Why do some seniors have the heart of a person in the 40´s?
Everybody says, that a healthy diet and a daily workout program is the key to a healthy and long life. That it is not wrong, do we think, knows everybody but now we have scientific evidence for that.
No excuses and no doubt anymore. Who would like to live a healthy life in their retirement should train, run etc. more frequently.
In this article, we are going to explain to you, why you should do sports and what the benefits are.
An example from a study
A few scientists have made a little study whether a person who did some sports in his life have better organs than a "couch potato". The results may not be so surprising because everybody knows that regular sports activities improve your cardiovascular system.
The most surprising result was, that seniors which ran, cycled, etc. have the heart of a 40-year-old person.
Yes, you read it right! We were very surprised, that it has such a huge impact.
Additionally, the scientists analyzed the enzymes which are responsible for the breakdown of carbohydrates and fat.
The result was that seniors (which did some sports) have better results than people in the 40´s here too.
Many people don´t train when they are 30 because it isn´t noticeable that it is so important to run (or train, etc.) regularly. Only with the time, you will notice that you should have done a little cardio session but then it is normally too late. (if you start later it is better than never)
Do I have to run 20 miles daily?
No, you don´t have to run that much. If you train, run etc. for 30-60 minutes per day, that is enough.
If you are not a big fan of running or working out, no problem. If you walk daily then it has exactly the same effect. So it is not important what you do, the only thing is that you should do something.
If you would like to live a long and healthy life then you should think about whether you remain to lay on your couch today or whether you walk to the next store.
We think in our time it is very important to look at his body because in the world are so many temptations which try to persuade us to eat not that clean as we should do.
