Clinicians who understand how the body responds to exercise, how aerobic training improves cardiovascular fitness, and the benefits and principles of prescribing aerobic exercise can effectively encourage patients to become active and optimize programs for those already active. Patients who are active at an early age and who continue to enjoy active lifestyles as adults will attenuate the normal losses in cardiovascular endurance, strength, and flexibility that accompany aging and sedentary… 
Benefits, need and importance of daily exercise
Evidence of the benefits of exercise for all the body systems is reviewed to reduce stress and anxiety, boost happy chemicals, improve self-confidence, increase the brain power, sharpen the memory and increase the muscles and bones strength.
Aerobic Cycle Exercising in a Rehabilitation Program with a Wider Choice of Intensity
In this study, a wider choice of intensities was left to the patients without giving up the potential to reduce cardiac risks factors, and a tendency of 33% of the patients to exercise at higher blood lactate or blood pressure levels underlined the necessity of limiting the exercise intensity.
Fitness tracking reveals task-specific associations between memory, mental health, and exercise
It was found that participants with similar exercise habits and fitness profiles tended to also exhibit similar mental health and task performance profiles, and were task-specific in that different exercise patterns or fitness characteristics varied with different aspects of memory, on different tasks.
Efficacy of Moderate Exercise Training on Cardiopulmonary Fitness among Elderly Women
A significant improvement in most of the cardiorespiratory fitness indices as significant increase in the maximum oxygen consumption (VO2max) , and significant increase of the forced vital capacity are revealed.
A Review of the Physiological Effects of Exercise Duration and Intensity during Walking and Jogging
It is submitted that both forms of aerobic exercise, jogging and walking, are of great importance to human health but they differ in their levels of intensity and duration.
Exercise dose, exercise adherence, and associated health outcomes in the TIGER study.
The HRPAS is a quantifiable measure of exercise dose associated with improvement in health indicators beyond that observed when adherence is defined as session attendance, and a predictor of health outcomes.
Acute Effects of Esports on the Cardiovascular System and Energy Expenditure in Amateur Esports Players
Introduction Esports is practiced by millions of people worldwide every day. On a professional level, esports has been proven to have a high stress potential and is sometimes considered equivalent to
Continuous and interval training exercise programme: its relationship with biochemical parameters among some Nigerian undergraduates
It can be concluded that continuous and internal training exercise programmes are effective in managing stress-induced pathological (degenerative) diseases and exercise is recommended as a non-pharmacological adjunct in managing some metabolic syndrome such as non-insulin dependent diabetes and obesity among Nigerian students.
Effects of 8-week endurance and resistance training programmes on cardiovascular stress responses, life stress and coping
Both endurance and resistance exercise activities may be effectively used to improve stress regulation competence while having less impact on changing specific coping strategies, and partly support that exercise training has stress-reducing benefits regardless of the type of exercise.
A Sports Nutrition Perspective on the Impacts of Hypoxic High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) on Appetite Regulatory Mechanisms: A Narrative Review of the Current Evidence
High-intensity interval training (HIIT) and low-oxygen exposure may inhibit the secretion of appetite-stimulating hormones, suppress appetite, and inhibit dietary intake. Physiological changes


ACSM Position Stand: The Recommended Quantity and Quality of Exercise for Developing and Maintaining Cardiorespiratory and Muscular Fitness, and Flexibility in Healthy Adults
The combination of frequency, intensity, and duration of exercise is found to be the most important factor in determining the intensity and quality of exercise a person receives.

Physical activity and cardiovascular health.
All Americans should engage in regular physical activity at a level appropriate to their capacity, needs, and interest, and children and adults alike should set a goal of accumulating at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity on most, and preferably, all days of the week.
Age-predicted maximal heart rate revisited.
Familial aggregation of VO(2max) response to exercise training: results from the HERITAGE Family Study.
The trainability of VO(2max) is highly familial and includes a significant genetic component, and the most parsimonious models yielded a maximal heritability estimate of 47%.
Physical activity and public health. A recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American College of Sports Medicine.
Every US adult should accumulate 30 minutes or more of moderate-intensity physical activity on most, preferably all, days of the week.
Prevalence and trends in obesity among US adults, 1999-2000.
The increases in the prevalences of obesity and overweight previously observed continued in 1999-2000, and increases occurred for both men and women in all age groups and for non-Hispanic whites, non- Hispanic blacks, and Mexican Americans.
