Staying regular requires you to stay fit. Regular exercise helps to address constipation by shortening the time it takes food in your body to move through the large intestine. Which in turn limits the amount of water absorbed from the stool into your body. Typically hard, dry stools are harder to pass. Aerobic exercise accelerates your breathing and heart rate which helps to stimulate the natural contraction of intestinal muscles. Intestinal muscles that contract efficiently help move stools out quickly.
You’ll want to wait at least an hour after a big meal before engaging in any rigorous physical activity such as running, swimming, soccer and the like. After you eat, blood flow increases to the stomach and intestines to help the body digest the food. However, if you exercise right after eating, the blood flows toward the heart and muscles instead.
