You may be getting enough exercise, but is it the right kind?
According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, a balanced exercise program is essential for long-term health. In addition to regular aerobic activity, you should also include these activities:
Strength training not only develops muscle tone, it also improves bone density and protects the joints. More muscle mass means a better metabolism which is essential for maintaining a healthy weight.
Flexibility and agility exercises improve balance and posture and increase your body’s range of motion — all of which are important for preventing strains, injuries and falls.
Relaxation techniques lower blood pressure and can help improve the immune system. They promote relaxation and lower stress.
