If people understood the connection between physical activity and health, we would live at least twice as long. The most remarkable example of what humans are capable of is Stu Mittleman who ran 1000 miles in 11days. His book Slow Burn explains how to jog (section a) breathing and the link to Stu Mittleman). If you consider including weight lifting and are wondering what gym training to choose, please prioritise outdoor training. However, a weight workout should be at the end of your list. Exercises on Gymnastic bars are an ideal solution for keeping your muscles in great shape (section g)spine contains more information about why the bar must be used every day).
Our heart is always active during our human life. Everyone understands that without our heart beating our life is impossible.
A heart is a pump or an engine that moves blood around our body.
For some reason, not many people pay enough significance to our immune system.
The main purpose of the human immune system is to clean or wash out toxins from our body.
Unfortunately, the human immune system doesn`t have an engine like a heart.
There is only one way of activating our immune system which is to be physically active during our life on an everyday basis otherwise the toxins will build up inside and will lead to illness and early death.
Native American Indians who lived in tribes used to have a tradition: an old person, who believes that he has become no more than a burden for the tribe, would ask to be tied to a tree. So, he would stand like this for two-three days without being able to make any movement and would then die from intoxication.
Very ill people, who are not able to move properly, can`t go to the toilet for a few days. As a result, doctors forcibly have to wash out excrement from the body.
Have you noticed that people with an unhealthy life style but who are physically active live longer than office workers who even try to follow healthy recommendations of eating good food and visiting a gym but who spend most of their life working in a sitting position without proper movement.
The huge Importance of water for human wellbeing was already mentioned in subsection b) water.
Water and an immune system work together.
If an inactive person drinks water, it still doesn`t help maintain good health.
One of the main functions of water is washing out and eliminating toxins through sweat, urine and tears.
Please imagine, after a nice lunch you put plates, cups and cutlery into a dishwashing machine, fill the machine with water but didn`t press the start-up button. The machine is not working. After some time, you took out all plates, cups and cutlery which are still dirty and use them again for your dinner. After dinner you repeat the whole cycle– put everything into the machine and again didn`t push the button. It is not difficult to figure out that very soon the person will have serious stomach problems.
Unfortunately, not many of us even are aware about the button that can be activated via physical exercises, jogging, skiing, swimming, etc. The result of such ignorance is an accumulation of more and more toxins.
Did you notice, when you use a toilet in the morning urine is much darker and smells stronger than usual. The reason is obvious- the body doesn`t make any movements during its sleeping state.
Let’s consciously bring the precious gift of active movement into our life and our body will respond with great appreciation!
Everyone is unique and has his or her own likes and dislikes. However, whatever we do in our life, it is important to set up a habit of everyday jogging in fresh air locations such as the forest, park or maybe the seaside at least 10min a day and an hour on Saturday or Sunday if you work hard every day.
If a part of your physical activities includes weight lifting – exercises with free weight, if you have a garden, it would be fantastic to do your training in fresh air.
If you consider buying reasonable equipment: barbell, weights, bench, squat stands, a shed for keeping these items, a big umbrella in case of rain during your training- please check the link to outdoor equipment for your gym (or access from Direct links to the best experts and products section-Related Products).
