In a nutshell:

Consistency in going to the gym to work out is the key to a healthier lifestyle. There will be some positive changes in your body that will happen after your few visits to the gym.

Some potential benefits you get from hitting the gym regularly are a stabilized mental health, increased brain function, muscle growth, and more.

Continue watching the entire video, and let’s talk about how your body changes once you start hitting the gym regularly.

After a day of hitting the gym, your brain function increases. Working out makes your body pump more blood to your muscles which will increase your blood flow. Increased blood flow is beneficial for your brain.

You will feel sore after a workout. As a response to the soreness of your body, your brain will release some types of chemicals, especially endorphins.

Endorphins are also known as the source of euphoria. Meaning to say, it can make the soreness go away, making you more motivated and dedicated to pushing harder.

After hitting the gym, your brain will continue to release more endorphins elevating your mood throughout the day.

Improving your energy occurs after a week of regular workout sessions in the gym.

It will take a few cardio workouts to improve your energy and for you to become fitter. After a few visits to the gym and a few workouts, the mitochondria cells in your body will rapidly increase.

What are mitochondria? Mitochondria are the power generators of your cells. In other words, mitochondria turn nutrients and energy into adenosine triphosphate.

Adenosine triphosphate is what powers the cells in your metabolic activities. The more mitochondria in your cells, the more energy you can produce and will become more efficient.

With that being said, your workout routines become easier as days pass by.

Increase in your muscle mass. After a month of regular visits to the gym, your muscle mass will change and will become more visible.

The slow and twitch muscle fibers found in your muscle cells will gradually grow and make your muscle stronger.

Your muscle size increases when you continue to let your muscles deal with higher levels of resistance or weight. The process is called muscle hypertrophy.

Muscle hypertrophy occurs as soon as the fibers in your muscles sustain injury or damage. Your body will repair the damaged muscle by fusing them, which in return increases the mass and size of your muscles.

Some hormones like testosterone, human growth hormone, and your body’s insulin growth factor play a major role in your body’s muscle growth and repair.

The said hormones work by improving how your body processes your protein intakes, it inhibits the breakdown of your protein intake, activates your satellite cells that are relevant in muscle growth,

Stimulates your anabolic hormones while promoting muscle growth and protein synthesis, and lastly enhancing your body’s tissue growth.
