Exercise to maintain health and strengthen physique

Exercise to maintain health and strengthen physique

Life lies in sports. Although exercise can enhance your physique, improper exercise is not only not conducive to health, some even cause disease.


1. Exercise more
For middle-aged and old people or young people, first of all, exercise more, especially those who often sit in the office. Only after years of daily exercise can the cumulative effect of exercise be achieved.
2. Warm up before exercise
Exercise in spring should be scientific, especially when the body has been silent all winter. Muscle function is at a low level, and bones and ligaments are very stiff. If you don't stretch well, twisting your waist or skipping rope can cause damage. So before exercise, everyone should kick his legs and turn his waist, and then do vigorous exercise after the muscles and joints of his body are active.
3. Keep warm
The climate is changeable in spring, and it is warm and cold at first, so you should dress appropriately for outdoor fitness. We should not take off our clothes immediately before exercise, and then gradually reduce our clothes when our body feels slightly hot after the preparatory activities, and then increase or decrease our clothes with the change of temperature and the amount of exercise. Moreover, in spring, it is foggy and windy, so the exposed parts of the limbs should not be too large during exercise to prevent joint pain caused by damp and cold.
4. Get up early and lie down early to prevent spring sleepiness
Many people always feel not enough sleep in spring. They are sleepy and depressed during the day, such as Meng Haoran's poem "sleep in spring without dawn", which is actually "sleepy in spring".
To improve spring sleepiness and discomfort, you should lie down early and get up early, and ensure 6-8 hours of sleep every day, so as to be refreshed and meet the needs of more activities in spring.
5. Gentle and continuous exercise is recommended for the elderly
Such as Taijiquan, Baduanjin, health stake and other sports combined with breathing. Exercise combined with breathing is not only conducive to the operation of limb Qi and blood, but also has a regulating effect on Yin and Yang of viscera Qi and blood.
6. Exercise and make choices during the day
Especially at noon when Yang Qi is relatively prosperous. At night or in the early morning, the body is full of yin and Yang, which is easy to disturb the movement of Qi, blood and Yin in the elderly.
