Get the most out of your exercise routine

It’s essential to consider a few things before starting a new workout routine.


1. Medical Clearance : Regular exercise can help you in many ways. But if it’s been awhile since you’ve exercised and you have health issues, it's a good idea to talk to your doctor before starting a new exercise routine


2. Warm-Up:

  • It’s important to warm up before your workout because it can help prevent injuries and improve your athletic performance

  • Start your workout with some simple warm-up aerobic exercises like arm swings, leg kicks, and walking lunges

  • Alternatively, you can warm up by doing slower movements of your intended exercise. For example, walk before you run, or stretch before you begin a full yoga routine

3. Cool down

  • Take a couple of minutes to cool down and restore your normal breathing patterns and to even reduce the chance of muscle soreness

  • Cooling down is important because it eases your body into a return to its normal state

4. Stay hydrated

  • Ensure that you are well hydrated before your exercise and frequently replenish fluids while you’re at it

  • Hydrating after your workout helps you recover quickly

  • Hydrating during and after a low intensity workout with plain drinking water

  • Salted lime water, or a sports drinks with not more than 6% sugar content are good choices if you intend to train at a moderate to advanced intensity level

5. Listen to your body

  • If you’re not used to exercising everyday, be mindful of your limits

  • If you feel pain or discomfort while exercising, stop and rest before continuing

  • Pushing through pain is not a good idea, as it can cause serious and lasting injuries

6. Optimize Nutrition: Be sure to consume the right diet to support your fitness program, including your pre- and post-workout meals
