The physical condition or physical form is not a static concept that remains stable indefinitely but rather is quite the opposite. Our physical form is subject to changes or continuous fluctuations depending on our level of activity or sedentary lifestyle.
It is important that we be aware that our current state of physical fitness is the result of a process of chronic adaptation to a regular practice of physical activity. When we carry out activity or physical exercise adapted in a regular and maintained way, positive adaptations take place that improve our physical state and by extension, our health.
Unfortunately these changes also occur in the opposite direction. When we stop practicing physical exercise, progressive maladjustments occur in our body that lead to a loss of physical form and a deterioration of our functional capacity.
It is very common to enter a negative expiration of physical loss that begins with a period of inactivity. This inactivity or sedentary lifestyle will cause a loss of our physical condition (worsening of our levels of strength, endurance, mobility, neuromotor abilities or body composition). This decrease in our physical form leads to a parallel worse physiological or psychological parameters that result in the appearance of some problems or diseases and in general, to a worse functioning of our systems.
