The human body is an amazing organism. When trained properly it can do amazing things.
Just think about marathon runners - running non-stop for 42.2kms?! That just blows my mind!
There are a few fun facts for you:
- If you had every single muscle in your body work together at the same time, you could lift about 50,000 pounds
- For every 25 pounds of excess weight, your body needs to pump blood through an extra 5,000 miles of blood vessels
- How much air do we breath every hour? About 700 gallons of air
- Regular exercise can reduce the signs and symptoms of PMS (surely a male favorite!!)
I'm going to my Aqua Spinning class tonight to get that air pumping!
