Cooler hands may actually give you a longer workout time, according to a recent study posted on the WebMED site.
“By cooling the hands, you cool the rest of the body…The hands are a very important switch to our internal thermostat…anything to keep body temperature down will prolong exercise.”
A good exercise program will help keep your body temperature under control, and more in sync with the different times of the day.
For example, logging in at the local gym twice a week, should help you to be more productive during the day—your temp is higher in daytime and promotes higher productivity
No surprise that exercising prior to bedtime should bring on a good night’s rest. Again, it’s all about the body temperature, which goes much lower in the evening hours.
However, if pumping iron and logging miles on the treadmill are not your thing in your bid to stay in the fitness game then keep to a good walking program.
Now don’t get hot under the collar thinking how really boring your exercise program is right now.
That’s why the people at Nexercise rolled out their smartphone fitness app; it’s all about rewarding you through discounts on items that can help keep you charged and energized— energy bars, exercise videos…and even price breaks at natural food stores.
