Loss of muscle tone ... and how to deal with it
With age, the impact of gravity begins to reap its fruits, and your body changes. This is especially true if your muscles do not have regular physical activity and stop holding in their proper position what they are supposed to hold. We notice that we are getting thicker, heavier and wider, without even adding weight. The skin begins to sag. If the muscle tone weakens, then the muscles also begin to sag and drag the rest of it.
The best means of protection from all the above troubles is physical training.
However, there are a number of additional special means that we can use to minimize the negative impact of gravity. One of them is an inclined board. This device is particularly effective and easy to use. Another means is to perform a simple gymnastic exercise called a "stance on the shoulder blades" ("birch"): lie on your back, pull your knees to your chest, tear the pelvis off the floor and, propping your back with your hands, slowly straighten your legs up.
Forcing the fluid - blood and lymph - in the body to flow up, you improve the nutrition of cells and speed up the process of removing metabolic products. Improves the supply of oxygen to the brain, which affects more clear thinking, memory improvement. The displaced and drooped organs return to their former position. Smoothes out wrinkles and improves body contours. Due to improved blood supply, the tone of the skin increases and the complexion improves.
Inclined board — великолепное и до предела простое изобретение. Считается, что пребывание на наклонной доске в течение 15 минут равносильно сну в течение четырех часов. Это прекрасное средство отдыха и расслабления после работы, которое дает к тому же возможность настроиться на вечер отдыха.
In an inclined position it is very good to perform exercises for deep diaphragmatic breathing. In order to get the most out of the exercise, you should put your hands on your stomach and take a deep breath;
when exhaling, gently press down on the stomach. By regularly performing this exercise, you will greatly improve the circulation of lymph and its penetration into the cells.
Very good, if you can practice on an inclined board 2 times a day for 15 minutes. Achieve this duration of the session should be gradual, starting with a few minutes in one approach, especially if you feel discomfort in an inclined position. Also, remember that you can not climb abruptly from an inclined board: this can lead to a loss of consciousness.
