Illustrated Facts about Healthy Living

Exercise is vital for the physical health and well being of every person. Exercise being the physical exertion of the body, which is working the body to a greater intensity than a usual level of daily activity, by carrying out various physical activities that produces a healthier level of physical fitness. Physical exercise is important for maintaining physical fitness and can contribute positively to maintaining a healthy weight, building and maintaining healthy bone density, muscle strength, and joint mobility, promoting physiological well-being, reducing surgical risks, and strengthening the immune system.

The illustrations here have been created to demonstrate how strength training exercises work on specific muscle groups. The purpose of strength training is to use body building gym equipment to create resistance to muscular contraction to build the strength, anaerobic endurance, and size of skeletal muscles.

Strength training builds functional benefits as well as improvement in overall health and well-being. Free weights usually work a group of muscles at the same time; weight machines typically are designed to isolate and work specific muscle. Using this type of equipment improves appearance as well as regular activity increasing bone, muscle, tendon and ligament strength. With this comes improved joint function and therefore reduced potential for injury. Other benefits are increased bone density, a temporary increase in metabolism, improved cardiac function, and elevated HDL or good cholesterol.
