Although we probably all want to keep fit, for most of us we canít do it for one reason or another. It may be that we are just busy, we have health issues, or we are not sure what to do. Yet exercising is so easy to do, so why donít we more of us do it? Probably because that when we think of exercise we imagine a man running at 100mph on a treadmill, dripping sweat, with muscles like the Hulk. However that is far from the truth of the reality. You will find below some very easy to do exercises.
Now you are not going to have to run out and order 100kg weights from the nearest sports store. All you need to start with is a couple of bags of sugar, or tins of rice pudding. While sitting down hold the weights as far out in front of you as you can and count to 10. Then put them straight up above your head and count to 10. Then put your arms out to the side in a cross formation, and again count to 10. Then repeat as many times as you can, but it should hurt your arms as that means it is doing some good. After a few weeks you may feel as though you can step it up with some proper handheld weights.
Amazingly, proof is starting to appear that walking is one of the best exercises anyone can do. We are not talking about strolling around the shops, but walking non-stop for 15 to 30 minutes at a reasonable pace. This will get your heart beat increasing, and a cardio will help keep things like heart disease. It is better if you can include a hill, and you may want to vary it by travelling to other places for a walk. If you have a dog then that is an incentive, if not, ask a neighbor can you take theirs.
If you have stairs at home or work, then use them. Stairs are great at giving a number of muscles in your legs and hips a great workout, and they also force you to pull in your stomach muscles. Do not run up and down stairs, as that is dangerous, but keep going until you are out of breath. If you do that every day them after a few weeks you will notice that you are doing more.
Doing any kind of exercise will certainly help your overall health, and as well as protecting your heart, it can help keep diabetes type 2 at bay, boost your immune system, and improve your memory. After a few weeks you will also fell much healthier, and you will see another side to life. Never overdo it when you are starting out, just do everything slowly so that you learn what you limits are. But once you have been at it for a few weeks things will get a lot easier.
