I have made it clear from the start of the blog how important exercise is to me and the builders and carpenters that I work with. I cannot stress enough how important it is for builders and carpenters to still maintain their fitness and energy levels while outside of work. I know it’s easy for builders and carpenters to assume that they do not need to exercise throughout the week because they do enough heavy lifting and physical work throughout the week, but this could not be further from the truth.
The fact is, exercise in regular intervals does a lot for the human body to maintain a healthy form throughout the day. Cardio is especially the most important for builders and carpenters, as even though heavy lifting and intense work throughout the week is good for building muscle and strength, it isn’t close to how good cardio is for maintaining healthy fitness and energy levels throughout your lifetime.
It’s also important if you want to live for a long time to make sure you regularly exercise with cardio. The benefits that it can give you in terms of endurance, strength, energy and other innocuous benefits is good on its own, but when you start to consider the benefits that it can give to your heart, mind and overall body strength is just as important as anything else. It’s so important to make sure that blood flows through your body properly and to make sure your internal organs are just as worked out as your muscles is important too.
It’s important to even run or jog once a week because it works almost as a body reset, and the small added benefits just a little amount of cardio exercise can give you is so important for you. You should really take that into consideration.
