Watch your grip, keep it loose! wildfit Review One of my favorite tips is to lift your first finger, that takes the pressure off your forearms and allows you to focus more on the muscle your are working.The last exercise detail I want to discuss is posture and keeping a neutral position during exercise. The following are general guidelines for proper postures when performing exercises standing, lying down and seated. I always encourage my clients to do a quick body check, from their feet to their head, before they start an exercise."I hate exercise!" Sound familiar? Most of us have uttered that phrase at some point in our lives, whether it was rooted in leftover trauma from high school gym class or a dislike for sweat. Refusing to exercise altogether, however, will cause us to miss out on one the most effective and inexpensive ways to stay young, healthy, and alert.Here are some tips to help you turn exercise from something you dread into something you look forward to doing.Expand your definition of exercise. You may not realize it, but not all exercise happens at the gym. You'll get cardiovascular benefits and burn calories when you engage in fun, active hobbies such as golfing, tennis, and dancing. Plus when you do activities you like, you're more likely to keep doing and benefiting from them.Vary your routine. Even if you like exercise, if you do the same exercise, the same way, at the same time, it's only a matter of time before you'll get bored. It's important to mix up your routine, not only for your attitude, but also to keep challenging your body.Use a food and fitness journal. Documenting your activities in a food and fitness journal will both encourage you to keep exercising and enable you to see your progress. When you see how far you've come, you'll feel accomplished and be more likely to continue your healthy activities.Think of exercise as a reward not a punishment. Most of us cringe at the thought of exercise because we've equated it with torture. But if we reframe our concept, we can see how exercise is really a way to reward ourselves. If you sit hunched forward at a desk all day, doesn't stretching your muscles in an after-work yoga class sound inviting? How about a long walk or jog after a bad day at work? Or a refreshing swim during a hot day?
