The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - World Diabetes Day - Www.fit­ness­con­cept.com.my

A REL­A­TIVELY mod­est sin­gle ses­sion of ex­er­cise can im­prove the way your body reg­u­lates glu­cose, ac­cord­ing to a 2013 study ti­tled A Sin­gle Ses­sion of Low-In­ten­sity Ex­er­cise Is Suf­fi­cient to En­hance In­sulin Sen­si­tiv­ity Into the Next Day in Obese Adults pub­lished in Di­a­betes Care.

Ex­er­cise can boost your sen­si­tiv­ity to in­sulin, which is a hor­mone that helps keep your blood glu­cose level within nor­mal range. With an ac­tive life­style, you can bet­ter con­trol your blood glu­cose level, weight and blood pres­sure, in­crease “good” choles­terol and lower “bad” choles­terol.

Ex­er­cise may also help prevent heart and blood flow prob­lems, thus re­duc­ing your risk of de­vel­op­ing heart dis­ease and nerve dam­age, which are com­mon prob­lems for peo­ple with di­a­betes.

Among the most pre­ferred home ex­er­cise ma­chines is the el­lip­ti­cal, which is also known as a cross trainer. The NordicTrack E7.5Z el­lip­ti­cal is one of the best car­dio equip­ments avail­able, pro­vid­ing a full-body work­out with re­duced im­pact to your knees to keep you mov­ing longer.

The NordicTrack E7.5Z is a must-have el­lip­ti­cal. NordicTrack is a brand from the United States and dubbed the No.1 fit­ness brand in the world.

The el­lip­ti­cal makes work­outs easy and de­liv­ers a full-body work­out ex­pe­ri­ence right at home.

The NordicTrack E7.5Z el­lip­ti­cal comes with 20 built-in pre­set work­out apps that were de­signed by a cer­ti­fied per­sonal trainer to help you achieve your fit­ness goals.

For best re­sults, in­crease your per­for­mance by ad­just­ing the el­lip­ti­cal’s re­sis­tance con­trol. With this fea­ture, you get to op­ti­mise your en­ergy ex­pen­di­ture and may end up burn­ing more calo­ries and fat in less time.
