Exercise is an important way to manage diabetes. Not only can exercise help you achieve beneficial weight loss, but every time you exercise, it helps to lower your blood sugar and helps your cells accept insulin more efficiently. Diabetic neuropathy can make exercise painful, with burning, tingling, and numbness in the extremities, especially the feet.
Being active is an important part of any weight-loss or weight-maintenance program. When you're active, your body uses more energy (calories). And when you burn more calories than you consume, you lose weight loss.
Because 3,500 calories equals about 1 pound (0.45 kilogram) of fat, you need to burn 3,500 calories more than you take in to lose 1 pound. So if you cut 500 calories from your diet each day, you'd lose about 1 pound a week (500 calories x 7 days = 3,500 calories). Exercise along with cutting calories helps boost your weight loss. Exercise is also important for maintaining your weight and not regaining weight.
As a general goal, include at least 30 minutes of physical activity in your daily routine. If you want to lose weight, maintain weight loss or meet specific fitness goals, you may need to increase your activity even more.
Too much exercise can be harmful. The body needs sufficient rest, which is why most health experts say one should exercise every other day or 3 times a week. Without proper rest, the chance of stroke or other circulation problems increases, and muscle tissue may develop slowly.
Over-exercising does more harm than good. For many activities, especially running, there are also significant injuries that occur with poorly regimented exercise schedules. In extreme instances, over-exercising induces serious performance loss. Unaccustomed overexertion of muscles leads to rhabdomyolysis (damage to muscle) most often seen in new army recruits.
Stopping excessive exercise suddenly can also create a change in mood. Feelings of depression and agitation can occur when withdrawal from the natural endorphins produced by exercise occurs.
Physical exercise releases opioid peptides or endorphins, opiates that exhibit synergetic effects with other neurotransmitters, causing exercise euphoria, also known as "runners high", and causing addiction to physical exercise and possibly decreased sex drive. This usually leads to over-exercising and those suffering exercise addiction are often described as "gym rat", "gym addict", "exercise freak", etc.
Excess is unhealthy. Exercise should be controlled by each body's inherent limitations. While one set of joints and muscles may have the tolerance to withstand multiple marathons, another body may be damaged by 20 minutes of light jogging. This must be determined by each exerciser
The Vibraslim ® Vibration Exercise Machine is a scientifically calibrated machine that produces vibrations from the feet up distributing vibrational energy to the entire body. These vibrations results in rapid and intense muscle fiber contractions from 5 to 30 times per second .
The Vibraslim ® fitness workout is so quick and fun, everyday you will look forward to workout! Just 10 minutes a day 3 - 7 times a week and you are on your way.
Whole-body Vibration Exercise fitness is backed by many years of indepth scientific research. Vibration Exercise was invented by the Soviet's Space Program, which is now used widely for health and fitness. Russian researchers experimented with Vibrating Exercise technology and found that by using this equipment they could not only stopped the loss, but even further increased bone density and strengthened muscle tissue.
As of 2010 over 750 medical research reports on vibration exercise machines have been conducted in the USA, Canada and Europe. This continued research done over the past two decades has shown that Vibration Exercise has many other benefits such as:
