Time Stamps

0:00 Skeletal muscle is an endocrine organ.

0:10 Movement stimulates your skeletal muscle organ to release endocrine-like hormones and myokines (aka exerkines) that have systemic effects upon the brain, heart, liver, bone, mood, and more.

1:10 Movement/exercise can have anti-cancer properties.

1:50 Increases in exerkines influence microRNA increases.

2:40 Skeletal muscle is the largest organ of your body by weight.

4:55 Volume and intensity of exercise determines the duration and quantity of release of exerkines.

5:15 Start: Do 3 to 5 exercises for 3 to 5 reps, 3 to 5 sets, 3 to 5 days per week. Do the things you like.

6:00 Exerkines have paracrine and autocrine effects that effect muscle, the entire endocrine system, fat cells, immune system, bone, and brain.

7:30 Habitual exercise can induce sustained elevated increase in exerkines and the associations with disease reduction.

10:15 After exercise, there is a transient increase in proinflammatory interleukins, and a post exercise increase from skeletal muscle with systemic anti-inflammatory properties.

12:10 The anti-cancer effects of exercise go beyond the reduction in bodyfat.

13:30 Exerkine milieu lasts for several hours after exercise cessation.  

14:05 Exercise can prevent or delay the onset of neural degenerative conditions.

15:30 Adipose tissue can release exerkines.

16:10 Your liver is a major source of many acute and chronic exercise-responsive cytokines.

17:10 Exercise affects your gut microbiome.
