How to overcome exercise barriers?

Exercise is a habit! It may sound surprising but it is true. It is common for those who exercise daily to feel a difference if they skip a day. It strengthens the heart and lungs (cardio) if you do it daily because the heart is also a muscle. It gets stronger with exercise. If the heart is strong, so is the physical ability too.

Aerobic exercise is good for physical performance as it increases the heart rate and makes the muscles use more oxygen. It is recommended to do these with some intensity (moderate-intensity) for at least 150 minutes per week. But many people fail to reach this goal due to not being able to enjoy the exercises or suffering from physical and health problems. Some even put off thinking it will take too long. How to overcome such obstacles? you will not find the way If you put your mind to thinking.

Time Allocation

The first thing to do is divide the time according to availability. 150 minutes per week is two and a half hours. It is enough to exercise five days a week for half an hour a day. It will take only 20 minutes If done every seven days . There is no rule to do it all at once. It can be divided into 10 minutes interval for two or three times a day.

Mind Game

The next thing to do is to change your mindset towards a more intense workout. Serious tasks means difficult. Actually small tasks it’s not that hard. Exercise intensity can be assessed with a simple ‘talk test’. If you are working out so much that you sweat, but you can easily talk to others, then you are doing some serious exercise. A very fast heart rate. Strong and rapid breathing. Profuse sweating. Muscle fatigue are signs of excessive exercise. Exercise intensity can be calculated based on these. Exercising a bit more and breathing a little harder is like doing intense exercise.

Walking fast:
It’s the easiest of the intense exercises for example. But what is speed? It depends on the individual. It is not possible to set the same speed for everyone. But experts suggest that if you can walk 2.5 kilometers at 120 feet per minute. Walking while swinging your arms and taking deep breaths will give your whole body a tough workout.

Simple Walk in /out of house:
No need to worry about not having that much space. You can also march where you are. First, stand with your feet slightly flat. While bending the elbows and swinging the hands, the knees should be raised and lowered one after the other in a march. Do this 50 times with a steady rhythm. Rest for a while and do it again.

Household work:
