Getting in Shape with Bender Ball

Archive for the ‘Bender Ball Summer’ Category

Exercising in the summer can be a challenge. The high temperatures of the summer and higher humidity in many places, can add to the stress of exercise on the body. If care isn’t taken to drink plenty of liquids, and take frequent restful breaks, the body could react by developing heat related ailments like heat cramps, exhaustion and even heat stroke.

The dangers from heat stresses are almost nothing when exercising with the Bender Ball. First of all, it is an indoor activity which can be done in an air conditioned environment, or during the cooler hours of the day. In addition, Bender Ball exercise is not a highly stressful workout resulting in exhaustion or perspiring. In most cases ten minutes of exercise with the Bender Ball is all it takes to develop the strong, slim abs you are striving towards.

Summer is back! It is probably a good idea to make some changes in your exercise regimen to account for the hotter days. First of all, if you run, try to time your outing to the cooler parts of the day, either early morning or at night. Even when you are indoors working out with your Bender Ball, it is probably a good idea to exercise in the cooler hours of the day.

Exercise increases body temperature, and if you add to that the additional heat in the environment, you have created a stressful situation for your poor old body. Your body is programmed to stay at the perfect 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit, and it does whatever it needs to  in order to maintain that inner equilibrium.

When exercising in the summer, whether it is with your Bender Ball or playing a game of basketball, tennis, or whatever your favorite outdoor sport is, it is important to remember that because of the increased ambient heat of summer, combined together with increased exercise, your body must work harder to maintain its inner temperature of 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit.

The body has a few mechanisms to keep cool as the heat rises, whether through climbing outdoor temperatures, or exercise, or both.  The body stays cool by increasing the circulation of blood closer to the skin so that heat is removed more readily, but this decreasing the amount of blood available to the muscles for exercise. This in turn increases the rate of the heart.  There is also more stress on the body in places where humidity is high, because perspiration, which cools the body when the moisture evaporates off the body, has a harder time evaporating in higher humidity.
