Women and Exercise

Aug 8, 2008
Women are more prone to obesity. They have to exercise every day for as little as 10-30 minutes. This will enhance their quality of life.

Importance of exercise to women at different stages of life:

A woman, whatever her age, has to have some sort of physical activity to keep herself physically fit. The benefits derived from physical activity are enormous. This little extra activity adds to the quality of life a women can have. Now we shall examine the need for exercise at different stages of a women's life.

Early days

Before the advent of computers and televisions, children were not required to exercise. But once the computers became popular, studies conducted has found that a little exercise for children is also a must. A child sticks to her computer or television which takes away from her the option of playing on the ground. This lack of exercise will lead to unhealthy adults' generation. The present age killer is the cardio vascular diseases. This disease can attack men and women alike and it is due to the lack of exercise. So the prime time for developing healthy lifestyle and good habits is in childhood and adolescence.

Middle age:

When a woman is in her middle age, the most common complaint she has is that of weight gain. The weight gain is slow but persistent. The major belief for this weight gain is due to hormonal changes. Yet some others link this weight gain to reduced amount of lean muscle tissue. This decreased amount of lean muscle tissue results in a slower metabolic rate. Research has shown that women, who have adopted some extra physical activity, have more lean muscle tissues even in their middle age. This helps them to an increased rate of metabolic activity and the rate of weight gain is less.

It has also been found out that many other common complaints of women can be avoided or even controlled by exercising. Exercise not only improves sleep but also helps in improved energy levels during the day. Exercise also controls diseases like blood pressure, arthritis, high levels of cholesterol etc. One of the crucial reasons for women to at least start exercise in her middle age is to keep off from osteoporosis. A woman' s density of the bone starts declining from her middle age and bone loss speeds up after her menopause. Thus to avoid this women can adapt herself to walking, jogging or strength training to reap the benefits of healthy life.

Elderly

Elderly women can also live a good and healthy life style if she takes up to lighter exercise. Research has found that even those who are in their 90's can also be physically fit. The best of exercise is that it is never too late to start. So starting to exercise at a later stage of life can also keep a women fit and lead a quality life. So women of today what are you waiting for? Start today right now and discover the secret to a healthy life.
