Are you healthy? Does your body look the way you want it to look? If you answered ‘no’ to either of those two questions, then let this article be your catalyst to change.
Think of your health and fitness levels as a tripod, with the three legs being exercise, nutrition and rest. When all three legs are strong, so is your health and body. Remove one leg and the entire structure collapses. Let’s take a look at those three legs.
Exercise: To get the most out of an exercise routine, consider the three ‘f’s: fast, fun and effective. If you’re the type that hates to exercise, it’s because the form of exercise that you chose in the past wasn’t fun. I’ll bet it was also long and boring. So pick something that you enjoy doing and that doesn’t require more than 10-20 minutes a day if that. In other words, if you don’t like to run, don’t run. Try dancing, or climbing, or tennis, or any of a hundred other forms of exercise.
For strength training, if you don’t like lifting weights, don’t lift weights. When you lift an external weight, that weight has to be balanced which creates a strain on the spine and the entire nervous system. Who needs that? Try bodyweight exercises. Resistance is resistance and it doesn’t matter whether that resistance is from an external weight or your own body.
