Do you do exercise 3 times a week? You can be an active sedentary

The human being is designed to be physically active and it is not enough to do sporadic exercise, you have to move frequently and diversely. Move and stop being sedentary!

The human being, most of the time he can choose, chooses to make the least possible effort for intelligence and accommodation, but if he followed his instinct he would have to be in continuous movement since there are still remnants of when the ancestors of the current human species had to be very active To escape the dangers and to hunt. That is why it is curious that as humans have evolved mentally, we have become physically involved at the same time.

That is why sedentary lifestyle is a great evolutionary disagreement, as Robert Sánchez explains in the book “Walk, jump, dance. We have been programmed for tens of millennia to interact, interact with the environment and move in a very concrete way. Our physical problems appear largely when our behavior does not match this evolutionary program.

Just as we could not survive being upside down all the time because evolution has designed us to stand, it is more than evident that we are not designed to spend most of the day still, whether sitting or standing. Despite our attempts to patch the sedentary scourge based on some type of sporadic exercise such as fitness or other sports, it is not enough to stop being sedentary.

Therefore, how, how much and how often we move today has very little to do with the prevailing physical activity during most of our biological history. And now we are paying a high price with a host of diseases derived from this lifestyle such as diabetes, heart disease, overweight or obesity, among many others.

How did we move in the Paleolithic?

If you want to respect your evolutionary design, you will have to know the principles that molded and programmed it from the beginning. To begin with, the most important thing is to know the environment in which they moved a hundred thousand years ago, in forests of large trees, irregular terrain and rivers that cross. All these external factors were decisive to know how we moved. In addition, to survive you had to hunt animals and collect fruit within a considerable distance. Therefore, the fact of hunting and transporting food, moving in that arduous environment, fleeing the dangers and interacting with others, especially through sex, made up our body.

Over the thousands of years we gradually evolved from the profile of hunter-gatherer in the Paleolithic to that of farmer-cattleman in the Neolithic. Later, from the middle Ages, and at its peak in the industrial revolution, we became pawns. And today we have gone from the pawn to the office worker. We see that it has gradually reduced our physical activity not only at work, but in the way of getting food and living.

Frequency and diversity

The solution to stop being sedentary is to exercise. But in what way and doing what exercises? Doing Pilates, lifting weights in the gym or jogging in the park two or three days a week is healthy, but these sporadic exercises are not enough. If we have learned anything from our ancestors, they made frequent and diverse movements. The most important thing is not so much what exercises we do as we look at our complete mobility. That is why you must diversify your movements that you do frequently such as walking more, vary from sports or exercises. To give a practical example, it is better to do one day swimming, another running and another dance, than not doing the same thing many times.

Absolute Sedentary to Active Sedentary

The physical activity of the daily life of a sedentary person is practically nil. At seven or eight hours spent each night lying in bed, you have to add ten or more sitting in a chair, either working or watching TV. The sedentary person accumulates very little time of physical activity to move. Those who lead this lifestyle are absolute sedentary.

In contrast, people who exercise two, three or four days a week, but at the same time still leading a primarily sedentary life, are known as active sedentary. To visualize it, an active sedentary moves three hours a week, which is equivalent to about 156 hours a year of the total of 8,760, which is 1.78% of the time.

  10. Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog
    platform are you using for this website? I’m getting fed up
    of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at
    options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me
    in the direction of a good platform. asmr 0mniartist

  12. We are a gaggle of volunteers and opening a brand new scheme in our community.

    Your web site offered us with valuable info to work on. You’ve done a formidable task and our whole group shall be thankful to you.

  13. Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re
    using? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time
    selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  14. What’s interesting to note is that female pubic hair is
    about the same in thickness and in prevalence – but the male pubic hair tends to grow upwards to a
    line of hair that points at the navel of the man. We can’t really talk about male sex without talking
    about their equipment, now can we? Hopefully I can meet
    someone who will. What do you make someone fall in love with?
    Very nice article. I 100% agree that the “Just let it go and move on with your life” is something
    that people can only say if they are giving someone else advice
    and trying to calm them down. The four of us are getting together this weekend for a
    girdle and sex orgy. What’s the most appealing
    thing about every sex? What’s one thing that made you feel weak
    in your life that happened to you? What’s happened to
    you that made you a stronger person? Who in this world is the
    one person who knows you best? Who do you think the person you are today has had
    the greatest influence? Spoiler alert: These are unprecedented times that we’re livin’ in,
    and we’re all just trying to find ways to get our skin hunger met and feel a little
    less socially distant.

  15. I can understand why Trumpsters voted for Trump in 2016:
    they believed all his lies.
    But today, we know Trump won the election on a bed of lies.
    He paid porn stars to keep their mouth shut,
    has no Healthcare reform plan, didn’t share his taxes, didn’t
    “know all the best people.”

  16. Heya i’m for the primary time here. I found this board and
    I find It truly helpful & it helped me out much.

    I am hoping to provide something again and help others
    like you aided me.

  17. each time i used to read smaller articles that as well clear their motive, and that is also happening with this
    article which I am reading here.

  18. It was moments like this where I would fall deeper in love with him, feeling it in my core that
    he genuinely loved and cared about me. I knew intellectually that
    I needed to leave, but I didn’t think I could emotionally afford to lose his fucked up love.

    He was putting me through Emotional Abuse 101 and I knew it – but my heart, my love for him were too loud to really see what was happening.
    I’ve been wanting to say this to you for a couple of months now,
    trying to formulate the right words, and when you told me you wanted to
    stop, I knew it was the right time to say something.

    “Just so you know, we need to use condoms going forward,” I told my best friend after we
    fucked for the first time in July 2016. Let’s call him Alex, after Alexander “Xander” Harris from Buffy the Vampire Slayer a.k.a.

    Being my best friend and all, Alex was one of the first people I told
    the details of my first rape when it happened in 2015.

    Even if he hadn’t been, I was already a vocal feminist writer by the time we became
    romantically involved.

  19. We absolutely love your blog and find the majority of your post’s to be precisely what I’m looking for.
    Would you offer guest writers to write content for you?
    I wouldn’t mind publishing a post or elaborating on some
    of the subjects you write about here. Again, awesome site!
