Workout Can Be Done at Home

Fitness is a step-by-step progression. If you’re already fairly active, or you’ve recently succeeded in adding more physical activity to your lifestyle, the next step to getting fit is simple. Whatever you’re doing now, do more.

This is where aerobic exercise comes in. But don’t worry. You still don’t have to join a health club or take an aerobics class, unless you want to. The great thing about aerobic exercise is that there are so many different activities to choose from, dancing, biking, swimming, playing tennis. The list goes on and on.

No matter which activities you choose, you’ll get the most out of your workout if you follow these practical pointers.

Put on your dancing shoes.

If you’re dancing, that is. And running shoes if you’re running, walking shoes if you’re walking. You get the idea. Wearing the right shoes for your activity can protect you by cushioning and stabilizing your feet and basically serving as mini-shock-absorbers.

Seek out support.

When you workout, make sure that you wear an appropriate sports bra that holds your breasts close to your body. Otherwise, all the movement that’s involved in aerobic exercise can start your breast sagging southward.

Warm up.

Your car isn’t the only thing that needs to be warmed up before all its parts are lubricated and ready to roll, you have your own engine and parts that need to run a few minutes before shifting to a high gear. Basically, a good warm up gets your blood pumping, limbers up your ligaments and tendons, and loosens your muscles so that you reduce the risk of injury.

Drink up.

When you exercise, you sweat out more fluids than you would just sitting on the couch. And since your muscles are about 70% water, you need to replenish those fluids so that you don’t start to feel weak before your workout’s over.
