Morning exercises are the fitness routine that every health-conscious individual does in the first hour of the day. These exercises allow people to start their day on an active note. When you are making a list of ‘to-dos’ so that you put yourself first, it is advisable to put these exercises on the top priority.
Why we need morning exercises
Working out in the morning is beneficial in several ways. Its most important impact is seen on the blood circulation that improves due to the exercises. The improved blood circulation is required to:
- Prevent formation of clots in the body: Blood tends to clot as per the blood pressure level maintained in the body. By exercising regularly, the clot formation tendency decreases and the fresh blood reaches all parts of the body as required.
- To feel fresh: Spending one hour in the morning in Mother Nature allows you to inhale fresh oxygen. The oxygen flow throughout the body prevents the muscles and tissues from going sore. It allows the person to feel strong and fresh and take on the day with a better energy level.
- To make the body supple: Various exercises and yoga asanas work on the joints and make them firm and easy to move. As a result, the body gets rid of stiffness in various parts. With the help of exercises that work on limbs and back, the person can retain healthier posture and the overall demeanour looks confident and happy
- To feel mentally strong: Exercises instil a sense of achievement. Waking up in the morning before the world does and practising a fitness routine makes you feel special about yourself. Internally, the blood flow to the brain is regulated too. It reflects in the strong mental makeup. You can feel confident about the decisions you make and the mental exercises that you do throughout the day in the form of regular work. You will find an increase in productivity and betterment in the quality of work you do.
How much exercises are good for health
Well, this question is definitely not for quantifying. You need to listen to your body but challenge it, too, at the same time. Sometimes, people tend to overdo the thing and land up in bed for the coming days. It is better to maintain a healthy routine of exercises which is sustainable yet effective. Here is the overall fitness routine that anyone can do easily. The challenge will be to add on to repetitions so that you achieve the health goals too.
- Leg exercises: Training legs is good when you do the exercises three times a week. The day of working out will train the muscles and the break will provide the rest and nourishment the legs need. On the day of work out, every routine exercise should be done for 15 to 20 minutes. It is sufficient to meet the health goals sustainably. Concentrate on calves the first day, on the thighs the following day and finally on hips to get the complete leg workout.
- Arm exercises: You can train your arms 2 to 5 times a week. Arms get the most attention when you want to look presentable. The arms have a lot of work to do, higher as compared to the legs. Hence, their strength and agility is more wanted.
- While working on the arms, ensure that you do 2-3 exercises in a session. The more the number of days, the less lengthier should be the session. Every muscle group should get the work out; such should be your arm workout session.
In addition, you need to plan the workout to work on the tummy and other flabby regions if you have one. To stay fit, stick to the workout schedule. Do what suits your body instead of copying others’ goals and feeling frustrated. The way you handle yourself and work yourself out will be shown in the way you will feel fit and eager to do your planned work.
Assign one hour of day to yourself and work towards becoming your better version. The way you work out decides the momentum of the day. You will eat and sleep well and will have a good desire to work in a result-oriented manner. It is how exercises contribute to your health and wellbeing.
