The Body's Response to Exercise

The human body generally responds well to physical exercise and substantial improvements may be anticipated in heart and lung function, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility and one's ability to respond to stimuli. Some of the more noticeable changes from exercise may include:

  • Increased bone strength
  • Increased physical work capacity
  • Increased joint range of motion or flexibility
  • Improved sense of well being
  • Increased muscular strength
  • Improved glucose regulation (very favorable for diabetics)
  • Decreased blood pressure
  • Improved sleep patterns and levels of anxiety

Indeed, exercise can have a profound effect upon older persons - with the most "unfit" usually experiencing the greatest benefits!
