  • And here’s the really good news: for most people, moderate exercise is the most beneficial for overall health; you don’t need to keep intensifying your workouts. In fact, exercising too strenuously can sometimes lead to diminishing returns on your fitness levels or lead to injuries or other problems. While everyone is different, most people are much better off training for a 5K or 10K rather than a marathon or exercising for 30-45 minutes a day rather than hours at a time.

    Have you ever thought that is actually a lie? If there are busier people than you who make it happen, then so could you. Yet even though we acknowledge that, we still believe that yes, “we are too busy to exercise”.

  • Instead of lifting overhead to strengthen the deltoid and triceps (muscles used in the military press), consider a 70-degree lateral raise with low to moderate weight and higher repetitions. To work the triceps, lying on your back with a dumbbell in one hand, extend your elbow to contract the triceps. Use the opposite hand to support the back of the elbow during the exercise.

    Current recommendations for most adults is at least 150 minutes of moderate activity per week. You’ll get there by exercising for 30 minutes, 5 times a week. Can’t find 30 minutes in your busy schedule? It’s okay to break things up. Two 15-minute workouts or three 10-minute workouts can be just as effective.

  • Barrier to exercise Suggestion

    I’m self-conscious about my weight, injury, or disability.

    Exercise doesn’t have to mean working out in a crowded gym. You can try exercising early in the morning to avoid the crowds, or skip the gym altogether. If you can afford it, a personal trainer will come to your home or workout with you at a private studio. Walking, swimming, or exercising in a class with others who have similar physical limitations can make you feel less self-conscious. There are also plenty of inexpensive ways to exercise privately at home.

    I’m scared of injury.

    Choose low-risk activities, such as walking or chair-bound exercises, and warm-up and cool-down correctly to avoid muscle strains and other injuries.

    I can’t motivate myself.

    Explain your exercise goals to friends and family and ask them to support and encourage you. Better still, find a friend to exercise with. You can motivate each other and turn your workouts into a social event.

    I’m not coordinated or athletic.

    Choose exercise that requires little or no skill, such as walking, cycling on a stationary bike, or aquajogging (running in a swimming pool).

    Exercise is boring.

    But video games are fun. If traditional exercise is not for you, try playing activity-based video games, known as “exergames”. Games that simulate bowling, tennis, or boxing, for example, can all be played seated in a chair or wheelchair and are fun ways to burn calories and elevate your heart rate, either alone or playing along with friends.

    We all have friends who, despite hectic schedules, never miss a day at the gym. Who can't stop talking about the . Who can't stop smiling after class. Sure, they’re a little, well, obsessive about working out. But we envy them! The good news is we all have the potential to become fitness-obsessed, says Tom Holland, a Connecticut-based celebrity fitness trainer, exercise physiologist, and expert in sports psychology. Here are 20 proven ways to make exercise a habit.

Further, the time required remains pretty much the same as youprogress from rung to rung. Since each rung calls for morerepetitions of each exercise this might not seem to make sense, but asyour conditioning improves you'll find you're performing the exercisesat a brisker pace, keeping the total time roughly constant. If oneexercise seems to take forever to get through, that's an indicationyou've moved up to that rung too quickly.
