Significance Of Blood Supply

During A Woman's Exercise Program

by Phil Beckett

When you use proper woman's fitness techniques during an exercise session you'll notice that your blood will fill up the specific muscle or muscle groups you're training.

When you force blood into your muscles during your workout it helps to create the "micro trauma" or tiny little tears in your muscles that are needed in order for your muscles to improve and develop.

When you create these micro tears in your muscles, your muscle tissues will actually repair and rebuild themselves and develop a firm toned look.

But in order for this to happen, you have to allow sufficient rest. This is why you never work the same muscles or muscle groups two days in a row.

Your rest period is just as important as the actual exercise and nutrition portions of your fitness program.

When you're using proper exercise technique you'll feel a slight warmth, fatigue and the "burning" feeling people often mention at the end of each set for all the muscle groups you are working.

If you don't notice any of this happening during your workout then you may need to adjust your exercise form and technique.

In addition don't make the mistake of eating right before your fitness session. This can cause your heart and digestive system to work too hard and compromise the oxygen and nutrient delivery to the muscles you're working.

Eating too before your workout will not allow you to get enough blood into the muscles you are working.

Digestion takes a lot of blood to work effectively. The more blood your body sends to digest your food the less blood is available to go to your muscles, to rebuild and increase strength.
