Better heart and lungs
Regular exercise makes your heart stronger and lungs work better.
When done regularly, moderate- and vigorous-intensity physical activity strengthens your heart muscle. This improves your heart’s ability to pump blood to your lungs and throughout your body. As a result, more blood flows to your muscles, and oxygen levels in your blood rise.

Exercise helps also at combating high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity and stress.
Exercise helps prevent atherosclerosis.
It keeps arteries healthy by lowering LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and boosting HDL (“good”) cholesterol.
And it also helps by improving other atherosclerotic risk factors such as high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, stress, and various other factors that promote blood clots.
Enhance endurance and strength
As exercise request more blood, it makes grow more blood vessels which provides more oxygen to muscles.
Exercising muscles need more blood. And in response to regular exercise, they actually grow more blood vessels by expanding the network of capillaries. In turn, muscle cells boost levels of the enzymes that allow them to use oxygen to generate energy. More oxygen-rich blood and more efficient metabolism
