    Ethics, pesky little things aren’t they?

    Im quite fat and every time I start I feel ashamed of my body, and when start with basic calisthenics I feel awkward and start overthinking and then leave the gym because it feels like a waste of time 🙁

    Been in this loop for years and can’t exit it 🙁

  5. Amandeep Singh on August 20, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    Yes make more videos

  6. Raymond Lam on August 20, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    I agree with the video. I am almost 60 I exercise everyday and I have very few gray hair. My friends always ask me and wonder what’s my secrets. I know the benefits of exercise at an young age but did not know the reason until now. Enhanced tissue perfusion due to greater cardiac output. Strong myocardium means slow pulse at rest therefore does not require as much oxygen V8 vs inline 4.

    Great video. No restating every point 10 times to make it longer; nice, short and concise. I’ll actually remember this video and hopefully do it. Especially now that I have very high blood pressure all of a sudden, and I’m losing muscle.

    4) Prevention of Cancer (less likely to develop breast, colorectal, intestinal, prostate…)

    What if cycling (London, UK) is to dangerous – coz you’re too unfit to do 40mph – and PE at school has drummed out of you any inkling of the remotest enjoyment of exercise … unless it’s got another ‘more primary’ function, such as getting from A -> B on a bike? Move to the countryside 🤷🏻? 😢

  14. Sharon Eicher on August 20, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    Have there been studies of neurodivergent brains and exercise and brain chemicals? Just anecdotally, it doesn’t seem that neurodivergent brains become “happy brains” through exercise. This is especially bad because if prone to depression, the worse thing for you is sitting inside the house.

  15. Judith Stelmach on August 20, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    Like your well rounded approach….still what happened to the dog??? Your videos inspire inform nice to know there are people like you.. good thing👏🏻👏🏻

    So I have had chronic night terrors ever since I can remember. After increasing my exercise and losing about 15% of my body weight, I have experienced a decrease in my disruptive sleep episodes. I’ve even begun having body positive dreams!

  21. S J Boyer on August 20, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    Good, good. Thanks.

  22. Mukhtaar Sonvadi on August 20, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    A person I know played tennis every day for 20+ years. He died of brain cancer at age of 43. What’s your take on this, doc?

  25. Rocky xxxtentacion on August 20, 2021 at 10:46 pm

    what are the 10 benefits of exercise? can someone give what are the 10 benefits?

  26. buildtherobots on August 20, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    I have a friend who is 80 years old. She used to belong to overeaters anonymous and AA and she owned a Diet Center franchise for a while. There was a point when I was deflecting her attempts to get me to follow her diet plan I said something about being more active and exercising. She shut me down immediately and said that wouldn’t help. I was a bit shocked by her delusional beliefs. However, I was not at all surprised when she was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes a few months later.

  27. Stacie Purvis on August 20, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    Thanks for the video, very informative 😉. My problem is that I ❤️🍰 cake! So the struggle is real Doc…

  28. jomommytotwo on August 20, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    FYI. I started exercising 30-40 minutes, 3-4 times per week and in 1 year I lowered my cholesterol by 30%.

  29. Micaela Duran on August 20, 2021 at 10:48 pm

    Please make a video on advantages and disadvantages of masturbation/ JO .
    And what is your opinion on No-Fap ?

  32. Sheetal Kataria on August 20, 2021 at 10:52 pm

    Stretching after exercise is much better than stretching before and this will give you much more strength and stamina. Regular workout is essential for our body and for this you can take herbal protein supplements from Planet Ayurveda

  36. Pop The Canvas on August 20, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    I loved this video! It’s so true! I’ve been running outside about 3-5 Times a week based on the weather now also mixing in some HIIT workouts once or twice a week since Covid began, so almost a year now consistently and it has definitely done all those things for me that you mentioned. My mood improves pretty much instantly whenever I run even if there’s something that’s causing me stress. I’ve also noticed small changes in my diet improves my endurance levels as well, the weirdest one I found is that coffee actually slows me down and I’ve been drinking it for years. Only now I stopped and I have more energy! It’s so odd to me, but there you go. Have you ever heard of that? Is that normal?

  38. Cowtownbaldie on August 20, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    Exercise is like medication. In the right dose it is very beneficial to some people but if you overdo it…it can lead to other health issues.

  39. The whirlwind couple on August 20, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    I don’t know what is different…. you look brighter, happier! Whatever it is keep it up! Thank you for the good advices 🙂

  40. Susan K on August 20, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    Nice! I wish I had 100 minutes a day to exercise.

  41. Andie Cowan on August 20, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    Well instead of ‘forcing’ people to participate in the study, get people who does each of those categories on their own accord and put them in the study ‘with consent ofc’. They gone smoke etc anyhow with or without the study. Just now there’s a benefit behind it.

  43. Ly Huy on August 20, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    Concise explanation. Thank very much.

  44. Mona Singh on August 20, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    Running on concrete/hard grounds may cause knee injury….grass/non concrete ground recommended… 🏇 also prefer just ground…

  45. Jeff Shannon on August 20, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    Does everyday exercise cause Osteoarthritis?

  46. Paul Whitcomb on August 20, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    Good point about exercise eliminating the urge to smoke cigarettes. Cardio/respiratory (vs weight-bearing) exercise works best. Join a local running club or hire a private fitness trainer for a few sessions to get started. You’ll see.

  47. Pam on August 20, 2021 at 11:12 pm

    Appreciate the video

    Physical exercise is importante for all ages. Some like volleyball , others surf, football, swimming, dance etc…Everyone should have a healthy style of life 🙂
