Overview of Main Points: For this persuasive speech I am going discuss the statistics on exercising, explain the advantages of exercising, and lastly the consequences that can come from not exercising.
A common adverse affect of overtraining for an elite athlete is ‘Overtraining Syndrome’. Overtraining syndrome is a neuroendocrine (neural input cells in the brain) disorder characterized by poor performance in competition, inability to maintain training loads, persistent fatigue, frequent illness, disturbed sleep and the most frequent in an elite athlete: alterations in mood state (Nature Immunology and Cell Biology Laurel T Mackinnon May 2000). Nearly all athletes experience the mood deterioration observed without impairment in sport performance. Since the goal is to reach a point of improved performance within the athlete the athlete then has to reach his/her limits of physical capacity (or even beyond) and since the balance between the right amount of training and overtraining is a fragile line many athletes suffer from this overtraining syndrome. It is not the hard training that makes you stronger in fact it makes you slightly weaker, it is the rest that will allow your body to grow stronger. Physiologic improvement in sports only occurs during the rest period following hard training. Due to this need for hardened training many elite athletes overwork themselves
Youth sports is a common thing for kids to be apart of growing up, parents sign their kids up in hope of creating lifelong friendships, encouraging physical activity, and most of all to have fun. Youth sports was also created to introduce all different types of sports to children and have it open their eyes to different activities. Calvin H. Chang is the author of Handbook of Sports Psychology. Cheng explains how stress is caused at such a young age and most likely because of the pressure of their parents. Cheng mentioned “behavioral indicators of state anxiety include insomnia, losing one’s appetite, nervous laughter and being jittery. Physiological changes include increased heart rate, respiration, galvanic skin responses, and palmar sweating. Psychological measures include state anxiety and other in-depth measurements of negative thoughts and feelings” (Cheng 172). The stress from youth sports is taking a toll on children and causing their body more harm than good. Parents want what is best for their children, but they are pushing them harder than what they can handle. Jane E. Brody is the Personal Health columnist for The New York Times. She joined The Times as a
It is a well-kenned fact that exercise is very propitious to the body’s overall health. Exercise has been shown to enhance the circulation of blood throughout the body, relinquish solicitousness, boost self-esteem, and ultimately is utilized as a treatment for noetic illnesses.
Exercise is physical activity that enhances or maintains physical fitness, but it is not limited to simply physical maintenance it can help in mental elasticity. As a small child is developing the brain is still in midst development. You can almost think of the brain as a muscle, but it is not directly exercised. Yet, in the process of playing games or simple activity can sharpen puzzle solving skill and elasticity for children. It still works for older people, but in age the brain becomes less elastic making the best time to give puzzle skills and general increased connectivity is while still a child. Then again one needs not forget the physical fitness aspect of exercises in increasing the longevity and quality of life. Then again it is no better time to form good habits then as a young child, it always seems to stick in long-term memory easier and longer when trained into it. Exercise also benefits cardiovascular fitness leading to less heart disease in old age. I always see one of the most annoying things in my mind “ I’ll exercise tomorrow” that there in essence why many people this day and age have a increase chance of heart disease and obesity. One does not need to set time aside to exercise. Exercise can be and can take place any place any were just be active. Like waiting in line in the store just standing there, why not do calf raises not as if anyone really cares I have done it countless times. This was the basic aspect I tried to convey to the kids and it is

Stress from school can be helped by having a good amount of exercise everyday, it helps relax your whole body when you're done. A lot of parents now days complain about their teen having a bad, aggressive behavior, and believe it or not exercise also helps teens get rid of those bad behaviors at school or at home. Secondly exercise helps teens have a better self-esteem. In the second passage Brennan explains "Exercise also boosts circulation and delivery of nutrients to the skin, helping to detoxify the body by removing toxins (poisons)." (Brennan 7) Teens often worry about their skin and appearance, mostly because at this age is when the majority suffer from acne. With exercise the skin gets healthier because of all the blood flow and nutrients it's receiving so teens won't worry about having bad skin. The third passage states "teenagers who took part in organized sports had more positive self-image and greater self-esteem than teens who were not physically active."(Neighbond 10) Joining school physical activities helps teens or children feel better about themselves and feel more confident. They don't have to join a sport but just

She has been a medical reporter for more than 25 years and has been named a journalism fellow by the American Academy of Neurology. This piece will be utilized in supporting the claim of cognitive benefits that recess can provide for our youth.
Physical activity has not only physical benefits. It also has a very big impact on social-emotional and cognitive aspects of child’s live. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention “The development of a physically active lifestyle is a goal for all children. Traditional team and competitive sports may promote healthy activity for selected youth. Individual sports, noncompetitive sports, lifetime sports, and recreational activities expand the opportunity for activity to everyone. The opportunity to be active on a regular basis, as well as the enjoyment and competence gained from activity, may increase the chances that a physically active lifestyle will be adopted.”
Throughout my time on placement in primary schools over the past four years, I have witnessed a variety of teaching strategies to get students motivated and ready for school in the morning. One approach I have seen in several schools is ‘huff n’ puff’, a morning activity in which students engage in some form of physical exercise, which may include running or active games outside. I believed this to be an effective strategy to release some energy and get the students settled down to learn. However, having a psychology background, I am interested to ascertain whether this morning physical activity has an influence on student mental wellbeing during the school day. I have noted mixed reactions to ‘huff n’ puff’ amongst students at my placement schools and I have wondered whether physical activity could positively or negatively impact student mental wellbeing due to confidence and self-esteem. According to the results of the second Australian Child and Adolescent Survey of Mental Health and Wellbeing, mental health disorders are prevalent amongst Australian children (13.9%) (Lawrence et al. 2016). With mental wellbeing being a potential issue in the classroom, I am, therefore, interested to discover whether exercise has an influence on student mental wellbeing. Problems with mental wellbeing may have a
Exercising: Exercising is not only beneficial for the individual engaging in it, but for the whole society. Exercising is scientifically proven to lower disease and improve happiness. When a society is more happy they engage in more positive behavior. A society that is more engaged will more likely advocate for justice and the well being of others.
Exercise dependency can have similar effects, as it also works on the limbic system, otherwise a dependency would not develop. Exercise, however, relies on the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus to release endorphins once glycogen stores are depleted. This could be why exercise dependence is more prevalent in aerobic athletes such as runners or triathletes. Essentially, the endorphins work in the same way as
Physical Activity is undeniably good for everyone, not only does it keep you fit and healthy but when started at a young age, it can set up good habits for life. Sometimes however, people do not take care of their physical wellbeing, resulting in obesity and other eating disorders which can be detrimental to their health.
