Uphill and Downhill

Did you know that going up and downhill have differing healthy effects on your metabolism … and resulting weight control for better management of PCOS symptoms?
Researchers found that hikers in the Alps experienced a quicker reduction of fats in the blood stream called triglycerides when going uphill, while blood sugar levels were lowered faster while going downhill. 
The variations occur because hiking uphill is concentric exercise in which muscles are shortened. This happens when you bend an arm or step upwards.
Conversely, hiking downhill is called eccentric muscle work. Other examples include extending your arm or actively resisting stretching, which occurs when you step down.
Other good news is that hiking in both directions lowers levels of LDL “bad” cholesterol, which is a crucial way to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, a condition closely linked with PCOS.
