You probably have heard that physical exercise is good for your body and yes, that’s absolutely right! But the choice of the exercise routine is always a hard one. Some instructors will suggest brisk walking or jogging others will suggest weight lifting. But rarely do we ask our instructors on how we end up with a particular exercise routine.

For whichever exercise routine that works will depend on, the goals you intend to achieve, your fitness level, the frequency and length of your workouts. After the initial start, monitor and assess the progress of your routine for the best of results.

The type of exercises that are suitable for a person depend on a variety of factors such as their age, fitness level, health status and personal preferences. However, here are a few general recommendations:

  1. Strength training: These exercises can help to build muscle and improve bone density. Examples include weight lifting, resistance band training and bodyweight exercises like push-ups, squats and lunges.
  2. Flexibility exercises: These exercises can help to improve your range of motion and prevent injury. Examples include yoga, stretching and Pilates.
  3. Cardiovascular exercises: These exercises help to improve the health of your heart and lungs. Examples include walking, running, cycling, swimming and dancing.
  4. Balance exercises: These exercises can help to improve your balance and reduce the risk of falls, especially in older adults. Examples include standing on one foot, heel-to-toe, walking and tai-chi.

It is important to consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new exercise program, especially if you have any medical conditions or concerns. Additionally, it is important to start slowly and gradually increase the intensity and duration of your workouts to avoid injury.
