Physical exercise is one of the most important things in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. It is not only helpful to manage weight/physical appearence but it can also help with stress relief and mental performance. As a general goal, we should aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate physical activity everyday in order to maintain or lose weight. Personally, my primary focus is on “body building” so I go to the gym 5 or 6 times per week, following a “push”, “pull” and “legs” routine. For example, on my “push” days I focus on pushing exercises such as the bench press and shoulder press which primarily works the chest, shoulders and triceps. On my “pull” days I focus on pulling exercises such as pull ups/lat pull downs and rows which primarily works the back and biceps. Finally on “leg” days I focus on leg exercises such as squats and leg extensions, although to be honest I hate leg days.
No matter what your exercise routine is, from a strict gym routine to short walks/runs, all that matters is that your being active and moving your body. A healthy body, a healthy mind.
