Good to know you are fitness freak!

Our body is a treasure that we need to preserve. Physical fitness does not come from a toned figure or radiant skin.

Rather a physically fit body is the one with the perfect balance of mental and physical stability.

A healthy heart is the storehouse of good health.

A body that has a lot of strength and endurance definitely has a robust heart and will certainly live longer. Of course, a physically strong body needs not just muscle power but mental sturdiness as well.

A body with strong will power and calm composure is the one with a stable heart.

The Navy Seal’s Fitness Guide

Being physically fit does not lie only in gaining muscle strength but also maintaining it for the long run.

A perfectly physically fit body will ideally have these qualities that even the Navy Seal Fitness Guide recommends:

  • Agility
  • Balance
  • Coordination
  • Speed
  • Power
  • Reaction on time

Research has proven that obesity is a greater problem than physical fitness. However, if a body undergoes regular physical exercise, it will have a lesser chance of obesity and also early aging.

Hence, we would retain our energy at a much higher level at a comparatively higher age.

Growing up with GH

There are some things in life that we can’t change in regards to aging. But we can have some effect on the timing and level of those inevitable changes.

Experiments prove that with aging the unavoidable frailty we experience is something we cannot eradicate but we can minimize it.

Do you know what is responsible for that? Our Growth Hormone!

Growth Hormone determines our aging symptoms.

Aging comes about because our pituitary gland, that is responsible for GH secretion, reduces its production. That’s when the universal symptoms of wrinkles, age spots, fatigue, weakness, weaker vision, poor immunity, slower metabolism and sadness sets in!

So what if we could stabilize this cause? What if growth hormone stimulation could be regularized?

How to maintain GH?

The best and the easiest way would be exercising.

The other prominent way is quite enjoyable to all but an impossible task for many. Sleeping!

A lot of people suffer from insomnia and depression issues. A lot of that happens from poor eating habits, unpunctual lifestyles, and lethargy.

Exercising the known fact!

Did you know that science has a separate branch that deals only with exercising?

It is known as exercise physiology and it studies the body’s reaction to the physical strain it undergoes during a work out.

  • Playing a game with your kids
  • Walking your dog
  • Swimming in a pool
  • Taking breaks for walks during office hours
  • Eating meals in smaller proportions more often during the day
  • Drinking lots of water
  • Cycling
  • Regular gym training or yoga
  • Dancing of your choice/aerobics

These are some of the easiest ways to maintain physical fitness.

Can you ever imagine being someone who leads a civilized life to not know about heart attacks, diabetes, high blood pressure, or cholesterol issues? No, right?

Our lives revolve around these diseases and getting used to these issues and adjusting to them is where the problem lies.

If we really want to live life and enjoy it more we need to work more towards adjusting our lifestyles.

It is disheartening to know that on an average even if we live a life of 75 years (which we consider normal and acceptable) that that is actually only half the actual expectancy of human beings.

Life expectancy was close to 150 years but as our civilization’s darker trends set in our desires changed.

Our lifestyle, food habits, and culture have undergone changes for the good but more for the bad. It is not that living the tribal life is what it demands but restoring the good parts is our duty.
