With each passing day the thought of losing the youthfulness and body metabolism starts hitting at an early age. With body losing its balance slowly and moving towards bad reflexes, memory power and slower metabolism, our body ages slowly but there is one thing that you can do to prevent from the ageing.
Researches show that there is something that you can actually do to prevent your body from ageing or more to make you hold on to your age and that is – exercising!
Exercise slows down aging
There have been numerous researches showing that fit and exercising older adults can be as active and performing as the young ones. As with age the body starts to get older and less functioning there is a need to maintain your body and the researches have made it evident that it is possible to maintain your body and be active as much as you had been in your youth.
Exercising as we all know is like a boon to our body. With stretching, jogging, running and even doing yoga you are able to lose weight, maintain a healthy lifestyle, cure bad mood and maintain a good sleep cycle.
But in the latest research the results show that when older adults are exercising regularly they tend to have the same stamina and strength as young people. This is clearly understood by a study on the group of cyclists who used to be doing cycling from the very young age.
Cycling we all know works on the body balance and build strength in the body. With increased stamina and better metabolism cycling surely is a complete workout. So when the group of old cyclists were chosen for the research it was found that they were all fit and active. People from similar lifestyle were chosen and put to different routines to test their strength and stamina.
These groups of people were also checked on their body strength and build and found to be as fit as a young adult today. With inspection of the cardiovascular systems, metabolism, hormonal levels and muscle strength the group seemed to be perfectly healthy! Their stamina and endurance were also good.
Amazing results of the research on cyclists
The results of the group of cyclists were given to a clinician and asked to predict the age of the people and it was impossible to do so! Given the older people have decreased muscle mass and lower endurance, the age became evident but apart from these reasons the prediction of age seemed impossible. Thus proving that exercising can help you retain the youthfulness of the body and stay active for longer.
The reporters and scientists told that exercising regularly can help your body function well from inside and keep you young from within. With better functioning of organs and disease free from inside, the body remains as good as youth.
What amazed us the most was that these people were as fit mentally as they were physically! With possibly lesser signs of depression and anxiety, they had the right mental health.
Although this was a simple test depicting the impact of exercising on regular cyclists, the research is made on varied groups of people and progressing towards better understanding. Further research shall reveal more comprehensive and detailed study with more lifestyles chosen and the impact of exercising on different lifestyles.
So if you still think that a walk in the morning or taking the steps instead of lift is not going to count – think again!
Exercising in any way can prevent you from ageing, and keep you active even in the oldest of time!
