7 Exercises Ideal For You

Yoga

Take yoga classes, since your body does not allow you to lift your favorite heavyweights, yoga is relatively easy, and anyone can do it. Yoga will help you stretch those tight muscles and slow the process of aging.

It requires minimum effort, and it will help you be at peace with your body through engaging exercise and meditation for your peace of mind.

Walking

Taking strolls down the park may not seem as much, but you burn lots of calories in the process. Just take a lazy stroll for like four times a week, that should be good enough for your health

Jogging

If you prefer marathons, take jogs every morning for a mere 10 minutes. Be easy on yourself though; your ligaments can not take too much strain.

Gardening

If you’re a naturalist, this is the least you can do to give back you the environment. Gardening is not too heavy so you can do it in the morning and evenings when it’s less hot.

Cycling

You don’t necessarily have to be a Lance Armstrong fan to love cycling, it comes naturally when you’re young, or it’ll dawn on you as you grow older. Take your bike down to the grocery store instead of your car or cab.
