101 Benefits of Exercise.34

Research overwhelmingly shows that regular exercise lowers the risk for many diseases, enhances the functioning of virtually every physiological system in the human body and improves psychological well-being.

34. Helps to preserve lean body tissue.

This only applies, of course, if you are talking about strength training: in other words muscle building. And muscle, by definition, is lean body tissue. I have commented many times here on the importance of knowing the primary purpose of the exercise you do. You, presumably have a reason for doing the exercise, if just makes sense to insure that the what you do provides the result you are interested in.

Put another way, and by way of a common and easily understood example, if you do hours and hours of cardio (of any kind) and fail to provide everything necessary for recovery, you will lose lean body tissue.

I will Posting a benefit every day from a list put together by Dr. Dave Phillips, M.D. He is an M.D. from Atlanta, GA who specializes in Sports Medicine. As a former All-American swimmer he knows a few things about exercise. He is also on the JuicePlus+ Health Advisory Board. He is also all over YouTube doing videos on JuicePlus+, exercise, and other health-related topics.

I hope this list of benefits of exercise is of help to you.
