Taking my exercise pills

The physical and psychological benefits of regular exercise can’t be disputed and those who regularly do so are the best witnesses of how it contributes in a positive way to their health and wellness.  

Let’s toss yours truly into the witness brigade.

Recent research by a group of Australian university researchers has revealed new discoveries about a thousand molecular changes that occur in our muscles when we exercise.  This research provides the world’s first comprehensive exercise blueprint according to an article appearing on the University of Sidney’s website.

The co-author of this research shared his enthusiasm about this research finding by commenting how it’s a major breakthrough because it allows scientists to use this information to design a drug that mimics the true beneficial changes caused by exercise.

In other words, perhaps down the road will be a new pill that one can take providing many of the same benefits of exercise without having to do so.

And when that day comes, asking your regular workout partner that it’s time to head to the gym may generate this reply:  “You go by yourself.  I’m staying home and taking my exercise pills.”

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum
