When we are children we are practically in constant motion: walking, running, jumping, climbing. However, as we grow up, this constant activity slow down dramatically. Here is where we have to develop a plan for physical activities. Activities, such as sports, or in the form of regular daily physical exercises to keep our bodies fit is essential to maintain our health.
However, our for ever advancing modern technology while for one side, makes our lives’s daily tasks easier, it ends reducing drastically our physical activity, for example the amount of time spent hunched over the computer, taking the elevator instead of walking up or down to the next floor.
We must be aware of the mark reduction in movements of our bodies parts and as everyone of us knows, the saying: “use it or loose it”. And this statement is specially applied to the locomotion system of the body: the muscular system.
If we do not exercise enough, our muscular system gradually became smaller and its strength weakens. This result in atrophy of the muscles. From then on, the person needs to put more effort into his/her body’s physical activities to achieve what previously was an easy muscular task. Cause and effect.
