You’ll Never Know These Exercises Speed up Aging If You Don’t Read This

You’ll Never Know These Exercises Speed up Aging If You Don’t Read This

With the holiday season coming to a close, many of us are looking to start exercising for various reasons. Reasons include weight loss, looking and feeling great, overall health, and looking younger. Exercise is a great way to look younger, but very few of us know that some exercises can actually speed up aging. Below are three exercises that can speed up aging.

1. Spinning

Taking your daily worries on the Spinning bike or treadmill for hours is certainly better than a few post-work cocktails, and spinning can be helpful in slowing down the aging process. Although, doing long frequent cardio sessions can break down your muscles and increase the production of free radicals. Free radicals ultimately can damage the cells in your body resulting in faster aging. If your spin session exceeds sixty minutes, it can cause the body to affect muscle fiber negatively.

A research study looked the effect of heavy exercise on middle-aged women’s telomeres, an aging indicator in cells and discovered telomeres got shorter when women in middle age in their 30s to 60s do excessive exercise. With observations, it was concluded that sudden and heavy exercise requires excessive oxygen consumption, accelerating aging.

Modifications:

Limit your spin session to a thirty to sixty minute work-out. Shorter sessions are as effective as long as you are committed to being consistent.

Exercise a minimum of two hours after a meal—exercising on an empty stomach or after eating a light snack is great for fat burning.

2. Crossfit

The definition of Crossfit is “constantly varied, high-intensity, functional movement.” The key words are high-intensity. Anything that puts more stress on your body results in the speeding of the aging process. Crossfit is a strenuous form of exercise that can lead to overexertion and overuse injuries. Overexertion can lead to sleepless nights and darks circles and bags under your eyes, leading to looking older. Overuse injuries include extreme muscle soreness, unintended weight loss, an increased resting heart rate, interruption in your circadian rhythm, and decreased appetite, all factors that can lead to accelerated aging.

Modifications:

Plan rest into your exercise schedule. There needs to be a balance between exercise and rest. This is important in preventing chronic inflammation and soreness.

3. Jogging

Hard-core aerobic activity creates a significant demand on your body. Whether you are running, or biking—continuous aerobic stress brings on degeneration and aging. The aging occurs because initially your body will use glucose for energy and later will start consuming healthy body tissue like collagen and muscle for fuel. Once your body starts consuming health body tissue it can result in obstruction of exercise-induced-growth hormone-release (EIGR) response in the body—so you are not getting growth hormone from aerobic activity. Muscles will then start to accumulate glutamine—an amino acid which is a major booster of growth hormone production.

If muscle tissue wears down so does stored glutamine and the production of growth hormone. Thus, as muscle is reduced, the skin has less firmness and sags more. Without anti-aging hormones in the body you have accelerated the aging process. The other result from continuous aerobic activity, is the release of cortisol. Cortisol is released in stress situation, and blocks the human growth hormone leading to brittle bones, thinning hair, wrinkles, loss of skin elasticity and collagen.

Limit jogging to three days, with resting for one day, and repeating. You could also alternative with yoga or Pilates for variety. Yoga poses including Child’s Pose, Downward-Facing Dog, and Sun Salutations have been shown to improve circulation and boosy oxygen. New research shows that yoga may reduce the inflammation and help relax facial muscles and stress that also speed skin aging.
