Sustained Endurance training triggers a range of physiological adaptations that are beneficial for overall health and wellness. Cardiovascular changes include improved heart performance and blood circulation. Muscle stamina also improves in response to increased mitochondrial capacity, glycogen storage and other metabolic changes. Endurance Training is often associated with adoption of other healthy lifestyle changes, such as improved dietary choices. Improving overall health and reducing stress can enhance immune function and this may help improve acne symptoms in some individuals.
