You must have already read hundreds of articles related to exercise and its health benefits. If nothing seems to be made an impact yet on your health and fitness you should read this!
My grandmother, in her late 60s used to get two cans of vegetables from her pantry and do curls, squats, lateral pull ups and triceps in the kitchen. If she could lift two cans, so can you! Let’s just do it!
I’m not suggesting you run out for a marathon today; instead try small steps to begin with, maybe only a few minutes a day; the important thing is to do something you enjoy every day or it won’t stick. Experiment with different exercises to see what you like to do; running, swimming, biking, or even jumping on a trampoline!
Here are 3 easy steps you can take today to shake the lethargy and get started:
- Go for a walk, even if it is only for 10 minutes, getting started is the key.
- Join a nearby gym or YMCA and sign up for one class (add more as you become motivated)
- Buy a workout tape if the gym is not your thing or you have no time to visit a gym.
However, over exercising can have the opposite effect and force your body to hold onto extra weight. It sounds weird, but it’s true. Remember, your body needs extra fat as fuel. If you exercise too much it is just like going out and buying things you can’t afford. It’s just not in the budget.
Here are two rules for healthy fitness and weight control:
- Strength training two to three times a week.
- Get your heart rate up for at least twenty minutes, three to four times per week.
It is highly recommended to find yourself a personal trainer. Try working with a personal trainer to find out whether or not you are training in a fat burning zone.
