STAYING SLIM CAN BE AN ARDUOUS TASK WITH MODERN LIFESTYLE PATTERNS.
HERE’S HOW YOU CAN STAY SVELTE AND HEALTHY AT THE SAME TIME – Taken from Mumbai Mirror 15 June 2017
STRETCH IT OUT
Working on flexibility and stretching is imperative. There are various flexibility tests to assess if you are at risk of high blood pressure or suffer from poor heart health. Fitness experts suggest active isolated stretches wherein you hold every stretch for two seconds, to improve circulation and elasticity.
A HEALTHY HEART
If you are new to exercise, do not go overboard with your workout routine. When embarking on a fitness routine, it’s advisable not to start with long hours of cardio exercises that require extreme endurance training.
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is as much for those over 40 years of age, as for the younger age group. Doing extreme intensity workouts for shorter durations, three to four times a week, is better than long hours of workouts. HIIT also enables production of the human growth hormone, preventing muscle loss.
Exercises that engage your core body parts work on your inner muscles and have greater benefits than other kinds of exercises.
According to experts, start your fitness journey in the most gradual manner. A combination of stretching exercises, strength training to increase your core strength and cardio exercises are perfect to stay healthy.
