WELLNESS: EXERCISE

 

Moderate exercise makes a significant contribution to both wellness and antiaging.

Exercise is critical to both overall wellness and contributes to longevity. It maintains a healthy cardiovascular and pulmonary functioning, activates the metabolism, keeps joints lubricated, retains muscle strength and keeps tendons supple.

 

Fitness Program Planning

Before you start exercising consider the following:

Your Body Type - be realistic about how your body will shape up

Your Exercise Personality - chosing the wrong type of exercise is the quickest way to giving up your fitness program

Your Fitness Goals - make sure these are appropriate for your age, health and weight. Exercising too hard and fast for your body can cause serious damage.

Exercise Programs

One of the most important aspects of exercise, especially in later years, is to ensure that the exercise is "appropriate". Over-exertion can lead to serious damage to muscles, tendons and joints, and also risk cardiac stress.

The key to a balanced exercise program is to contribute to each of the areas above. This is done by using a combination of the three main types of exercise:

Aerobic exercise – for Cardiovascular, Pulmonary and metabolism

Anerobic – Endurance and Resistance Training – for muscles, ligaments, and bones

Core Stability - strengthen the abdomen

Weight Training - to maintain muscle mass and assist in weight loss

Compound Exercises - for a total workout

Guidelines on exercise programs

Stretching – for tendons and joint flexibility

Workout Cooldown - for a deep relaxation mind workout
