What is the best health and exercise program in the workplace?

Move: Unless your workplace has an exercise facility, this can be difficult. Get up and walk as much as possible, take the stairs whenever given the chance. Take some time at lunch to get in a quick trip to the gym. Another good tip is to not snack on many of the goodies that often are around. Before you know it, the calories have added up!

What is the best health/exercise program to do in the workplace?

What is the best health/exercise program to do in the workplace?

A gym or walk: I have noticed that a lot of big corporations have now added a gym in the building. Employees can now work out before or after work or during lunch. Employers have noticed more productivity by those employees who work out. There is more blood flow to the brain so they are sharper on the job. If you work for a smalller company, a walk around the parking lot may help. Also, take the stairs!

I need an exercise program for the fall/winter?

I need an exercise program for the fall/winter?

In-home DVDs: I'm a huge fan of programs that include both aerobic and resistance exercises, target different muscle groups and that rely on "muscle confusion" to vary the routines. If appropriate for your goals and fitness level, p90x and related programs have been popular and successful for many people.

What is the most important part of an exercise program?

What is the most important part of an exercise program?

Enjoy your exercise: It does not have to be trendy! Good old walking is simple and inexpensive. Be as brisk as you can for 30 to 45 minutes. Any other aerobic activity you enjoy such as biking, dancing, swimming, climbing are also good. Also toning and building your muscle with lighter weights (so that you can comfortably do more reps) increases your metabolism, helps weight loss and is heart healthy.

I want to know what's the best facial exercise program?

There is no "best": In regards to facial exercises. While it may help, there is just as much a possibility that facial exercises could actually hurt - at least in regards to the "wrinkle" perspective.

What should I consider when beginning an exercise program?

What should I consider when beginning an exercise program?

Exercise starting: First, an evaluation by a healthcare professional, either a trainer, or your doctor. At 38, you could have some undiagnosed medical conditions. High blood pressure, arthritis, elevated cholesterol, back problems...which all could affect an exercise program. Second, start slow. Low impact. Short amount of time. Many get frustration by expecting results too fast. Try to do too much, too quickly.

Diet exercise advice: First, a discussion with your physician as to your goals. Supervised physician programs are more successful.

How many minutes of cardio a day would you recommend for someone starting an exercise program?

How many minutes of cardio a day would you recommend for someone starting an exercise program?

Cardio start up: Length of cardio at your beginning of a program depends upon your present level of conditioning (muscle, heart, muscle adaptations, CV adaptions to physical exercise), AND intensity of what you do. My personal perspective based on experience is start with 15-20 min of moderate cardio exertion. Pace carefully. Warm up for 3-4 min, slow down for 5 min. Steady cardio for 15 min. Add 5 min ev. 2 wks

Please tell me how long it takes for to get noticeable results when starting a diet/exercise program?

Please tell me how long it takes for to get noticeable results when starting a diet/exercise program?

It depends: On the program. The more carefully you eat, the more consistently (not vigorously) you train, the more rested you are the quicker results will begin to show. Remember, results will show more quickly for people who (1) don't have a lot of weight to lose, (2) eat healthfully, (3) and are in better general shape initially. That said, dramatic results can occur in a matter of weeks!

What to if I am looking for a suggestions for a hypertension exercise program - any ideas?

Aerobic Exercise: The best program to reduce blood pressure is one that causes weight loss through diet and exercise. Each 5% weight loss will reduce systolic BP by about 4 mmhg. Aerobic exercise is the most effective at reducing bp, but any exercise is better than nothing. Swimming is probably the worst for reducing bp.

What diet and exercise program is best for me?

An MD: Visit might put one's mind at ease. Coexisting medical conditions often require an adjustment of any conditioning program to lower the potential risks. That said, the best program will be the one that will (1) allow for consistent engagement (usually based on one's interest) and that (2) supports the desired goals. Strength, aerobics, endurance, and/or any combination.

Can you tell me about insanity exercise program?

Can you tell me about insanity exercise program?

I looked at the: Hype online. It seems questionable to me. A 60 day program seems too short and may lead to rapid weight loss that may come back just as quickly. I would have a physical before doing any extreme workout program. I would recommend starting exercising gradually and increasing it over time. Find exercises that you enjoy and can continue for life not for just 60 days.
