Physical Activity is Important for everyone!

Post by Guest on 6th July 2010, 1:38 pm

Physical activity is anything that gets your body moving. Start at a comfortable level. Once you get the hang of it, add a little more activity each time you exercise. Then try doing it more often.

What kinds of activity should I do?
To get the health benefits of physical activity, do a combination of aerobic and muscle-strengthening activities.

Aerobic (air–oh–bik) activities make you breathe harder and cause your heart to beat faster.
Muscle-strengthening activities make your muscles stronger.
How much aerobic activity do I need each week?
Do moderate or vigorous aerobic activity for at least 10 minutes at a time.

If you choose moderate activities, do at least 2 hours and 30 minutes a week. Moderate activity includes things like walking fast, dancing, and raking leaves.
If you choose vigorous activities, do at least 1 hour and 15 minutes a week. Vigorous activity includes things like jogging, jumping rope, swimming laps, or riding a bike on hills.
If you have a health condition, be as active as you can be. Your doctor can help you choose the best activities for you.

How do I know if my activity level is moderate or vigorous?
Your body is working at a moderate level when you can talk but not sing. Your body is working at a vigorous level when you can't say more than a few words without pausing for a breath.

How much muscle-strengthening activity do I need each week?
Muscle-strengthening activities include push–ups, sit–ups, and lifting weights. Do muscle-strengthening activities at least 2 days a week.

Be sure to strengthen all major muscle groups including the legs, hips, back, chest, stomach, shoulders, and arms. Do these activities to the point where it's hard for you to do more without help.

What are the benefits of physical activity?
Physical activity increases your chances of living longer. Exercise can also help:

Control your blood pressure, blood sugar, and weight
Raise your "good" cholesterol
Prevent heart disease, colorectal cancer, and type 2 diabetes
And that’s not all. Getting more active can:

Be fun
Help you look your best
Improve your sleep
Make your bones, muscles, and joints stronger
Lower your chances of becoming depressed
Reduce falls and arthritis pain
Help you feel better about yourself

Is physical activity for everyone?
Yes! People of all ages and body types benefit from physical activity. Even if you feel out–of–shape or haven't been active in a long time, you can find activities that will work for y
