The Benefits of Exercise And Proper Rest
by Zane Madison
some of his thoughts on the benefits of regular exercise were published for the
edification of readers the world over who were not only interested in sports and
weightlifting but also in good health.

Coach Hoffman believed one of the primary benefits of regular vigorous exercise was
increased blood circulation. Poor circulation is the cause of much pain and discomfort.
In most people the blood supply below the ankles is much less than above. This often
results in cold or painful feet. Legs and ankles swell because circulation is insufficient
to remove cellular waste and carry it to the organs of elimination. Regular scientific
exercise increases strength and improves the functionality of all glands and internal
organs.

The person who exercises can usually bounce back or recover more quickly from
some of the effects of rich food, late nights or alcoholic beverages. Exercise helps to
keep the body and mind fully alive. It creates demands, breaks down tissue and
along with a good diet, builds strong new cells.

Another benefit often overlooked is the mental or emotional factor. Exercise
increases confidence and cultivates power of will. The result is often a more balanced
person with a tranquil mind uncluttered by worry or disturbing thoughts.

Along with proper nutrition, rest and fresh air, a good workout can go a long way
towards the prevention of sickness or disease. In addition to removing lactic acid and
other fatigue poisons from the body, exercise builds balance and coordination. It
improves speed and reaction time.

Stiff joints and sore limbs usually feel much better after a few well designed work
outs. Something as simple as a good walking program will suffice. Quite simply,
exercise will make you look better and feel better. You will benefit from stronger
internal muscles, increased metabolism, more efficient elimination and far better
respiration.

With all this in mind, never overlook the essential need for rest. When you rest, you
rejuvenate and recuperate. It is then that the body rebuilds, repairs, and grows. Even
the strongest metals show fatigue so be kind to yourself and get enough sleep and
time of quiet. It will be good for your body and good for your soul.
