For strength training or resistance exercises, fill up your water bottle with water or sand and do some bicep or tricep curls while watching television. Or, you can sit down and clamp a pillow between your ankles, lifting it up and down. This exercise is good for abdominal training.

To stretch your muscles, lie down in front of television, if you cannot miss the program you watch, with one leg straight and the other leg bent. Draw the knee of the bent leg close to your chest with the help of a towel

Physical Activity and Cholesterol Level

So what is physical activity? It is defined as participation in any form of regular exercise or sports for at least 30 minutes per day on most days of the week. It is broadly agreed that regular exercise reduces the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and may slow the progression of established coronary artery disease. Regular and vigorous exercise can increase the metabolic demand of the body. This causes favorable alterations in the levels of LDL (low-density lipoproteins) cholesterol, HDL (high-density lipoproteins) cholesterol, and triglycerides. As such, exercise is always recommended to people with hypercholesterolemia, other lipid abnormalities, and in cardiovascular rehabilitation.

Study showed that exercise ability could be a more powerful predictor of mortality among men than other established risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Men with higher exercise ability during treadmill exercise testing confer more favorable improvement in survival rate. Other studies also reported that less fit or less active people could improve their survival rate if they could increase their level of fitness or physical activity. As such, physical activity can be considered as an integral part of a healthy lifestyle to reduce cardiovascular mortality and morbidity.

Tips to Improve Your Health

It is very important for a person to assess his or her physical health. You can see the external problems but you should also know your body from within. If you have some external problem you always go to the doctor to have it checked. But at times when you do not feel good from within and find no symptoms of ill health you do not make an effort to go for a check up. It is here when we create problems for us.

Whenever you feel weak or low visit your doctor. You could be facing some health problems which could be tackled easily rather than delaying and making it worse. Your body starts showing symptoms if it is unwell. The symptom could be physical as well as emotional. Never ignore the symptoms your body gives such as falling of the hair, often feeling weak and lethargic and getting irritated fast. These could be indications of serious problems.

Give time to yourself and improve healthcare. There are different ways of improving your health and it only requires a little of your time. You have to learn to be cautious towards your health.

How to

Effective Thigh Exercises

Here’s an example of one of the most effective thigh exercises that you can do. I’m sure you have done some variation of lunges before. There’s probably about 20 different versions that you can try and they all kick butt!

One of the best variations of lunges are walking lunges (and a couple ways to do these slightly different to change the emphasis). Instead of standing lunges where you either lunge forward or lunge backward for 1 step and come back, with walking lunges you keep traveling forward on each step for anywhere from 10-30 steps, and then you turn around and come back that same distance.

A couple ways to improve on these and get better results over time is to increase your distance each time or start carrying dumbbells to increase the resistance. Walking lunges done right are a real thigh-burner!

Here’s a couple tips to keep in mind when performing walking lunges:

1) Step far enough forward so that your front shin stays approximately vertical and your front thigh is approximately parallel to the floor at the bottom of the lunge.

2) Your leg behind you while lunging should have

Child’s Fitness and Exercise

One of the benefits of fitness and exercise, as any physician will tell you, it that fitness and exercise help control blood sugar. A diabetic who takes medication daily may find that less medication is needed with a regular fitness and exercise program. Many diabetics who stay with fitness and exercise programs find that they are able to quit the medication and get their diabetes under control in a totally natural way.

Triglycerides

Triglycerides are also too high for many people in the western world. High triglycerides are linked to heart disease, including heart attacks and strokes. A great natural way to reduce your level of triglycerides is to simply begin and stick with a fitness and exercise program, while eating a sensible diet. Triglycerides at too high a level are also linked to high blood sugar, and it is common for diabetics to have high triglyceride levels. Therefore, in this case fitness and exercise can take care of two potential health risks at the same time.

Contributory Factors

Being over weight has become a way of life for far too many people and there have been many investigations into what has caused it:

Are You Exercise Junkies?

A true exercise junkie is someone who is addicted to exercise, whether it is to attain the perfect body or because they are hooked on the high they get from the endorphins that the body produces when exercising.

To be a junkie is to have your life taken over.

Moderation in all respects.

Try telling that to an exercise maniac. It’s like telling someone they’re an alcoholic. They won’t believe you or at least they won’t admit to being addicted.

How do you recognize someone who has let keeping fit take them over?

It becomes an all-embracing compulsion. The true junkie will eat, sleep and breathe exercise and if he or she recognizes that they have a problem the chances are that they are likely to be a member of several gyms, in order to try and hide their obsession.

They have to feel in control of their lives and bodies and of course strenuous exercise drives all the usual daily worries out of the mind.

Self-esteem and body image play a great part in this particular neurosis. Young girls can easily become hooked in order to compete with their peers.

Home Exercise

At home, you can train at your own time. You are unaffected by the timings of your gym or your trainer. This is an excellent solution for stay-at-home moms, individuals who work from home, and individuals with an erratic work schedule. It’s nice not to have to pay for a gym membership.

Personally, I enjoy exercising at home, because that’s how I started. It’s fun and convenient. I have a treadmill that faces a large TV, some dumbbells and a never-say-die attitude. That’s all it takes. With the number of tools available today, it is simple to set up a gym atmosphere in the comforts of your own home. I train most of my clients in their own home. To get results at home, you need self-motivation and discipline, since you are going to be on your own. It’s not as hard as you think and can be enjoyable and beneficial. When you are committed mentally to pursue a leaner, energized and dynamic fitness level, changes happen much faster.

There are some reasons that home exercise can fail. It’s likely your hectic schedule or a long commute discourages you from exercise. Sometimes, an individual can get

Jump Rope Workout

When starting an exercise program, it’s important that you work your way into it. If you have been doing aerobic exercise for some time, you’ll be able to “jump” into a fitness jump rope workout easily. Once you’re comfortable with the motion, you can increase your speed and incorporate different jumps.

For those new to aerobic exercise or for those resuming an exercise program after some time off, it’s very important to take it slow as your body adjusts. In addition, because jump roping is a high impact exercise, meaning that both feet leave the ground simultaneously, there is a greater risk of injury.

Even if you were a star jump roper as a child, chances are you may need to practice jumping as an adult. Go easy on yourself as you become accustomed to the movement. Even basic jumping requires a high level of coordination.

As you become accustomed to the movement, you can increase the length of time you exercise, the speed at which you jump, and the types of moves you incorporate into your routine.

Warm Up

For both experienced and new exercisers, it is vital to warm up before

Why Exercise Programs Fail?

Jumping in with both feet – Jumping into a fitness program with both feet is very common. Many times people get all ho-hum with their goals and exercise program and have a do-or-die attitude. Granted, it’s a good attitude to have, but it can also be a legacy.

Begin your program slowly by taking small successful steps each day, week, and month rather than just diving into the program and hitting rock bottom suddenly. You must have elbow room to ensure success. The body does respond to small amounts of exercise and those who begin by doing too much too quickly end up on the sidelines due to burnout.

Carrying all your eggs in one basket – All too often, many people begin their fitness endeavors by cutting calories, adding endless hours of cardio, and popping weight loss supplements left and right. Your body adapts very quickly and if you use all your resources at one time, you won’t have anything to fall back on when you hit a stalling point.

Begin lowering calories slowly and adding cardio slowly. Keep harmony and balance. After a few weeks you can incorporate the supplement of your choice

Why Exercise On The Cardiovascular System is Important?

Doing exercise has more importance than just to lose weight; it also keeps your cardiovascular system healthy. The cardiovascular system consists of the veins, arteries, capillaries and the heart.

Exercise helps to improve your blood circulation because when you exercise the heart pumps the blood to the outer limbs for example the hands and feet. Exercise also helps to oxygenate your blood and so carry a good supply oxygen to your organs in your body.

It also helps strengthen your heart, because the heart is a muscle just like your triceps and biceps, although it never tires, and as you exercise the heart gets stronger. The fitter you are the less your heart has to work because your blood vessels will work better, as exercise will help the blood vessel linings to be more flexible.

The fitter you are the lower your blood pressure will be as a stronger heart can beat slower but still pump large volumes of blood around the body. On the other hand a weak heart needs to work harder to do the same work.

Your resting heart rate is also lower if you are fitter because the heart does
