Aerobic exercise is said to be the best exercise for avoiding heart disease. That’s great for people like me who enjoy running, walking, jazzercise and the like. But what about those who like to build muscle?
Recent studies have shown that strength training on equipment including leg curls, leg extensions, sit ups, overhead presses etc, has the same advantages as aerobic exercise. Now you weight lifters can feel good about the exercise you enjoy. If you haven’t been exercising, it’s time to get out there and start an exercise program today. It’s great for your heart.
Here’s a quick wrap up of what you missed here at Life Retreat this week. Have an awesome weekend!
THE ULTIMATE POOL TOY FOR WATER LOVERS
It’s getting warmer (at last!) with summer right around the corner. During the summer, the hot temperatures, high humidity and lots of sun, make you want to spend lots of time by the water. So, if you relax by the pool or compete in beach games on sunny days, ensure it’s done in style. On inflatable pool toys. Click here for details.
