The Complete Exercise Program
One of the most important steps to reverse your biological age is regular exercise. In this age of push-button technology you run the risk of spending so much time in your mind that you neglect the needs of your body. One of the critical needs of your body is to move.
"Use it or lose it" is directly applicable to your physical body. We are seeing a growing epidemic of obesity in Western society that is now affecting our children, mainly because the average person - adult or child - spends less time moving their body than at any point in human history. As a result of not exercising regularly, we suffer increased risks for heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, and cancer.
Several studies have shown how hazardous inactivity can be to your health. A report published in 1968 found that if you impose bed rest on young, healthy men for three weeks, their measurements of cardiovascular fitness deteriorate by the equivalent of almost twenty years of aging. As anyone who has had to wear a cast for a broken bone knows firsthand, not using a muscle leads to wasting and weakness.
Exercise along can alter many of the important biomarkers of aging. Drs. William Evans and Irwin Rosenberg from Tufts University have documented the powerful effects exercise has on improving muscle mass, strength, aerobic capacity, bone density, and many other key biological markers of aging.
One of the most effective ways to raise your level of HDL cholesterol (the "good" cholesterol) is through exercise. Studies have shown that men sixty to seventy years old can increase their muscle strength by 100 to over 200 percent
after just twelve weeks of training.
While your body is getting stronger, it is also getting leaner. As a result, your ability to handle sugar is improved and the risks for diabetes are reduced. Regular weight training strengthens your bones and lessens the chances for developing osteoporosis. This is particularly important for women who are at risk of losing bone once they are beyond their reproductive years.
Of all the approaches to growing younger, exercise produces the most prompt returns. Within a week of beginning a fitness program, you'll notice definite improvement in your sense of well-being. After a few weeks you will not be able to go without it. Regular exercise is an essential element of the reversal-of-aging program.- Grow Younger, Live Longer: Ten Steps to Reverse Aging
