Lipids are present in all the tissues in the body and form an integral part of all cells. Appropriate balance in the concentrations of lipids in the body is important in preventing the development of lifestyle related diseases which occur due to the sedentary lifestyle of the people. The aim of this study was to determine the levels of different lipids within the blood of patients in fasting and after aerobic exercises. The exercises were carried out three times in a week a period of twenty five minutes. The study involved four... ? Effect of...

...Aerobic exercises utilize oxygen from the blood to burn glucose and fat within the body. The glucose stores of the muscle are broken down initially which is followed by the breakdown of fat and this occurs only when the exercise is prolonged. Glucose stored in the muscles is used for the initial 45 to 60 minutes of exercise after which the fat stores begin to get depleted. As fat is also burnt in this form of exercise, aerobic training is widely considered to be an ideal way to lose excess weight. In addition, aerobic exercises also increase the size and...

...Exercise in Pain Perception Introduction Scholars have investigated whether decreased sensitivity to pain occurs after undertaking aerobic exercise (Koltyn, 2002), for instance, resistance or isometric exercise. Many researchers have concluded that reduced perception of pain occurs during and after exercise under experimental and clinical conditions (Smith, 2004). Other researchers contest these claims and the results of these studies stating that the hypoalgesia felt in these cases is not a response to the aerobic exercise. The following sections of this paper will evaluate the various findings of researchers who have taken time to evaluate the role and effect of exercise... on the...

If so, what are some of them? Aerobic exercise, which can take the form of jogging, cycling, etc is one of the most effective way of burning fat in the body. So there is veracity to the hype surrounding this form of exercise, in terms of its ability to tone down body fat. Physiotherapists have identified a generic formula for determining the requisite heart rate at which fat burning happens. Usually the optimal heart rate to be maintained during aerobic exercise is determined... Much has been written in popular magazines about...
