Exercise is very important especially when you are getting older. The physical activity of forty years old and above is very different from the activity of a teenager. It is necessary to have exercise in order to become physically fit but how to start an exercise if you are getting older? As we know that at the age of forty years old and above it is the age where the focus is on career, job, business, and family and sometimes there is no time for an exercise.
To start exercise from scratch at the age of forty I start my exercise at 4:30 am. I do some basic stretching first to reduced muscular tensions, improved balance and postural awareness, increased movement efficiency, decreased risk of injury, and so that the muscle will be ready to react in any physical activities. After done in basic stretching I do sit up in order to strengthen the abdominal muscles. At first, I have only sixteen counts of seat up. After sit up, I continue my exercise by doing push up to help develop my arm muscle, I like this basic exercise because you can do push up anytime and anywhere. Jumping jack is the next exercise that I included because this exercise can help to make me energetic and burn calorie.
Aside from basic exercise mentioned above, I also have jogging exercises this can help to builds strong bones, improves cardiovascular fitness and helps to maintain a healthy weight. Don’t wait for tomorrow start your basic exercise from scratch today. There are lots of health benefits that you can get in doing exercise.
You can do exercise at home and there is no need to go outside because sit up, push up, jumping jack, and jogging (in place) can be done with in your room.
