So there you are, sitting on the sofa, remote in your hand – like a boss, pondering, “I should be exercising. If only I wasn’t too tired to get off this sofa!” On a real note though, fatigue is among the most common complaint that doctors hear. But you would be surprised to learn that professionals say that one of the best antidotes to fatigue and boosting energy is to exercise not less, but more!
“Studies now show that once you start moving around – even as simple as getting off the sofa and walking around the room, the more desire you would have to move, and ultimately, the more energy you feel,” says Robert E. Thayer, PhD, a psychology professor at California State University, Long Beach.
How does exercise boost energy?
A study in 2008 published in the journal: Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics; University of Georgia researchers discovered that inactive folks who normally complain of fatigue can increase energy by 20 percent while decreasing fatigue by as much as 65 percent by simply participating in regular, low intensity exercises.
So what are the best workouts to increase energy?
What is the most suitable workout to increase energy? If you are feeling lethargic and you think that you are affected by low energy, then a training routine may be just what you need. Here are some effective ideas and workouts for increasing energy levels!
The following are exercises will be sure to increase your energy level.
Resistance training includes forms of exercise that range from the use of stretch bands all the way to intense weightlifting. Whether it is to simply increase your energy and tighten up your physique, or it is to put on some muscle mass, it all depends on your goal and this will determine the extent of resistance required. It should be put in mind that there is a direct correlation between resistance training and your rate of metabolism.
Muscles burn much calories than fatty tissue do, and since resistance training increases lean muscle mass, your body will burn more calories per day, allowing you to eat more, in addition to making fat loss much easier.
Another type of physical exertion that should be included in your proper workout schedule is cardiovascular exercise. Performing exercises that raise up your heart rate for a moderate amount of time and at the same time burns an immense amount of calories. This will almost automatically lead to weight loss if your diet isn’t in a too bad condition, and that means that since you will be carrying less an amount of weight around, you will simply feel more energetic because moving around takes much less effort.
