Remember, the more you move your muscles, the more you are prepared against illness. How does this happen and how can it be explained?
Endurance training makes your muscles stronger, not thicker. This results in the formation of small new blood vessels that supply extra oxygen to your muscles. This is how extra nutrients are converted into energy.
When muscles are in motion, they produce myokines, hormone-like messengers that have an anti-inflammatory effect and help to stimulate fat burning. They also increase bone stability.
Remember in the future: the more you keep your muscles moving, the less you have to fear various types of illness.
Small breaks and pauses
You should work at regular intervals with small breaks and pauses. Use them to get up and move around.
For example, during your lunch break, take a short walk to the restaurant or snack bar where you will have your lunch. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. But most importantly: start moving more today!
