EXERCISE CAN CREATE OR DESTROY YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM: WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?

SPORTS ATHLETES, DIFFERENT BODY TYPES

We watch different sports and we realize how different  the body structure of a sprinter is form that of a marathon runner or a cyclist. Why is that? Some sports require more sacrifice than others and eventually put more stress on the body.

Moderate intensity exercise ( range of 55%-75% of your maximum heart rate) has been associated with a very positive immune response and an improvement, at least temporarily, in the production of macrophages. The White Cells are your real army and you need them to be ready for battle. Exercise helps them as well.  This is in agreement with what doctors are saying– that consistent exercise can lead to many benefits to the immune system in both the short and long term.

MODERATE EXERCISE AS A REGULATOR FOR STRESS:

SUPER BODY, SUPER BRAIN ANTI-STRESS WORKOUT

In addition, exercise is a great regulator of stress. In stressful situations your whole body starts a very powerful mechanism, releasing cortisol. Exercise helps to regulate the body and calm it down. Numerous studies have shown that people with stressful lives have reported more colds than people with less stress. Stress is detrimental to your health.

IMMUNE SYSTEM DESTRUCTION, WHEN DOES IT HAPPEN? CAN EXERCISE DESTROY YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM?

However, if you train too hard, you might not building a powerful immune system but destroying it. In simple words, to perform certain activities your body will have to use whatever it has. That’s not good for your health. In these situations your body will start producing catabolic hormones (destroying) such as cortisol and adrenaline. The consequences are an increased heart rate, general muscular fatigue, joint  irritability and depression (ups and down in mood, feeling sad after exercising).

Therefore, we suggest monitoring your workouts, planning them and making sure you are not training too intensely. A good way of monitoring this intensity is always training in the heart rate zone and making sure you are building that powerful system that we all have, THE IMMUNE SYSTEM.
