  2. 2. Choose From Different Styles Of Exercise RoutinesA regular workout routine is a fantastic way to get into shape. However, when I say“regular routine” that doesn’t mean doing the same thing day in and day out is your bestbet. It’s important to change up your routine to “shock” your muscles and to keep theworkout interesting for yourself. A stale workout routine could get you in a slump andyou may get bored of working out altogether.Weight training is a great way to add mass and strength; however you may have nointerest in that. If that sounds like you then you may need to look again and weightlifting. You don’t need to load up on heavy weights and over strain your self to get thebest out of this type of workout. A nice change from your everyday cardio routine couldbe to go for a quick jog to get your heart rate up, then do some light weights whilemaintaining a decent heart rate which will encourage continuous weight loss.Even if you just want to bulk up and lift weights, throwing a bit of cardio into your routinecan help with your heart strength and lung capacity. If you’re already an avid aerobicexerciser, don’t think you can’t mix it up by changing your routine a little. If you mainlygo just for jogs, try taking a few cardio dance classes and burn calories to a beat. Or ifyou stick to cycling you could try doing a few laps and see if you can’t just hit a fewmore muscle groups.Circuit training or boot camp types of exercise could also be a fun way to liven up yourworkout. These types of exercise already incorporate variety into their routine. A bootcamp style workout may consist of a lot of different calisthenics such as jumping jacks,push-ups, pull-ups, or sit-ups. Circuit training could be a series of weight and cardiostations that alternate between aerobic and anaerobic exercise.Stretching is something that should be incorporated into any exercise routine whetheryou’re looking for variety or not. You may decide to use a stretching routine as the mainbody of your workout with any of the many forms of yoga, or you can use it just for yourwarm up and cool down periods, but this is one thing that should definitely not beoverlooked.When adjusting your workouts don’t forget you need to progress your difficulty level andincrease your intensity. Variation will keep your workout fresh and fun and your body willrespond positively to the change in your routine. Page | 2

  4. 4. over that initial hurdle to a place where exercise becomes purely pleasurable. Givephysical fitness a chance and you will be opening a door to an invaluable experience. Benefits of Getting at Least 30 Minutes Daily Activity and MovementYou may think getting only 30 minutes of physical activity a day can’t benefit you so whybother, right? Wrong!

  5. 5. MobilityThere are three aspects to a good fitness routine: cardio, weight training, and flexibility.Incorporating all three of these into your lifestyle will undoubtedly improve how you feelwhile walking around, doing household chores, or playing with your kids. If you feel thatbeing able to walk up a few flights of stairs with ease is something worth 30 minutes ofyour day then figure out the right exercise plan for yourself and give it a try. There’s nohandbook to physical fitness, so if you aren’t enjoying a particular activity try somethingelse. All you need to do if move your body a little bit every day and you’ll learn whatworks for you and what doesn’t. Exercise And Pain ManagementExercise can be an excellent form of pain management. A properly designed workoutroutine can loosen and strengthen muscles and alleviate pressure in your joints. Ifyou’re suffering from chronic pain and thinking about beginning a new exercise routineyou may want to consult your family doctor or a physiotherapist because while the rightexercises could decrease your pain, the wrong exercises may lead to further injury.When you begin working out for the first time it’s normal to experience muscle pain andfatigue in your body. Your muscles have to break and rebuild in order to get strongerand this is something you’re going to feel, even more so the harder you work out. Don’tbe discouraged by the soreness you experience because that just means you’re on theright path to feeling stronger and more flexible.Back pain can be a real killer for a lot of people. When you’re already in pain the lastthing you want to do is put yourself in more pain by getting up and trying to move aninflamed and irritated part of you body. That’s understandable, but the only way to reallycure your back pain is to strengthen the muscles around the weakened ones so youhave maximum support. Simple stretches may be all it takes to get your back in theshape it needs to be to prevent chronic pain or future injuries. However, don’t forget theimportance of starting out slow and steady as it will prevent further injury to sensitiveareas of your body.Not unlike back pain, injuries that are causing you constant pain may be helped withproper exercise. The stronger the rest of your body is the better equipped it will be tosupport the weaker areas. A knee injury that’s never properly healed or an ankle that’sprone to spraining can be remedied with strong support muscles that pick up the slackof the weaker muscles. Page | 5
  6. 6. While taking it easy may seem like the right thing to do when you’re sore or injured, awell designed workout routine may actually get you back on your feet quicker. It’simportant to be careful and go slow however, so check with your medical professionalsif you feel something may put you at risk for further injury. Breathing Techniques For Healthier ExerciseAre you using proper breathing techniques while exercising? It may be somethingyou’ve never even thought about, but it can be a pivotal point in a successful workout.Whether you’re lifting weights (anaerobic) or going for a run (aerobic) your breathing isimportant in many ways. Even during your warm up stretch, paying attention to yourbreathing patterns can give you a better workout.EnduranceControlled breathing will go a long way to maintaining a steady workout. During a cardioworkout, you’ll have to keep your breathing level heavier than average but you don’twant to be outright panting. If you can talk but your breathing is still laboured you’reprobably in the right breathing range. Your breathing is an indication of your heart rate,and with a cardio workout, your heart rate is determining the intensity level of youractivity.Breathing may seem less important while lifting weights but that is most certainly not thecase. Do not hold your breath while strength training! Your muscles need that oxygenyou’re breathing in and you’ll be able to last a lot longer if you keep your breathingsteady.Blood FlowHolding your breath in a workout or not breathing evenly can affect your blood pressure.The physical activity you’re doing has already elevated your heart rate, but addinguneven breathing can increase this and that can be dangerous if your blood pressure isalready high. You’re working out to be healthier so doing something that could endangeryou is only counter-productive.Maintaining StressNot only will proper breathing techniques prolong your workout and keep your heartbeating at a safe pace, it can also just relax you and make your workout more Page | 6
  7. 7. enjoyable. While doing your warm up and cool down stretches, take the time to breatheslowly and deliberately. This will focus you and let you really feel the progress your bodyhas made. Controlled breathing will lower your heart rate after an intense workout andwill replenish your muscles with the much needed oxygen they have used up.Your body is a fine tuned machine and even though breathing may seem like a trivialthing it should not be overlooked. Proper breathing will give you a more effective andenjoyable workout so whether your riding a bike, doing bench presses, or holding adifficult yoga pose, just breathe! Getting Started: The Physical Fitness FundamentalsPhysical fitness does not have to be something you dread.

It can lead to loss of your job, business or fail youexams. May be you are hearing of this term procrastinating for the first time. Well, bydefinition; procrastinating is the process postponing doing what you are required to dodue to insensible reasons; for instance, laziness or carelessness. When addicted toprocrastinating, you keep on postponing activities carelessly.I know believe that you have a general picture of what procrastinating is and you can tellif you are a victim or not. Going back to our main topic which is: how can I tell if I amprocrastinating? Basically, it is very simple. A procrastinator is a person who keeps onpostponing what he/she is required to undertake for other unrelated activities or due tolaziness.Causes of procrastinatingSome postponements are necessary while others are not. For example, if you delay toundertake a task because you are waiting for clarification from your seniors, then that isa justified delay. However, if you delay because of chatting on a social media network,then that is an unnecessary delay. Therefore, let’s look at some of the causes ofprocrastination: 1. Complex tasks: if the tasks you are performing are very sophisticated, you can easily lose interest 2. Inability to make decisions: some decisions are very sensitive and can only be made by specific people in the organizations. If such situations are encountered, you will definitely delay the job until the decisions are made 3. Unpleasant tasks: if the tasks you are performing are unpleasant at all, then your interest to work can be easily diverted Page | 14
  15. 15. 4. Lack of interest: if you are doing what you aren’t interested in, you can easily lose interest 5. Unimportant tasks: if you are performing unimportant tasks, you will definitely procrastinate. 6. Working environment: your working environment can either fasten or delay the work. 7. Negative attitude towards the boss: research has shown that if you have a negative attitude towards the person who gave you the task, there is a possibility of delays. 8. Disturbances: if there are a lot of disturbances where you are working from, the work can be delayed 9. Perfection: some people delay tasks in an attempt to make the work perfectFacts about procrastinating 1. Procrastinators always tell themselves that they will perform better the next day; which rarely happens 2. The style of parenting can cause procrastinating 3. Procrastinating is not inherited but developed by the individual 4. Most procrastinators are termed as lazy and not incompetentHow to stop procrastinating  You should always work even if you are not feeling like working  Ensure that all the required items are available to ensure completion of tasksHow to know if you are procrastinating  Substituting something important for something very unimportant  Turning a short break to a long one  Spending too much time on one task  Not seeing the impact of your work  Under-estimating or over-estimating the degree of work’s difficulty Page | 15
  16. 16. The Truth About Weight LossBasically, losing weight is about burning more calories than you take in. It is very easyto lose weight but if not taken care of very carefully, the effects of over-weight are harsh.Many people become obese not because they cannot handle it but because they fail toinstill very simple steps that can eliminate the problem completely. Obesity will bar youfrom performing many activities and remain limited on what they do. This is because thebody becomes too heavy, imbalanced, unstable and inflexible.Today, let’s share on some of the ways we can use to lose weight  Diet: maintain a healthy eating habit. It is recommended that you eat six small meals a day distributed regularly throughout the day. You should have your last large meal about three hours before going to sleep. Eating more raw fruits and vegetables will also facilitate faster burning of excess calories.Some people say that you need to avoid eating snacks, this is not true. Instead, thesnacks need to be eaten at the right time and alongside a workout program. Therefore,you should not specialize and go fasting in the name of losing weight; you can stillmaintain your previous snacks but also stick to your doctor’s diet program.  Drink a lot of water daily: the water mostly dehydrates the body; which is a crucial process in losing weight. Start taking water as soon as you wake up and maintain the trend throughout the day. Page | 16
  17. 17.  Juicing: if you walk into homes of those people who are serious about their health, they never miss juicers. Juicing is one of the best ways that health experts have said to be effective in losing weight. What you need to know is the combination of the produce and the selection of the juicer to use to extract the juice.  Exercise: you can maintain a healthy diet but without incorporating a workout, the results might not be very satisfactory. Initiate exercises that will involve all body parts and muscles. The exercises make the body active and increase the rate of metabolism thus burning more calories.  Supplements and pills: there are supplements available in the markets which can effectively burn calories. Most supplements are incorporated in the diet and they facilitate the weight lose process. However, you should visit a doctor for recommendation on what type of supplements to use because some have very severe side effects which can worsen the situation.  Calculate your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR): this equation helps you to know the number of calories you need per day to maintain your weight, the number of calories you take daily, the number of calories you burn ad the number of calories you need to burn. This equation will help you strategize on how to approach the obesity situation.ConclusionBasically, maintaining a healthy diet and incorporating body exercises consistently is thebest, natural way of losing weight and this has worked out for many people. Therefore, itis time for you to put the above steps in action to burn those excess calories. Page | 17
