Cardiovascular exercises, such as walking, running, biking and swimming, all increase the heart rate. This strengthens cardiac muscle and allows the body to use stored body fat as a fuel source for purposes of losing weight.
Resistance exercise helps to increase strength, improve sports performance, increase neuromuscular communication and elevate the body’s basal metabolic rate. Research has also shown that regular resistance exercise will help to increase and maintain bone density.
1. Increase blood flow throughout the body to transport nutrients and eliminate toxins and other waste
2. Relieve chronic pain caused by buildups of adhesions or scar tissue from previous trauma/injury
3. Assist in venous blood return to the heart which lowers blood pressure and increases oxygen in the tissues
4. Decrease discomfort due to muscle pain, arthritis, tendonitis, fibromyalgia, stress-related headaches, and
5. Passive and active mobilization of joints to increase and maintain range of motion
· DECREASE post workout soreness
· ELIMINATE post workout by-products such as lactic acid
· INCREASE muscle recovery
· RETURN musculature to normal “resting” length
· ENHANCE adrenaline “high” with endorphin release
· CORRECT postural imbalances
