The first step to end sedentary lifestyle is to step forward and mentalize that it is advisable to exercise. We guide you on the sport that best suits your needs.
Swimming. A sport that can be practiced by anyone regardless of age. It reduces the tension of bones and joints, that’s why it is especially indicated for people with bone problems, arthritis, back pain or obesity. Also for asthmatics, since the humid environment of the pool facilitates breathing. Also, swimming decreases the increase in muscle tone caused by stress.
Running It’s fashion practice. You only need a shirt, sports pants and good shoes. For those who want to lose a few kilos more, be agile or reduce fat, running is their sport. However, it must be taken into account that it can cause injuries in the form of fractures, sprains or muscle tears. That is why it is essential to warm up and stretch well before going for a run. It should also be noted that you can not do a marathon the first day: it is convenient to go little by little, increasing the time depending on how we are feeling.
Walk. One of the best options to get started in sports. Indicated for those who do not want to make great efforts. It does not have a high impact and is easy to perform. Of course, you have to opt for walks of at least half an hour two or three times a week and at an accelerated pace.
Cycling. Cycling, in its different modalities (road, mountain …), mobilizes the muscles of the legs, hips and glutes. It is one of the recommended exercises for people with cardiovascular problems. Like running, you have to start practicing calmly, gradually increasing the number of kilometers.
Tennis. Several studies have confirmed that tennis players have more confidence in themselves and levels of depression and anxiety are lower. Tennis is a very complete sport: it burns fats, improves cardiovascular capacity, strengthens the bones preventing osteoporosis and improves the muscles of the arms and legs.
Yoga. Yoga is a millenary discipline to strengthen and calm body, soul and mind through breathing and meditation. It is the indicated activity for those who suffer stress, anxiety, depression and have problems sleeping. Also for those who seek to develop their spiritual part and banish bad habits of life.
