You, Your Kids and Physical Health
We all know that many kids nowadays lack physical exercise. With the number of electronic gadgets, gaming systems and television channels, it’s no wonder that we have forgotten how to get up off the couch and get moving. It’s easy after a long day to just want to veg in front of the television (trust me, I’ve done it myself a number of times), but sometimes, if we make that tiny bit of effort, we will feel so much better when we get active. Same goes for our kids! But, as with most everything else, it must begin with us.Workout Plan For Weekend Warriors

Distance running is a great sport that is enjoyed at a variety of levels by millions of competitive and recreational athletes. Whether you prefer to jog a couple of miles through the neighborhood, or are training to complete a marathon, distance running is a highly effective and efficient means of aerobic conditioning. Unfortunately, distance running is considerably less beneficial for your musculoskeletal system. Injury rates among runners are extremely high. In fact, at the high school level, cross-country runners experience more injuries than athletes in any other sport, including football and gymnastics. However, one of the most effective means for minimizing tissue trauma is to develop stronger muscles, tendons, fascia, ligaments and bones. This is the primary reason that every runner should perform regular strength exercise.Top 5 Ways To Increase Your Exercise Levels
