Info on daily exercise recommendations:
Everybody should know by now that regular exercise is good for you. It helps with reducing stress, promoting sleep, strengthening bones and muscles and, of course help weight loss.
Becoming overweight will happen if calorie intake exceeds what is needed to run the body. All that needs to happen, in many cases, to reverse this process is a reduction in the amount of calorific food intake combined with a general increase in the amount of work done by the body. But what you need to know what the daily exercise recommendations.
But the word daily exercise recommendations often comes with connotations of grueling gym sessions, tortuous hill runs or high-octane aerobics workouts. For those who have the energy and motivation to dedicate themselves to these kinds of activities then great, but it is a myth to think that all exercise needs to be that way; in fact, doing something more easy-going and comfortable is going to be a lot more effective in the long run than getting burnt out after two or three demanding fitness classes.
So what kind of daily exercise recommendations am I talking about?
Walking is one of the daily exercise recommendations due to the number of advantages: it’s free, there is no cost and you can do it anywhere. One of the easiest ways to start incorporating exercise is to quit making excuses for not walking to places. It may or may not be possible to walk to the nearest shop but it certainly is possible to walk upstairs to fetch some laundry rather than shouting at your partner to get it. Daily exercise recommendations can be using any one a dozen exercises as long as you do something and do it regularly.
2. Exercise balls
There are many simple exercises that can be done with exercise balls, many of which can support a surprisingly large amount of weight. Just by sitting in front of the TV on a ball, you are using muscles in a static contraction just by keeping yourself upright and balanced on the ball your burning calories! Exercise balls are used by some in the office for various OH&S concerns.
Swimming may not be some people’s idea of fun exercise but for those who enjoy it, going to the pool is ideal for working all the major muscles of the body, giving the body a nice, gentle workout.
I am not suggesting to just go to the pool to float around, join a aqua aerobics class using the resistance of the water you will get a good workout. You don’t need to worry about your body in the water it is as light as a feather.
Today’s sportsmen use the water as an alternative to other workouts they do. Even if you did not want to do aqua classes water running is excellent and you can sometimes wear a water vest to go to the deeper end of the pool and do water running.
There is no pressure on the joints doing this type of workout as the water supports the body.
4. Beginner’s Yoga
For those who like the idea of exercising with others, then enrolling in a yoga class might be suitable. There are different styles of yoga, and those looking to lose weight need to look for a type known as ‘Vinyasa’ yoga, as this focuses on movement rather than static poses. It is important to attend a taster class, or at least talk to the teacher, first, especially if you have to pay for multiple sessions up front. Some classes may be more vigorous than others and it is important to find one that is comfortable.
Keep a record
Building simple, low-impact exercise into your daily routine is an ideal way to kick-start weight loss. To keep motivated it is useful to keep an exercise diary/log and record activities, durations and estimated calorie use; you will only need to buy a cheap note book to record the duration and the type of exercises you do.
The daily exercise recommendations is 30-40 minutes 3-4 times a day. The key to exercising regularly is to find something that you like to do. Work out with a friend then you will encourage each other. Remember to mix the exercises up and to also include weight training.
You will feel more energetic, your skin will glow (drink lots of water when exercising especially when working out in the pool) your muscle tone will be better and you will lose weight! Isn’t this enough reason to start exercising today?
Daily exercise recommendations are there to encourage you to exercise for the minimum amount of exercise you need to do daily to gain benefit.
