You feel sluggish in the morning, so you decide to work out before you go to school.
Exercise helps deliver oxygen and nutrients to muscles, tissues and organs, which increases the efficiency of the cardiovascular system. This also increases your energy, and if you exercise in the morning, it can set you off on the right foot.
The school week can get hectic, so you save your exercise sessions only for Saturdays.
According to Dr. Issa Dahabreh, for every additional short period of physical activity a person regularly gets each week, his risk of a heart attack drops by about 45 percent.
Pick any cardiovascular exercise (like running, walking, skating) to build endurance.
Cardio exercise reduces the heart disease, improves heart function, improves muscle mass, and lowers the risk of osteoporosis, a medical condition in which bones become weak and brittle.
While you’re working out, pound out your stress over the crush who doesn’t notice you, the term paper that’s due tomorrow and the fight you had with your mom.
Exercising is a great way to relieve stress. It pumps up your endorphins, helps you concentrate on your body movements and improves your mood.
Before the big history test, do some stretches outside the classroom.
According to HelpGuide.org, “Forget “no pain, no gain,” you don’t need to be a fitness fanatic or gym rat to reap the rewards of exercise. Research has shown that mild to moderate activity is enough to change your life for the better.”
At lunch, grab a candy bar from the snack bar so you’ll have lots of extra sugar for energy.
Junk food contains saturated fats, bad fats, which are a major risk for heart attacks and strokes. They are also said to lead to heart disease, obesity, and cancer of the colon and breast.
Skip the weights in gym class. They’re only good for bulking up, not gaining endurance.
“Building huge muscles is intentional and takes a great amount of work,” says strength and conditioning coach Mike LoBue. You must lift heavy weights at a very high volume many times a week to build bulky muscles.
On the way home from school, you decide to walk really fast, so fast that you have to make several stops to catch your breath.
The key is building a steady endurance, which can get your muscles used to getting pushed. Endurance will also tone your legs and arms and help increase your heart rate so your body heats up and burns calories.
Drink some water to stay awake while you do your homework.
Dehydration can make you tired, so try chugging a tall, cool drink of water instead of coffee when you’re lagging. Extra bonus: Water won’t make you crash like caffeine might!
Jog around the block just before you go to bed so you’ll be exhausted and get a good night’s sleep.
Researchers say most of us don’t exercise as intensely or long enough for it to drastically affect our sleep. However, the exercise will get our blood pumping and make us feel energized and alert, which can prolong our ability to wind down.
