Violent exercises -those that demand considerable & repeated efforts of the muscular system; Moderate- do not demand much work; and Gentle - minimum muscular exertion
Exercise is important as a regulator for nutrition. Exercise increases the muscles in size, changes their structure, reduces fat in their fibers & increases the density of the muscular fibers.
