New fitness guidelines

Post by PearsonCharles on Thu Jun 27, 2013 11:19 pm

The government endorses tree-climbing for kids. Kids and teens are encouraged to get an hour of physical activity every day, including bone- and muscle-building exercise at least three times a week.

If you don't have a lot of time, you can work harder for shorter periods. Moderate exercise includes things like brisk walking, doubles tennis, and biking slower than 10 mph

If you're older, watch your balance. Older adults are advised to get the same 150 minutes plus strength training as everyone else, health and chronic conditions permitting.

Pregnant women can follow Paula Radcliffe's example. The 2007 women's New York City Marathon champ (and world-record holder) trained until the day before she went into labor with her daughter and started up again two weeks after the birth.

Some people may benefit from even more exercise. Type 2 diabetics reap a lot of heart benefits from that 150-minute prescription, but they get even more if they move closer to 300 minutes a week.

If you have special concerns, talk to your doc, but don't expect a free pass. Very few people have a valid excuse for not exercising. Indeed, the government says cancer survivors, people with arthritis, stroke victims, those with Parkinson's disease, and the mentally ill, among others, all benefit from exercise

It's good for your brain, too. The government says there's strong evidence that in addition to the laundry list of other health benefits exercise provides (including a lower risk of cancer, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and breast and colon cancers), it's helpful in ameliorating depression and cognitive function.

This is a good general outline. Also, I couldn't agree more with the mental health benefits of exercise. I know I see a clear difference in my mental state/personality on the days when I skip a workout. Exercising helps me to have a more easygoing outlook and to focus better.

Fitness enthusiasts worldwide are sold on pilates and yoga and the freedom of having a fit physique that is able with all the backbone and backbone they need, and more! Self care is vital, because optimal health allows us to added decidedly account others. Although the aberration between, for instance, pilates classes and hot yoga is obvious, this combination of exercises provides a good pair.
