A child with a passion for volleyball and practices is one person with better physical performance than one with a sedentary lifestyle. Here are a few benefits the game has to your physical health
Burns excess calories and fat
Saturated fat takes time to absorb or even burn in the body. Therefore, the excess is what contributes to weight gain.
The minimum number of calories in any volleyball game is about 133. Whether you consume saturated or unsaturated fat, you all get rid of them in a single game.
In competitive volleyball games, you lose at least 120 calories, depending on the time you take on the volleyball court.
Volleyball is a game ideal not only in weight loss but also in maintaining a healthy weight hence reducing heart-related illnesses.
Tones and develops your muscle
As you squat to receive the ball from your opponent and quickly get back to position to wait for the next move, all your body limbs engage in physical activity.
The more you play- common in competitive sport- your cardiovascular system gets appropriate physical exercise recommended by health experts.
The constant movement of both the upper and the lower limbs supports the building of muscle as well as toning them. It means you have no room to store any fat in the body. Instead, the fat finds its way to provide the right energy to tone the muscles. Do you need to work out after such a tiresome exercise?
