What are the benefits of regular exercise, you ask? Hectic desk jobs and burning the midnight oil preparing countless presentations each week leave one with little or no time to devote to exercise. But since not exercising is decidedly going to give your body a tough time in the long run, it’s time to re-prioritise and put working out back on a pedestal and bounce it back to number one on your daily to do list.
Here are some reasons to motivate you to give your body the attention it deserves.
1. Ladies Dig It:
While working out solely to impress the opposite sex may not really be the best reason to hit the gym, we’d say it is a pretty good motivator. Numerous studies vouch for the fact that women are drawn to muscular men over those roaming around flaunting prominent love handles. A guy who looks fit, strong and healthy makes a woman feel secure, thus making him irresistible to her. Now that you have discovered that the secret to the perfect chick magnet lies within you, get up and get going this instant!
2. Health High:
Regular exercise has a direct impact on overall health of a person. Working out for around half an hour to one hour on a daily basis will go a long way in helping fight obesity and aid in weight loss which will have a direct impact on reducing the risk of adult-onset diabetes. Exercising also releases endorphins in the body thus making one feel good about themselves. If you are still not convinced, we have many more reasons.
Regular exercising helps fight depression and has a preventive effect on dreaded diseases Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s. It also lowers the risk of high blood pressure, which is one of the top lifestyle diseases urban men are susceptible to. And the best of them all – it keeps the prostate healthy and exercise’s resultant decrease in body mass index is also proven to improve erectile function.
With so many benefits of regular exercise, it’s about time you renew your gym membership or make time for daily long walks.
