EXERCISE AND OXYGEN INTAKE\

During exercise, your body consumes large amounts of oxygen. In fact, this is part of what helps you to lose weight. The more oxygen your body consumes, the harder that you're working out. It's one reason that you typically lose a lot of weight when you first start working out. Because your body is not accustomed to working out as much, you use a lot of oxygen during the course of your initial workouts. This oxygen is required to feed your muscles and keep them working. As you get into shape and get used to working out, though, your body doesn't require quite as much oxygen as before
When you're first working out, you should warm up by stretching and even jogging for a few minutes to get your blood flowing and the oxygen pumping through your body. This is essential to exercising because it prepares your body for a workout. However, if you're in a rush or you just can't wait to get started, you may be tempted to skip the warm up. This prevents your body from getting prepared and can leave you gasping for air because your body isn't ready to send oxygen to your muscles so quickly. If you're not getting enough oxygen to your muscles, you won't be at your best and you may experience muscle failure. It's the reason you should make sure you're breathing properly when you lift weights or run for distance. You need to keep your muscles fueled with oxygen to prevent muscle failure.As you can see from the graph, the more you exercise the greater the volume of oxygen you take in which in the long run is fantastic for your cells
There are certain equipment you can use to measure your oxygen uptake to see how efficient your body is and it also gives you an assessment of your fitness level. In a clinical setting, you can receive continuous data because of the instruments used to get this figure.  you will have a means of measuring fitness which you can then use to improve your oxygen uptake and performance.In my next posting,we will discouse how much exercise we need.but remember GOOD HEALTH IS A CONTINOUS HABIT NOT AN EVENT.here are some exercise routines and resources that might interest you http://bit.ly/1dvus86 http://bit.ly/1eSvEoE ,

Surprising causes of high blood pressure, simple strategies to manage hypertension By: Bel Marra

How healthy is your blood pressure? And exactly what causes high blood pressure, anyway? It rises with each and every heartbeat and then falls as your heart relaxes between beats. It can change from minute to minute with exercise, stress, sleep, even your posture. The important thing is you want to keep it in the healthy range: Less than 120/80 mm Hg – less than 120 systolic and less than 80 diastolic – for adults age 20 and over. Most Americans, though, are reading closer to 140/90 or higher, which puts them in the high blood pressure range. That news is grim. The U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that the proportion of Americans reporting they have high blood pressure rose nearly 10 percent from 2005 to 2009. High blood pressure, or hypertension, affects nearly one-third of Americans. And nearly half of those cases are out of control, health officials say. Furthermore, nearly one in three Americans has prehypertension – a condition which shows elevated blood…

Osteoarthritis, the most common type of arthritis, gets worse with age and is caused by wear and tear over the years. Rheumatoid arthritis is caused by the immune system attacking the joints as if they were foreign tissues.
