Maintaining Your Physical Condition

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

Regular workout routines are recommended; they need to be part of the daily program of activities. Begin in a slow pace and doctor check up is necessary, especially for people who have not practiced physical activity for a long time or for those with heart problems.

Regular physical activity during the day causes burning calories and maintaining weight. Minor activities are indicated, like climbing stairs or walking longer distances than usual. Try cycling at least once a week. You can count the number of steps that you take while walking with a device called a pedometer, which you can buy at sporting goods stores.

Exercises in a structured manner can be made in a fitness club. Choose an activity that is pleasant and it is recommended that these activities vary so that boredom does not appear (aerobics 3 times a week, a walk with a friend, or lifting weights in successive days, is an example program varied). Sports like volleyball, basketball, swimming, cycling are indicates. Also some awesome workout music does a very good job at driving away boredom.


The overall benefit of physical activity is to improve health condition in general and the possibility of certain activities for a longer period of time (playing with children, dancing, walking).

Experts have demonstrated on several occasions that fitness is a measure of health. A survey conducted on 25000 volunteers has shown that physical activity is more important than weight. People who were overweight but had a good physical condition had a lower risk of mortality than people of normal weight but sedentary.

Physical condition improves health status and reduces the risk of disease.

The benefits of exercises for flexibility

As flexibility is better developed, you could perform tasks that were harder to make before weight loss (from taking a book from a higher shelf, to tying your shoes). It also improves balance.

The more you move the better you will feel and the more mobile your body will become. If it has been awhile since you have done any meaningful exercise it may take some time before you experience the benefits, but you body will eventually adapt to the increased workout regimen.
