Bur studies have shown that physical activity is essential  for the maintenance of good  health, and any muscular activity  have the effect of training the heart and circulation.

Sprinting uphill again, about four times in all. This takes some ten minutes and develops strength in trunk muscles and the leg. Two or three runs at about 50% of top speed for five minutes, interspersed with a pause of  7-8 minutes. This training program takes about 35 minutes , and for those in the best condition,  two such phases of training a week are sufficient.

C. At home,  these simple exercises are believed to have good effects:

1) Lying on the back, lift upper body and, or both legs some inches off the floor, hold for five seconds, relax for four seconds, repeat up for 10 times.

2)   Standing with feet apart, roll shoulders about 15 times, changing direction every third roll.

    True we all need to be physically active to maintain a healthy lifestyle and the activities you do, do not have to be strenuous. I love walking, and may do a bit of jogging. I love the outdoors, so hiking and biking are apart of my life and activities.
