Exercise is a way of challenging the muscles to grow, strengthen, and maintain muscle, energy, and the movement of oxygen and energy throughout your body. To move your body in any manner for at least thirty to sixty minutes a day is all it really takes to maintain ideal health. Moving includes walking, swimming, playing sports, walking the dog, doing squats, cleaning the house, push-ups, sit-ups, running, jogging, jumping, dancing, bicycling, and literally any other way that requires movement from your muscles. Contrary to popular belief, high-intensity exercise is not the sole form of exercise needed to see beneficial outcomes. In time, learning your personal boundaries will become the most important guideline for long-term personal strength, for each person benefits from movement at varying levels, as well as, intensities.
