Simple Exercises For Great Health, Fitness And Fun!

By Sean Christopher Lovejoy for exercise-and-health.com

Simple exercises can be fun and enjoyable too. It doesn’t have to be hard and strenuous. Great examples are walking, dancing, swimming and bicycling, all fun activities to do. Thirty minutes per day of exercising, three days per week can help you feel good and enjoy the health and fitness benefits that come with regular exercise.

When exercising, it is important to pace yourself so that you do not tire quickly. Use your target heart rate to pace yourself. For the first few weeks (or months), start with your lower heart rate target zone and slowly increase towards your higher heart rate target zone, as you feel comfortable. It is a great way to monitor your progress.

The toughest stumbling block to exercising is getting started. And once you’ve started, it is also sometimes hard to stick with it. When you start your exercise program, you have to make a commitment to yourself to be more physically active on a regular basis.

A change in lifestyle from sedentary to physically active can be hard to do, but with enough dedication, it can be done, especially when you realize the major health and fitness benefits of exercising.

To increase your chances of success, make sure you choose an exercise that you will enjoy the most. There are the low impact aerobics to improve overall health, cardiovascular workouts for strengthening the heart muscles, and weights training for developing your muscles and increasing your strength, just to name a few. Do not forget to add flexibility and stretching exercise routines that are necessary to keep your body flexible and well conditioned.

Whatever type of exercise you choose, make sure you do warm-ups before you start and cool-downs at the end to prevent unnecessary muscle injuries.

And most importantly, discuss your exercise program with your doctor before starting.
