Unit 1 Assignment 3 is remarkable that strength training can improve physiological function, reduce risk of injury, reduce stress on skeleton, and help to achieve a fittest body composition. All the factors cited above are related to only one area of the dimensions of wellness, but the benefits of a strength training can spread to basically all of them. Taking in account 4 hormones that are considered to be the “hormones of happiness”, it is known that physical activity can help improve their production. The endorphin is released during physical activity to “mask” physical pain, but its levels remain high even after hours of physical activity. The dopamine is the hormone that motivates you, and that’s one of the biggest factors of physical activity: motivate yourself and other to become better at something and that results in a better perspective of life. The oxytocin and serotonin are “social related hormones”, and both can be highly increased with regular physical activity. As simplified in the last paragraph, physical activity can help people develop better relationships, therefore they can be happier with themselves and those around them. The bond of fellowship developed during physical activity (being it with the personal training, coach, or any other company) will be increased during physical activity and in that way stablish a healthy and balanced hormonal rate. All dimensions of wellness can be improved with physical activity and this factor should be better explained to our society.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
