What Aerobic conditioning can do for you!
Physical exercise can improve both your mental and physical health. The benefits of aerobic
exercise include improved cardiovascular endurance, muscle strength and flexibility. Exercise pumps
more blood through your veins. This increases the size of your arteries, prevents fat from clogging
your arteries and helps prevent blood clots. A strong heart does not have to work so hard so you are
less likely to have a heart attack. Regular exercise also increases your HDL (good) cholesterol and
helps lower your total cholesterol . Exercise also helps lower your blood pressure. Your lungs will
also benefit from exercise as they become better conditioned so that activities such as climbing
stairs will not make you out of breath. Muscles that are not used become small and inelastic, but
aerobic exercise will help tone your body by increasing muscle size, strength and flexibility
while burning fat. Exercise can also help alleviate stress and make you more productive, so
choose something that you enjoy and stick with it.
