efficient the More You Use It
Your heart and lungs become substantially more efficient. Your heart pumps more blood with every beat, and your lungs take in more air with every breath. Your entire physiology, that is every one of your cells, tissues and organs benefits from a consistent program of regular exercise.
Exercise Can Make You Look Good
Not only does exercise exert a profound effect on the most basic components of human physiology and make you feel good, it can also make you look good — the reason many people are motivated to take up regular exercise in the first place.
Our long-ago high school gym teachers who exhorted us in seemingly endless rounds of sit-ups, push-ups, pull-ups and squat thrusts knew what they were doing. It’s up to us to continue the program.
