It’s true, it’s never easy or even much fun to maintain your fitness. That doesn’t diminish the fact that staying fit is an important part of staying healthy. Luckily, drastic steps are unnecessary. Taking some time and some effort is all that you need to worry about. You might even find that you enjoy it.
Many people work toward their fitness goals by going to the gym to lift weights. Basically, you need six easy exercises in order to stay fit, they are push ups, pull ups, bridges, leg raises, squats, and handstand push-ups.
An excellent exercise for getting yourself in better shape is walking. Walk heel to toe by pushing off with your heel first and your toes last, to increase the effort being put out by your calves. You can also incorporate your arms so that you are working your whole body, burning even more calories with each step.
Doing some simple push-ups can help you get your triceps in shape. However, rather than doing normal push-ups, your triceps can be targeted by turning in the hands until the fingertips face each other, which is around 45 degrees. By doing this, you can tone up the muscles you normally don’t work.
You need not worry if this is the case. Biking is a great low impact alternative to running. Riding your bike to work each morning will not only save you money on gas, but it is a great way to get in a workout every day. If your commute is about 5 miles, biking should get you there within 30 minutes. Biking to work and back home is a great way to get the exercise that you need.
No one said fitness was always easy or fun, but if you approach it the right way, it can feel more of both. Fortunately, you do not have to feel alone, as there is a wealth of information available. The next step is to decide you are going to get started with your fitness program!
