Excercising consistently...

As the expression goes, "use it or lose it," means gains from exercise are quickly reduced by inactivity.

The benefits of training begin to disappear after approx. 2 weeks of inactivity.

Muscular endurance declines, and activities of certain oxidative enzymes decrease by as much as 40%.

By the 4th week of inactivity, muscle glycogen levels also may decrease by 40%.

Also, flexibility quickly diminishes with inactivity.

Exercising on a consistent basis serves to keep our body's functioning at an optimal level and it is essential to reaching our fitness goals.

Consistency truly is the foundation to success!
