Walking and biking are both excellent forms of cardiovascular exercise which, when performed regularly, can ward off disease, shed pounds, improve mental outlook and reduce the likelihood of dying young. Each have their merits and drawbacks, and which is the best choice for you largely depends upon what you'll enjoy doing most, the health of your joints and how much weight you'd like to lose. “Like walking, biking is low-impact and easy. It's also fun, and according to NutriStrategy, burns a lot of calories - significantly more than brisk walking.” (Bigelow) You’d be forgiven for wondering but stair climbing can have a significant and positive impact on an individual’s health over time.
2. Why is the warm-up phase of your training program important? The warm-up phase is important because it will reduce the risk of injury.

Question 5: Does HITT (high intensity interval training) exercise produce greater health benefits when compared to traditional exercise? Exercise is one where a person exerts mental and physical strength to produce aerobic activity and is clinically proven to prevent health problems that are associated with numerous long-lasting illnesses and diseases (Gibala et al, 2012). There are two main categories of exercises: High Intensity Interval Training or Traditional exercises which are both discussed in this review. High intensity interval training (HIIT) or high intensity intermittent exercise is a form of physical exercise where a person is performing intermittent bursts of vigorous activity that exceeds anaerobic threshold for a couple of minutes combined with rest periods of inactivity or low intensity exercises (Nybo et al, 2010) such as walking which is repeated several times. This is done because it is said to increase aerobic capacity therefore having more oxygen intake as well as the prevention of hypertension and improving cardiovascular diseases and consequently improving quality of life in patients with heart failure or coronary artery disease (Guiraud et al, 2012, p 599).
Lastly, exercise increases macrophage production, salivary immunoglobulin A, and increase immune cell circulation improving the function of the immune system. Psychologically, they diminish anxiety and depression, control stress and minimize its negative effects on the body, improve self-esteem, self-concept, and body image, and improve cognition and problem solving. There are two types of fitness, aerobic fitness and muscular fitness, with their own benefits. Aerobic fitness pushes your body and forces it to adapt to adapt to the overload that the exercise is causing when trying to complete continuous tasks. This will later enable you to participate in harder workouts and exercise in the future.

Bones have play a are very important role to the body, and the secondary lifestyle with lack of exercise such as working continuously with the computer for many hours can destroy bones because it makes them become weaker . To prevent this damage on bones, many people choose running to support their bones and make both bones and muscles become more firmer because when we are running, stress is put regularly on each side of the body.
