Who knew the much beloved fountain of youth actually is nothing more than standing in a pool of your own sweat?
That exaggeration might not be quite the stretch you think once you feast your eyes on just how well the aging process can be if you've been incorporating exercise as part of your regimen.

More often than not, however, anti aging as it relates to exercise is associated primarily with cardiovascular exercising, like your resident treadmill or elliptical machine.
