Does walking and swimming balance body pH chemistry and VO2max in all muscle groups?
Although a greater percentage of body musculature may be activated in some sports more than others, not all muscle groups are engaged to the same degree (essential for flexibility and strength). Muscle balance has typically required a specific resistance workout tailored to each individual. Even a carefully designed program for muscle balance cannot, however, restore alkaline pH balance. A specialized exercise warm-up is necessary to achieve rapid total body V02max balance for acid base equilibrium as heart rate peaks. Otherwise body temperature, CO2 and lactic acid acidifies blood and cellular fluid.
S.A.I.D conditioning (Specific Adaptation to Imposed Demands) with exercise like walking and swimming doesn’t distribute blood flow equitably to the viscera, despite incidental movement of the colon; blood vessels in deep organs still constrict with the release of adrenaline from starting any exercise, they don’t expand. Depending on whether exercise is moderate or intense, the time it usually takes for the kidneys and lungs to balance body pH after a workout varies from a few hours to a few days (without factoring in diet, stress levels, etc.). In addition, although slowing down and reducing exercise intensity will reduce hyperventilation and pH acidity, subsequent cardiovascular, strength and endurance conditioning is also decreased.
Walking (like most sports workouts) can’t speed up the return to a normal alkaline body pH, essentially for three reasons:
- Walking doesn’t open up vascular circulation in the deep organs – which needs to be engineered with specialized movement design.
- Walking doesn’t awaken the anatomical cavities (head, chest, abdomen) in their natural order– which needs a precise breathing pattern and movement sequence to prevent competition for oxygen between body tissues.
- Walking doesn’t balance percentage V02max in opposing muscle groups equally – necessary for distribution of electrolytes at a speed that neutralizes acidification of muscle contraction.
Cellular metabolism is optimized when acid base equilibrium is restored pre and post exercise; without rapid normalization of body chemistry there’s no guarantee of potentiating anti-aging rejuvenation. More efficient metabolism ensures faster biochemical recovery, and biochemical balance ensures faster conditioning adaptation, faster weight loss, and a faster metabolic rate, with less time and effort. Of course, a warm-up with specific breathing and movement following precise natural laws can be engineered that helps the kidneys and lungs accelerate body pH balance fast, very fast.
Adding the Body’Fit pH Fitness™ exercise warm-up (pHx™) to any workout improves cardiovascular conditioning in the heart muscle and deep organs as well as muscles, without feeling tired, overheated or out of breath. Whether done fast, or slowly and gently, pHx helps build the necessary oxygen reserves to neutralize pH acidity. Movement of the spinal vertebrae in a specific sequence accelerates awakening of five major groups of organs, glands, and nerves in the anatomical cavities in order of greatest blood volume, helping to alleviate competition for oxygen between tissues. The pHx DynaStretch™ techniques help promote the equitable distribution of electrolytes, helping further speed restoration of acid-base equilibrium. And unlike S.A.I.D. conditioning, the pHx warm-up helps the body perform at it’s energy peak without acid stress, wear down of cells, or tear down of muscle tissue. I don’t know about you, but the bottom line is I like to make every minute count.
