Axes have been around for a very long time, but we can thank lumberjacks in the 1800s for making axe throwing a competitive sport. Today, axe throwing has become a fun recreational activity for people of all ages, and participants can enjoy a number of health benefits. So, call your closest friends and schedule a night of axe throwing at American Paintball Coliseum to boost confidence, reduce stress, and have fun!
The Science Behind Axe Throwing
It doesn’t take a scientist to realize that axe throwing is a great form of physical exercise. As soon as you heave your first axe, your heart rate will be evidence enough that you’re getting an aerobic workout while you’re having fun. Best of all, you’ll be having such a great time, you won’t even realize how hard your muscles and cardiovascular system are working.
Exercise has been proven time and again to be an essential tool in promoting overall health and well-being. When it comes to mental health, physical exercise reduces levels of stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol, and it releases endorphins, which make you feel more relaxed and at ease. In fact, these “feel good” hormones are known to be natural painkillers and mood enhancers that instantly reduce stress and negative feelings.
Release Anxiety and Promote Overall Health
Picking up, stepping forward, and propelling an axe toward a target takes multiple muscle groups and a great deal of mental focus. Even more, it takes a lot of courage to try a new sport. By working complex muscle groups and focusing on a new task, axe throwing effectively boosts self-esteem and self-confidence while making your body stronger at the same time. With each throw, your body releases negative energy and anxious thoughts at the end of a long, stressful day. There’s nothing better than visualizing yourself throwing your negative thoughts right at the target, and leaving them there to stay when you return home.
