Age: Teens – Routine: Introducing light exercise is great for becoming aware of the body, and movement.
Age: 20’s – Routine: Start to introduce some cardio into strength program, light running, swimming, or a circuit routine
Age 30’s – Routine: Try switching up routine, with emphasis on the upper body one day, and core strengthening the next – this will help keep the muscles confused
Age: 40’s – Routine: Try introducing balance tools such as a exercise ball into your routine.
Age: 50’ and Up – Routine: To maximize the benefits of your workout try working with a personal trainer, or join classes that are of interest.
To see best results it is said to exercise at least 2-4 times a week. Remember introducing a good well-balanced diet into any new routine will also help you meet your goal, and have you feeling even better.
