A special role motor mode active

Modern technological progress brings to mankind is the danger of hypokinesia, immobility. He is in the full sense of the word immobilizes us, displacing intense muscular work and from the sphere of production (mechanization of labor-intensive), and from everyday life (well-appointed apartment), and from the sphere of transport (urban and personal transport). The resulting deficiency of muscular activity represents a formidable danger. After all, muscular work is the work of all organism. So, if underused muscles, the law "who does not work shall not eat" hits not only the muscles. In the Legion parasites fall and heartand respiratory apparatus and nervous system. Hypokinesia is considered by modern medicine as a risk factor in the origin of a number of diseases, first of all diseases of the cardiovascular system, such as hypertension, ischemic heart disease and, of course, is the Foundation of all cardiopathology our days atherosclerosis.
At an early age, we have a place instinctive regulation of motor activity. In boarding schools set such experiments. Hung from the belt of the child pedometer and at the end of the day, before going to sleep, noted how many steps the child is done for the day. It was convinced that the child has a sort of a certain motor passport - every day pedometer shows the same number of steps per day, for example 15 thousand. One day the child, made before lunch 5 thousand steps, stack after lunch in bed and leave without movement before Breakfast. The next day the child runs more than their "normal" 15 thousand steps, and 25 thousand! Exactly 10 thousand steps he will run in excess of the usual and common two-day rate will perform. With age, this instinctive regulation and goes to a vicious cycle: less motion - less desire to move - even fewer movements, etc., This vicious circle must be cut, using different kinds of physical exercises. The Arsenal of their extremely high: morning hygienic gymnastics, industrial gymnastics, sports sections in young people, groups of health among people of middle and senior age. Finally, it should be widely used self-study - with friends, with family in their free time. Of these classes should be compulsory daily and weekly contributions in cash to your health.
Sometimes ask, what types of exercise to do better. This question cannot be answered unambiguously. Any kind of exercise, if they do not systematically bring improvement. For example, gymnastics of the system of yoga, which is dominated by static postures (asanas), may be, should give less than type exercises Jogging or walking on skis, which is a more significant training load on the internal organs, but the systematic practice you can also get excellent health results. Do what you love and what you can! Personally I like skiing and swimming, as they give the strain on the muscles of the body.
Sometimes they say that sport is the destiny of the young and the elderly is already too late to start physical exercises. Hard to find a more profound mistake. In his youth, sport only helps the age development, which without it goes upward. In other words, young sports ally age, they act together. In Mature years of age reduces the body's ability, and physical exercises increase them, i.e. they really counteract the age of fading. Thus, for people of middle and old age, physical exercise is even more important than for the youth, they give qualitatively different outcome than the age trend, actually counteract aging. There are very good examples, testifying not only about the enormous benefits of sport exercises for older people, but that's never too late to start such activities.
Than older people, the more the body is committed to peace and the more important it is to overcome this desire, which is another element of imperfection of our nature.
That to begin exercise is never late and always helpful, says the example of the Moscow hygienist Vladimir Alexandrovich of Litkens. In 1960, at the age of 70 years, he decided to start such activities. Became 3 times a week to visit a health group at the stadium in Luzhniki and 3 times a week to swim in the pool "Moscow", and once a week to ride a horse at the Hippodrome. In 1985 he was 94 years. He now regularly continues the same classes - in slightly reduced volume (at the stadium the same 3 times, and in the pool 2 times a week, horseback riding, left). When in Moscow, I always try not to miss the opportunity to swim in the pool with my senior colleague and friend who once was my teacher in the Institute, and now is the clearest example of how to build your lifestyle.
We can safely say that exercise is running from old age.
