Starting An Exercise Regimen
Starting an exercise routine can be easy or hard depending on how you approach it. Follow this advice to get the most out of your activities:
1. Start out slow.
If you haven’t worked out in a long time, start slow and give your body time to adjust. Ease into more vigorous physical activities and work your way up over time.
2. Be patient.
Don’t expect to create a routine and see results over night. Building physical activity and exercise routines takes time, so try not to get discouraged if you don’t notice immediate changes in your body, there will be changes but they will be subtle and slow.
