Last month, we covered some general guidelines for diet and exercise. Let’s discuss how to develop a personalized exercise plan. Here are the building blocks that should apply to most people:
- Aerobic exercise
- Resistance training
Whether a novice or a seasoned fitness guru, the following principles apply to all:
- Safety first – Make sure your program matches your abilities. Don’t hesitate to obtain advice from a physician or a fitness expert.
- Cosistency – Aim for exercising daily. We are designed to move throughout the day – everyday. By varying the type and amount, daily exercise is easier to achieve than you might think.
- Quality over quantity – Whether running or lifting weights, good form will always yield better results.
- Hydrate – Drink a lot of fluids all day long, but especially during exercise and the hours leading up to your routine.
