There are incidents of exercise-induced asthma with more vigorous activities such as running and jogging that expose the airways to larger volumes of dry air. The best activities for those with asthma are less strenuous activities such as yoga or swimming, or aerobics which develops your breathing and heart capacity. Aerobic exercise is the use of oxygen in the energy-generating process of the muscles in the body. Aerobic in fact means “with oxygen” and aerobic exercise uses oxygen, at moderate intensity levels, to burn fats and glucose in order to produce ATP (adenophine triphosphate), the energy carriers of cells. Regular exercise breaks down the glycogen into glucose.
But if the habit of exercising was stopped, fat metabolism slows down followed by a decline in performance level in the individual. Studies reveal that moderate exercise (and maybe even weight training) can help alleviate depression.
Regular exercise lowers blood pressure and cholesterol, improves overall cardiovascular fitness, controls the weight level, and promotes better sleeping habits.
