Technogym: Tone Those Muscles

Lifestyle changes in recent decades have led people to adopt a sedentary lifestyle. Many spend most of the day doing activities that don’t make their muscles work properly and only allow them to burn a small number of calories. Even if you simply want to get a toned body, regular physical activity can bring a great deal of benefits.

Even if you just want to improve your physical appearance to get a toned body, regular physical activity can bring a number of benefits:

Toning can increase strength and reduce illnesses:
Toning your muscles reduces fat and body weight. Weight loss on the body’s skeleton results in an improvement in health, which benefits the heart, joints and skeletal system. A toned body provides more strength, energy and flexibility, and can decrease the risk of developing certain diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.

Toning improves posture and mental health
Some forms of toning, especially exercises that focus on the muscles of the abdomen and torso, can improve posture. In fact, several low-impact standing weight exercises help tone muscles and strengthen bones, improving posture, reducing the risk of osteoporosis and reducing tension on the spine.

Muscle toning exercises, especially when combined with heart and strength exercises, can help improve mental health. Studies have shown that people who train regularly have more energy, reduced stress levels and greater self-confidence and self-esteem.

More attention at work thanks to toning
Body toning helps not only improve your physical fitness and mental health, but also your lucidity and concentration at work, thanks to increased attention. This renewed vitality will reduce the intake of caffeine or sweets to recover attention, improving the overall diet, and thus the toning of the body.

Enjoy life
A toned and healthier body allows you to live more experiences. An increase in strength allows you to take part in physical activities such as swimming, dancing, walking and other sports that those who are out of shape may not be able to practice.

Using only a few muscles is never good: the muscular apparatus needs to be systematically spurred on in order to be kept healthy and efficient. In order to stimulate it, it is necessary to “force” it to overcome the “external resistance forces”, whether it is its own body weight or external loads such as handlebars and rockers. Benefits range from improving the most important metabolic functions to increasing overall functionality. Training your muscles also helps change the appearance of your body, which becomes more toned.
