The elements of a good exercise program

The goal of every training program should be to develop great health, fitness, strength and muscle. This adds years to your life while making it easier to enjoy the activities of daily life. There are types of training that contribute to different areas of fitness more than others.

Aerobic training is the most popular type of training for getting in shape. Look at the high numbers of people jogging, running and swimming. This type of training aids greatly with fat loss and toning of your muscles.

There are two major sub-types of aerobic training. Low intensity, which is best exemplified by jogging or brisk walking and HIIT, or high intensity, which follows an intense, 100% effort with either a complete rest or a low intensity “rest” period, where a slow paced aerobic exercise is performed for one minute before returning to the next all-out effort.

Strengthtraining is an essential component of a successful training regimen. It helps by increasing lean muscle mass, strengthening tendons and connective tissue and thickens bones due to the weight-bearing effect.  For the general public it is best to begin with a basic program to work all of the major muscle groups. Arm muscles usually get enough stimulation from chest and back training, so unless you’re bodybuilding, direct arm training can be infrequent.

Weight training is great at counteracting muscle loss that naturally occurs as we age and staving off other serious health issues.

Stretching is important to help keep your muscles limber and injury-free. By keeping your body supple you avoid muscle pulls and sprains.  It’s important not to force your stretches or you will likely injure yourself, so be careful. Stretch your back and hamstrings by keeping your legs straight and bending forward and down as far as you can. Stretch your thighs by doing splits and your chest by holding onto a pole and leaning away in the opposite direction as far as you can.

Balance training is a great way to increase your stability, which helps prevent falls and other accidents and builds body awareness. To do this, stand on one leg while holding the other leg up. As you progress, begin extending the leg you’re holding up out in front of you as high as you can. Next, hold it out to the side and finally out behind you.

To make this more challenging, hold your arms out to the side parallel to the floor as you do this exercise. Get creative and you will enjoy your exercise sessions more than ever, which can only benefit you.
