The premier functioning body in the world with respect to physical welfare of human beings known as the world health organisation (WHO) defines health in a wider sense as a condition of entire physical, mental and social well being and not solely the absence of disease or illness. In the present century, as man’s hot pursuit after monetary and fiscal gains continues, we ignore one of the most growing concerns in today’s world which is health. Even though the average life expectancy rate of man has increased, the rate of humans succumbing to various organ failures due to health issues as well as malnutrition has also increased. Time and again, man seems to forget that if he does not give heed to his health concerns, monetary gain is of no value. What use is a billion dollar money to an oil baron if he succumbs to paralysis and is not able to enjoy the comforts that monetary gain provides him due to his health failure.

1. Stair climbing. In my country, there’s a stair climbing campaign for workers. It is good exercise for toning legs and glutes but the repetitive climbing motion can put strain on your knees. This exercise requires to repeatedly bend knees and place your weight on them. It can lead to arthritis and injury if done excessively or incorrectly. It’s best to avoid if you have knee pain history.
2. Plyometrics. What is plyometrics? It is a type of exercise designed to produce fast and powerful movements. Okay, maybe it ain’t easy to understand. Just look at the picture below.
There’s a research running will help more than walking to lose weight. Paul Williams, a staff scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California suggest that running cold lose weight more than walk. The same amount of exercise in adults with a body mass index over 28 (deemed overweight) resulted in 90 percent greater weight loss for runners compared to walkers.
The new study published in the April issue of Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, Williams evaluated changes in body mass index (BMI) of more than 32,000 runners and more than 15,000 walkers.
Participants reported their weight and height for the preceding five years. They also supplied their waist size and information on their workouts, including miles run or walked the frequency, pace and any other exercise they did. The result found there some differences between runners and walkers. The walkers were older on average than the runner.
With over 25 million Americans suffering from type II diabetes and a 35.9 percent obesity rate in adults tipping the scale in the obese range, what’s it going to take for us to get on board with a healthier lifestyle? Sure, we are bombarded with advertisements for junk food, live in cubicles, and have an increasingly available slew of products and services that don’t require us to leave a computer screen…but pointing fingers doesn’t make anyone healthier.
Our brains are literally hardwired like a computer program to make it exceedingly difficult for us to make positive changes. So, despite your conscious desire to live healthier, make time for exercise, and quit that Twizzlers addiction, your subconscious is going to rally against you around every turn, rooting for you to break down and cave in, but willpower and determination can conquer even the most stubborn habits.
