Muscle Function and Muscle Recovery

Muscles allow a person to move, speak, and chew. They control heartbeat, breathing, and digestion. Other seemingly unrelated functions, including temperature regulation and vision, also rely on the muscular system.

Building healthy muscles is vital for good body function and strength. Although it may take weeks or months to notice muscle growth, consistent workouts with resistance training, aerobic activity, and a healthful diet should maximize results. 

A personal trainer may be able to offer insight into beneficial exercise methods and form, as well as interval and intensity of training programs tailored to individual needs.

As always, people should speak to a doctor before starting any new exercise or diet program, to make sure it is the right choice to achieve the results they want.
