4 kinds of Exercise

Top o’ the morning to you!

Today I’m going to explain a little bit about the 4 different kinds of exercise. If you work on all 4 of these you will not only look great, but you will feel great, and everything you do will be easier and more enjoyable. So listen carefully.

First is your cardiovascular system. This is what allows you to keep going for long periods of time. Runners who have strong cardiovascular systems can run for miles and miles without having to stop to take a breath. The way to work this out is to use it a lot. Running, biking, swimming, and other long-distance exercises are very effective for this. This is one of the most important.

Second is muscle mass and strength. If you want to look good and be strong, you have to exercise your strength. The way to do this is to lift weights, or lift yourself with pushups, pullups, or situps, or sprinting(for legs). You will be surprised at how fast your strength increases when you begin to consistently do this kind of workout.

The third form of exercise is your Flexibility. If you have good flexibility you not get hurt as much, and you will be able to bend and stretch with no problem. The way to exercise this is to stretch. Hamstring stretches are very common, where you lean down to touch your to toes while keeping your legs straight. Try this out, and try exploring your own kind of stretches. There are countless ways to stretch the different muscles of your body.

The 4th and last type of exercise is Balance. Taking up something like Yoga or Pilates would really help with that. In addition to our main muscles we use every day. We have 100s of tiny muscles that don’t get used much. These little muscles help us balance. When these muscles are conditioned we feel like we have greater control of our body without falling off balance. Everything becomes easier to do.

If you work all these exercise forms into your daily routines you will see big changes in the way you look, feel, and do things. Go for it!
