“Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.”
~ John F. Kennedy
As with anything, you need your health habits to be well rounded. That means eating right and exercising correctly. Who knew there was a wrong way to exercise?
As much as you might like, you really shouldn't go full force with your cardio exercises and skip the weights. Strength and power training are just as important as endurance. When all are combined, you build and tone more muscle, increase your resting metabolic rate, fight cardiovascular disease, and just generally feel better. Plus, you'll be able to carry more groceries in from the car without being as out of breath. What a deal!
We've put together a couple of simple beginners' weight workout. Please feel free to adjust this to your needs, as no two bodies are the same.
