Different Types of Exercises

Exercise improves health conditions or diseases. A regular exercise can help you prevent health problems and concerns like stroke, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, depression, certain types of cancer and arthritis. Exercise has four categories. They are endurance, strength, balance, and flexibility. Each category is different. You need to do them to get the maximum benefit. Some exercises fit into more than one category. Many endurance exercises build strength and strength exercises also help improve balance.



It is a fact that there are a lot of strength training exercises will also improve your balance. Endurance exercise includes activities that increase your breathing and heart rate. Walking, jogging, swimming, and biking are popular endurance exercises.

Build up your endurance gradually and think of a daily goal. If you are not into exercising for a quite long time so it is good for you to work your way up over time. It seems to be difficult to do it in the beginning because you have been from an inactive lifestyle. Make sure to begin with 5 or 10 minutes at a time. Do it repeatedly for a week or two and then go up to at least 30 minutes. Take note than less than 10 minutes exercise is not enough and will not give you the desired heart and lung benefits.



If you want to make your muscle stronger then strength exercises are recommended for you to do. These exercises also are called “strength training" or “resistance training." Try some small strength exercises and do it regularly in 20 minutes. This can make a big difference.

Planking is one of the most popular strength exercises. You can add planking as part of your regular routine. Through planking, you are working for your major muscle groups in your neck called the traps and this helps your posture. This is a good exercise especially if you spend a lot of time sitting at a desk as it helps support your neck. Climbing stairs, carrying groceries, lifting weights, using a resistance band or using your own body weight are popular “strength training" or “resistance training” exercises.



Doing a regular balance exercise help prevent falls which are a common problem to older people. Some lower body strength exercises can also improve your balance. Standing on one foot, Heel-to-toe walk and Tai Chi are the common balance exercises.



When you are flexible, you have more freedom of movement for other exercises and to your everyday activities. It is recommended that you include exercises that can stretch your muscles out. Shoulder and upper arm stretch, calf stretch and Yoga are exercises that you can try to improve your body’s flexibility.
