Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a pill you could take to keep your youth throughout the entirety of your life? Imagine being able to eat whatever you want, relaxing 95% of the time, and not having to afford the deteriorating results of this complacent behavior. For those who understand the vitality of activity and being proactive in your health conscious behaviors, this is nothing less than a pipe dream. Who says living a healthy life means living a boring life? 1 in 3 children are physically active every day. Less than 5% of adults in America take part in 30 minutes of physical activity each day. These stats can be shocking considering our bodies were designed to move, build, and grow under stress. A lack of physical activity is a major cause of premature death, premature aging, liver disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, depression, stroke, cognitive dysfunction, arthritis, erectile dysfunction, and many more life threatening diseases.
Given these shocking facts you should ask yourself;
Why should I exercise? And how should I exercise? Hopefully these questions can
draw out a meaningful motivation, and a passionate means to do so. What do you
love to do? Finding activities that you love to do will be the promise of
consistency and longevity in your exercise programs. When you discover how you
will be exercising, it’s important to be aware of the proper way to execute the
movements your body will be making. If your movements are not correct, you can
actually do more damage to your body than healthy growth. A spike in the well
being of your body, brain and spirit will testify to the goodness of a
well-implemented exercise program.
What are the keys to staying young, healthy, strong, and vibrant? Every child, adult, and senior should make these routines and programs an enjoyable part of their life.
1. Stretching Routine
We stretch to become holistically balanced. This means that all our muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, fluids, etc, are doing their job. Training your body to stay balanced and strong starts with a stretching program that aligns your myofascial chains to stay in proper tension. Having the proper tension and compression in your body will result in great posture, awareness of your body, strength, and efficient movements.
2. Strengthening Program
Your body has thousands of components that work together to complete even the smallest tasks. Every day the world puts your body to the ultimate challenge. To become strong, you must make sure that these thousands of components are “doing their job” through a proper exercise program. And you must build strength in the 7 foundation movements. The 7 foundation movements are squatting, lunging, pushing, pulling, bending, twisting, and gate. All the different machines at the gym are slight variations of these movements.
Take some time to research some simple stretching, and strength building exercises. Is there a sport that you’ve always wanted to get involved in? What about local walking clubs or community exercising groups? Be intentional with your physical activity. Do you want to be healthier, stronger, or more vibrant? It will never be easier to start, than starting today.
