Type O : Exercise Profile


Type O Stress-exercise Profile

The ability to reverse the negative effects of stress lives in your blood type. As we discussed before, stress is not in itself the problem; it is how you respond to stress. Each blood type has a distinct, genetically programmed instinct for overcoming stress.
   All Type Os have the immediate and physical response of their hunter ancestors; stress goes directly to the muscles. The blood type carries a patterned alarm response that permits explosions of intense physical energy.
   When encountering stress, the body takes over. As the adrenal glands pump their chemicals into the blood stream, a Type O becomes tremendously charged up. Given a physical release at this time, any bad stress may be converted into a positive experience.
   Healthy Type Os are meant to release the built-up hormonal forces through vigorous and intense physical exercise. Their systems are literally suited for it. Exercise is particularly critical to the health of Type Os, because the impact of stress is direct and physical. Not only does a regular intense exercise programme elevate spirits, it enables the Type O to maintain weight control, emotional balance and a strong self-image. Type Os respond well to heavy exercise – in nearly every way.
   Type Os who want to lose weight must partake in highly physical exercise. That is because this type of exercise makes the muscle tissue more acidic and produces a higher rate of fat-burning activity. Acidic muscles is in the state of ketosis, which was the key to the success of our Type Os ancestors.
   Type Os who do not express their physical natures with appropriate activity in response to stress, are eventually overwhelmed during the exhaustion stage of the stress response. This exhaustion stage is characterized by a variety of psychological manifestations caused by a slower rate of metabolism, such as depression, fatigue or insomnia. If there is no change, you will leave yourself vulnerable to a number of inflammatory and autoimmune disorders, such as arthritis and asthma, as well as to consistent weight gain and eventual obesity.

The following exercises are recommended for Type Os. Pay special attention to the length of the sessions. To achieve a consistent metabolic effect, you have to get your heart rate up. Mix any of these exercises, but be sure to do one or several of them at least four times a week for the best results.
