The benefits of daily exercise are innumerable. Daily exercise does far more than just burn calories. Daily exercise strengthens muscle and bone thus reducing the risk of injury. Studies have shown that people who exercise daily recover from injury faster than people who do not exercise regularly. if injury occurs, the cumulative effect of daily exercise reduces downtime and speeds recovery. Daily exercise additionally helps to control blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol as well as weight.
