Not only is this proven, but I am personally testimony to this.
How? I exercise 5 days a week, first thing in the morning as soon as I arise starting with press ups and then static weights. When I have finished, I feel a sort of 'buzz' and a definite feel-good factor and am ready to face whatever the day wants to 'throw' at me. I also play as much tennis as I can (weather permitting)for my cardio, and follow a very healthy
antioxidant rich diet.
Result? I am 50 years old but feel like I am in my early twenties, I don't get aches or pains and I can still do everything (and more) that I could 25 years ago without struggling. Exercise and fitness has certainly benefitted me so far and I hope for many years more. To prove it, here is a pic of me winning the Mens Tennis Doubles Championship 2008 at my local club!
Other benefits include lowering of the following...
- Blood Pressure
- Your Risk of Dangerous Blood Clotting
- Your Risk of Coronary Heart Disease
In fact the primary reason for heart disease is due to inactivity, studies have shown.Exercise also has the ability to slow-down or even prevent the onslaught of diabetes and reverse it if you suffer from it.
As we inevitably grow older disease can be a main threat, however exercise is a major factor in preventing diseases and plays an important role in the longevity of your life too. I believe people who take regular exercise faithfully, could even lower their risk of becoming disabled as they advance in years.
I know many people, younger than I am (even teenagers), that suffer from all sorts aches and pains. I put it down to bad diet and not enough exercise. They say the 'proof is in the pudding!'
So, if you don't already take any exercise, it's not too late to start.
