10 Reasons Why You Need To Workout

We all got our own reasons and living our own excuses. And that’s alright. My vision is to help mothers who willing to make some change in their life. To train to get stronger and better in their everyday life. To meet some challenge that will build up their confidence and self-esteem.

I have met people with so many excuses and running for no solutions. I can’t do anything about it, likewise, we can’t change those who refuse to change.

But here’s a reasons why we all need to workout. Even in a very short time.

  1. Building your aerobic capacity. Aerobic capacity is your body’s ability to work at maximum capacity by getting oxygen from the air to your body’s tissues. Ordinarily, people lose about 1 per cent a year of their aerobic power or, if you’d like to do the math, 10 per cent per decade. If you start calculating at the age of 40, this means that people can lose 30 per cent of their maximum aerobic capacity by the time they reach age 70. That’s a lot of unnecessary huffing and puffing. Both long-term and short-term exercise training studies show that you can cut this loss in half so that you’re losing 15 per cent rather than 30 per cent in that 30-year period. Many of the other benefits of exercise stem from this basic fact, so if you remember nothing else from this list, building aerobic power is your most important reason to exercise. Apply the benefits to your daily life, for example: Chasing your children, finishing the house tasks, lifting groceries and plus, driving the kids or walking the kids to playgrounds. These are the activities that require enough oxygen intake. And while you’re working out, your lungs – include your diaphragm will train to pump more oxygen intake. And the blood will carry it UNHIBITED to your systems, including the brain. Walla!
  2. Train Your Muscle to get stronger. Don’t just think it will go bigger. These benefits apply to carry groceries, carrying the kids, climbing up the stairs, I can give you 10 more benefit. Train your muscle will help you prevent injury. The muscles you train will memorize the form of your movement. and you must do it in a very effective safety way. It will protect your joint and bones. Minimize the risk of arthritis. But I would not mind having a muscular look like Giuliana Rancic thou. Or Jessica Biel. I mean, come on!

3. Stress Release, Fatigue and Helps Reduce Depression! 

When you exercise, your body releases chemicals called endorphins. These endorphins interact with the receptors in your brain that reduce your perception of pain.

Endorphins also trigger a positive feeling in the body, similar to that of morphine. For example, the feeling that follows a run or workout is often described as “euphoric.” That feeling, known as a “runner’s high,” can be accompanied by a positive and energizing outlook on life.

Endorphins act as analgesics, which means they diminish the perception of pain. They also act as sedatives. They are manufactured in your brain, spinal cord, and many other parts of your body and are released in response to brain chemicals called neurotransmitters. The neuron receptors endorphins bind to are the same ones that bind some pain medicines. However, unlike with morphine, the activation of these receptors by the body’s endorphins does not lead to addiction or dependence.

I will choose my own music, my own program, wear the best comfortable workout gear, and have fun for my self. I really don’t think about other thing or people when my headphones are on. The music drives me to my challenge. The sweat that comes after, will be the best stress release point for me.

4. Role Model for the whole family. 

We told our kids, get off from the couch and go play. Now can we tell yourself that?

5. To Give ourself respect and love that it’s NEED.

6. Help Ourself to stay in shape for the next 20 years. 

Everything is a process we go through. We can’t expect our self to look hot and glow like J/Lo by the age of 40ish if we don’t start early. We’ve seen on the Instagram, how hard she trains to get a body like that. And no, fake six pack is so easy to notice.

7. To be sexy in front of our spouse.

But my husband loves me the way I am. And yup, there’s still nothing wrong by taking care of your health by being strong from the inside out. I Bet They’ll be more proud of their wife.

8. To Boost Brain Power

Bills, Kid’s schedules, HangOuts, Grocery List, Husband’s Work Itinerary. They all need some good memories space.

All that extra blood bathes your brain cells in oxygen and glucose, which they need to function. The more they get, the better they perform.

Every muscle you move also sends hormones rushing to your brain. There, they mix with a chemical called brain-derived neurotrophic factor, or BDNF, which plays a role in brain cell growth, mood regulation, and learning. “BDNF is like fertilizer for the brain,” says John J. Ratey, Ph.D., a clinical associate professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. “Without it, our brains can’t take in new information or make new cells.”

Exercise has another vital role: It signals the release of several key hormones, including serotonin, the famed mood booster; dopamine, which affects learning and attention; and norepinephrine, which influences attention, perception, motivation, and arousal. This exercise-induced chemical cocktail has a powerful impact. “By elevating neurotransmitters in the brain, it helps us focus, feel better, and release tension,” Ratey says.

Experienced regularly, all that rushing of blood and hormones primes your brain to grow. In one study, researchers scanned the brains of people who exercised for one hour per day, three days a week, for a duration of six months. They discovered an increase in the size of the hippocampus, the part of the brain that controls memory and learning. Working out literally bulked up the study participants’ brains, allowing them to perform better at tasks that require concentration and recall — two talents that come in handy if, say, you do your own taxes or tend to forget passwords.

“Exercise improves attention, memory, accuracy, and how quickly you process information, all of which helps you make smarter decisions,” says Charles H. Hillman, Ph.D., an associate professor of kinesiology and community health at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
