Selecting an exercise


The key to staying consistent with exercise is to select an exercise programme that is enjoyable — one that fits in with your personality, lifestyle and fitness goals.

Cardiovascularexercise: Cardiovascular exercise burns calories, promotes blood circulation and strengthens the heart. Good choices include walking, swimming and cycling.


Strength training: An effective strength workout would include exercises that target the major muscle groups of the upper, mid and lower body. Good choices include weight bearing exercises like push-ups, sit-ups or exercising using weights, machines, or resistance bands.


Flexibility training: Flexibility exercises help keep the body supple and free from muscular stress. Good choices include yoga, pilates and stretching exercises.
