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.
