BODY BREAKS DOWN IN JUST 7 DAYS
You might be surprised to find out how quickly the body detrains when inactive.
• Without flexing and movement, muscle fibers, tendons and ligaments start to shrink and get tight; movement becomes limited.
• Without the force of gravity against bones, they are not forced to store calcium and other minerals; they begin to get weaker.
• Without higher demand on the heart, capillaries that bring nutrient rich blood disappear and the muscles lose strength.
• Without movement balance and awareness of the body in space is reduced; steadiness declines and one becomes more prone to falling.
