Health Tip: Practice a Well-Balanced Exercise Program
Don't focus on just one form of activity

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- To get the full benefits of regular exercise, experts say you should focus on many forms of activity.

The Cleveland Clinic says a balanced exercise program should include:

  • Strengthening exercises that repeatedly contract the muscles, improving strength, posture and wellness.
  • Flexibility and stretching exercises that gradually develop the muscles and improve range of motion.
  • Aerobic exercises that strengthen the lungs and heart and boost the body's use of oxygen.
