101 Benefits of Exercise.44

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.

44. Helps you to maintain your resting metabolic rate.

(This should be shouted from the roof tops if you are interesting in losing or maintaining weight; and it, particularly, relates to strength training for increased muscle mass. The resting metabolic rate of muscle is much greater than fat: more muscle equals more calories being burned… 24/7.) (Pick a word that you like and search it on this Blog for more details; or call us for an appointment.)

I will be Posting a benefit every day – well, most days – 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.

This list of benefits of exercise will help you to remember why working out is a priority IF you want to be healthy (if you don’t want to be healthy then you are reading the wrong Blog!)
