We all know that exercise is good for you, but when you understand why, it makes getting off the couch and into the gym a lot easier. Here’s an explanation of what happens when you work out, and how it can help you deal with the pains and the gains you’ll run into down the line.



The first thing you notice when you start working out is that you’re out of breath and your pulse is high. This is always a bit disconcerting, but it’s perfectly normal. When you first start working out, your body responds by raising your heart rate and causing you to breathe heavy. You will feel tired, sore and want to give up….BUT DON’T!!! IT GETS EASIER!!! Remember that!!!

There is truth to no pain no gain!!! Just remember to start of slow and easy. Over doing it will just set you back.

While those first few weeks are tough, exercise gets a lot easier as you go along, and it’s because your body starts adapting to your workout. Of course, everything in your body is connected, so while you might only feel a difference in your breathing or heart rate at first, Parr points out that it’s tied to your muscles as well.

So don’t give up!!! It gets easier, you will see results, and you’re gonna feel GREAT!!!
