Four most important types of exercise

Exercising can be time consuming and quite frankly the last thing you want to do after a long day, especially when you don’t really know what you’re doing, we’ve all been there! However, we may have the solution… we’re about to share with you the four most important types of exercise to keep yourself fit and healthy.

1. Endurance

Did you know, many regular everyday activities require you to exercise your muscles frequently for an extended length of time? So, keeping on top of your endurance exercises can be very beneficial to everyday life. There are lots of examples online you can perform weekly to improve your endurance either at your local gym or even in front of the telly! Here are some of our favourites:

  • Swimming
  • Running
  • Cycling

But wait… Don’t forget to take rest days and have your daily Active Curcumin to help support your bone and muscle health.

2. Strength

Let us share some good news we found… Evidence shows that lifting weights burns more fat and has more promising long-term results and we all know most of us aren’t that keen on cardio! However, finding the exercises best for you can depend on your fitness levels, ability, what you enjoy most and even your personal goals, so always do your research. Examples of strength exercises:

  • Press ups
  • Sit ups
  • Squats
  • Climbing stairs

Always remember to stretch before and after and keep hydrated whilst exercising.

3. Balance

Do you ever find yourself losing your balance just doing simple daily tasks? It happens to the best of us; however, it also shows how important it is not to forget to practice improving your balance daily, so we can all start avoiding tripping over our own two feet. According to Caroline DeGroot who is a physical therapist, “balance is an important aspect in carrying out both simple and complex movements.” Improving your balance is something most people forget about but is vital to your health. Try out these exercises to help:

  • Single leg lifts
  • Yoga

We really do learn something new every day!

4. Flexibility

We all watch those incredible gymnasts on TV and are just amazed with how flexible they are! No, don’t worry we’re not saying we all need to be as bendy as them, but we have discovered that flexibility has many key health benefits; it prevents muscle aches, injury and believe it or not is good for your heart, and actually our Active Curcumin range offers the same benefits too! Spending some time on improving your flexibility whilst taking your daily curcumin vitamin can be effective to your health and mental well-being. Here are some simple stretches to improve your flexibility:

  • Forward lunges
  • Standing quad stretch
  • Forward fold
