World Diabetes Day – How training for a StrongmanRun can reduce the risk for diabetes

Running and fitness exercises help you to overcome the original of all obstacle courses and are supposed to prevent the risk of diabetes. But how does it actually work?

There are two types of diabetes: Type 1 means there is a lack of insuline which is important to regulate the blood sugar. Type 2 is the form we are talking about: it usually comes up in later years of life due to an insuline resistence of the body cells. This way the insuline cannot transport the glucose into the cells, fat cells intensify this effect.

So how would a StrongmanRun Training help you to stay healthy in this regard? The cells of your muscles contain glucose transporters, named GLUT 4. For glucose to reach the cells, the GLUT 4 „taxi“ needs to come to the cell surface to give it a lift. This is initiated by insuline, naturally produced or injected. But also increased muscle contraction and blood circulation emphasize the supply of GLUT 4 at the cell membrane.

As running and strength excercises are important parts of the preparation, you combine two major factors for a healthy lifestyle. Running improves blood circulation, keeps the cholesterol level on target and burns fat cells efficiently. Training muscular strength helps to burn fat and sugar constantly.

So make the best out of it: KEEP TRAINING, HAVE FUN, STAY HEALTHY
