Exercise is the most potent and underutilised antidepressant



Hi all…


Just like to take a moment and How Exercise is the most potent and underutilised antidepressant.

and most of all its free, If you know what do, Making the correct adjustments to aide in a healthy lifestyle.







Physical fitness is the capability to function effectively throughout your workday, perform your usual other activities and still have enough energy left over to handle any extra stresses or emergencies which may arise.

The components of physical fitness are:

*  Cardiorespiratory (CR) endurance – the efficiency with which the body delivers oxygen and nutrients needed for muscular activity and transports waste products from the cells.

*  Muscular strength – the greatest amount of force a muscle or muscle group can exert in a single effort.

*  Muscular endurance – the ability of a muscle or muscle group to perform repeated movements with a sub-maximal force for extended periods of times.

*  Flexibility – the ability to move the joints or any group of joints through an entire, normal range of motion.

*  Body composition – the percentage of body fat a person has in comparison to his or her total body mass.

So improving the first three components of fitness listed above will have a massive impact on body composition and will result in less fat.

And thus studies have confirmed that Regular Exercise is the most potent and underutilised antidepressant.

But excessive body fat detracts from the other fitness components, reduces performance, detracts from appearance, and negatively affects your health.


Factors such as speed, agility, muscle power, eye-hand coordination, and eye-foot coordination are classified as components of “motor” fitness.

These factors most affect your athletic ability. Appropriate training can improve these factors within the limits of your potential.


A sensible weight loss and fitness program seeks to improve or maintain all the components of physical and motor fitness through sound, progressive, mission specific physical training.




Main Principles of Exercise.

Adherence to certain basic exercise principles is important for developing an effective program. The same principles of exercise apply to everyone at all levels of physical training, from the Olympic athlete to the weekend gym warrior.

These basic principles of exercise must be followed.



To achieve a training effect, you must exercise often. You should exercise each of the first four fitness components at least three times a week. Infrequent exercise can do more harm than good. Regularity is also important in resting, sleeping, and following a sensible diet.


To be effective, a program should include activities that address all the fitness components, since overemphasising any one of them may hurt the others.


The intensity (how hard) and/or duration (how long) of exercise must gradually increase to improve the level of fitness.



Training must be geared toward specific goals. For example, people become better runners if their training emphasises running.

Although swimming is great exercise, it does not improve a 2-mile-run time as much as a running program does.


Providing a variety of activities reduces boredom and increases motivation and progress.



A hard day of training for a given component of fitness should be followed by an easier training day or rest day for that component and/or muscle group(s) to help permit recovery. Another way to allow recovery is to alternate the muscle groups exercised every other day, especially when training for strength and/or muscle endurance.


The work load of each exercise session must exceed the normal demands placed on the body in order to bring about a training effect.
