Be Sure To Find Time For Physical Activities Every Day
Article mentions the importance of fitting in some form of physical activity into each day such as walking or weight training for good health.
Engaging in some kind of physical activity - be it aerobic exercise classes, weight training, brisk walking, jogging, and even low-intensity (moderate) forms of physical activity each day (i.e. climbing stairs, parking the car farther away and walking farther to your destination) - go a long way in promoting health. If you are sedentary and want to get into shape, fitness experts generally recommend first getting your physician's OK, then starting off with the easiest form of exercise, a walking program. It doesn't have to be a long walk. Gradually increase your walking distance each day. Maybe a 10 minute walk around the campus, then 15 the next day, etc., until you can comfortably do 20 to 30 minute walks each day (it can be broken up into 15 minutes early in the day, and 15 minutes at the end of the day - you can get the same health benefits as a straight 30 minute walk!
Also, go to the library or the local book store for books on exercise programs including walking and weight training for example to get further information to help you along your road to fitness. The November and December issue of AARP magazine cites Sandra Selikson, M.D., assistant professor of medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine's Montefiore Medical Center in New York City: "You don't have to do a marathon; you just need to try to incorporate good daily activity into your life." In addition, follow these general fitness guidelines:
Weight training is terrific for building muscle and bone density, but also include some type of aerobic training to build not only a strong heart, but also a powerful brain. Studies show how aerobic exercise promotes not only healthier hearts, but improves brainpower, too.
If you are involved in an exercise program that has become stale, USA Weekend magazine fitness columnist and author Jorge Cruise provides this varied workout schedule: Monday, do 30-minute treadmill intervals; Tuesday, strength training; Wednesday, 30 minutes on the elliptical trainer; Thursday, take a Yoga class; Friday, 40 minutes of biking; Saturday, circuit-training; and Sunday, rest. And, before sports or exercise, Cruise recommends doing a warm up to prevent injury such as jogging in place for several minutes and finishing your workouts with stretching to enhance flexibility.
Which exercise trains your abdomen more effectively - situps or crunches? According to fitness consultant Paul Becker, crunches directly strengthen and tone the abdominal muscles while situps primarily work the psoas muscles. However, besides doing crunches, you also need to reduce calories to help shed abdominal fat.
To avoid back pain, the American Council on Exercise advises lifting heavy objects with your legs, not your back; strengthening abdominal and back muscles; maintaining a healthy weight; improving flexibility with regular stretching; and developing strong lower body muscles with specific weight training exercises.
Attention MSU students: With the school year in full swing, here are some helpful ways to prepare for tests and reduce stress: 1. Eat and sleep healthfully. 2. Do some exercise that you enjoy. 3. View life as challenges, not things to be fearful of or avoid, and 4. Learn and practice relaxation or meditation skills.
Finally, perhaps the best way to keep your body running smoothly during the ups and downs of the school year is by drinking more water, according to Los Angeles-based physician and author Dr. Edward L. Schneider, who says that water plumps up your skin so wrinkles aren't as noticeable, helps you feel full so you're less likely to overeat, and that water prevents constipation. Water also gives you much needed energy to carry you throughout each day, so get to the water fountain or keep that water bottle handy!
