What happens in the body just after workout

When you exercise, your brain starts working, producing thousands of chemical reactions because the activity leads not only to burning fat and increasing muscle, but also helps the whole process of attention and concentration, which extends beyond the time when we are training. A habitual physical activity in addition to lose weight and maintain a nice figure, improve quality of life, health and wellness achieved. The muscle activation triggers a chemical factory of active substances, highly effective, helping to reduce the level of fat, while improving muscle development and performance. It also acts on the cardiovascular system, increased blood flow, which ensures a healthy heart. The heart beats faster and causes vasodilation of capillaries, thereby increasing the amount of bloodflow and the heart muscle is strengthened. The changes that occur in the aftermath of the sport are caused by the segregation of a number of hormones, such as testosterone, adrenaline, cortisol and endorphins. These chemicals will produce a transient state of relaxation, which can take several hours, depending on the intensity of the workout. These effects, ephemeral endure over time with increasing the frequency of sport. A relaxation of the first half hour, we should add mental speed, need for sugar, burning calories and wellbeing.

runningAt first when we start doing an exercise program, measuring either the intensity, the effect is shorter, but as the body generates adaptations step workouts, feelings and general welfare are durable and passes to be our usual mood, the body adapts to these hormone levels and may even affect the genetic. The key is that if the intensity is correct, with a progression, because what today is very intense, in two weeks it is not already, and we must increase the level. The relevant question is whether the sport increases welfare, does stress disappears? Exercise helps combat hormonal responses and anxiety symptoms, but naturally does not resolve whether the focus of stress is caused by other problems.

Sports that require decisions also raise the attention span.

Meanwhile, sports or exercises that require placement decisions, speed, position of different parts of the body, breath or pace, demand a high level of care that stimulate this quality, with transfer to other non-sports daily activities also demand some meditation. We continue to burn calories after the activity especially with electrostimulation, because what we do is break muscle fibers in a controlled and is the day when the body begins to absorb the training that was conducted: burning fat regenerating fibers, but also with other disciplines because accelerated metabolism continues until recovery.

Finally, the practice of sport helps muscles burn a greater amount of sugar from the blood. The pancreas has to produce less insulin to maintain glycemic level under control, producing a lower risk of falling ill with diabetes. Research suggests that models of high intensity training and strength have a positive impact on the regulation of insulin during the half hour after the activity.

But among all these benefits also happen those not desired, such as dehydration consequences. It is therefore desirable to replace all these liquids until two hours after the cessation of activity. And also take into account the loss of minerals that need replacing electrolytes. The saturation of blood lactic acid and depletion of energy reserves is solved with a slow cool down and consuming carbohydrates. So, if you just returned from the running, lie down on the sofa, enjoy a relaxing moment that give your hormones and eat a banana, oatmeal or a few crackers. The shower can wait.
