Work it Out ... Effectively!

Not too long ago, I wrote a post on exercising for hair growth. What we should not forget is that exercise is first and foremost an important tool for body health. It is beneficial for the management and risk reduction of diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and other health problems. Additionally, it minimizes the symptoms of depression, may overcome obesity, and more. The link below is a slideshow to the most effective exercises and is worth viewing. I especially concur with brisk walks, lunges, squats (when done right), and push-ups. If you're a step above a beginner, I would also add running to this list. Running, just like walking, can be done anywhere and in any weather. Speaking as a former track athlete, it also works many parts of the body at once - from the legs to the abdomen to the arms.

Whatever exercise method you choose, make sure you speak with your doctor first and invest in a quality pair of gym shoes!
