Exercise is more than just a healthy habit; it’s a way to stay in shape, boost energy levels and even add years to your life. But, it’s also easy to lose momentum when it comes to fitness, especially if you don’t enjoy your workout or find the right mix of physical activity for you.
If you want to get into an exercise routine, try different sports and activities until you find the one that inspires you and makes you feel good. Varying your workouts is important, too — this way you can work out different muscle groups and prevent boredom or injury from overuse. If you’re just starting out, consider getting a personal trainer or joining an exercise class to help you learn proper technique and form.
The best part about regular exercise is that it’s for everyone, from 8 to 80 years old. In fact, researchers say that as we age, even modest amounts of exercise can improve lung and heart health, blood pressure, cholesterol, the strength of muscles and bones, flexibility and mood.
The recommended amount of aerobic exercise is 150 minutes a week. Aerobic exercise can include anything from low-impact activities like walking, swimming or cycling to higher intensity workouts like jogging or running. It’s also a good idea to incorporate muscle-strengthening exercises into your weekly regimen. The recommended amount of these exercises is two or more days a week of activities that work all major muscle groups. Träning
