Thanksgiving meals – yet another reason to begin a steady workout regimen

Alright, so it’s bad enough that it’s starting to get cold outside and a bit tougher to get out for a walk or a jog in the neighborhood, but now that Thanksgiving and holiday meals are around the corner, this may just be the most critical time to being a workout routine if you haven’t already. If it’s snowing outside then no worries, you can still find a way to sit and be fit. Maybe start with a few crunches here and there or maybe even a few pushups. The main thing is to get your blood flowing and your heart-rate up. Do this on a constant basis and your body will thank you in the long run.

Mix up your workout

Close to 80% of the diabetic population in America is obese. There is no question as to whether or not a workout routine will help most diabetics. The only question is what kind of routine should diabetics do? Will diabetics benefit more from weight lifting, running, circuit training, or aerobics. Personally, I think everyone can benefit from a proper Kung Fu workout, but the thing about martial arts is that they are not for everyone. Whether you’re a runner or a weight lifter, the best type of workout is one that mixes all types of exercise. Weights can add a bit of muscle and running can increase your lung capacity as well as endurance. The bottom line with working out is to try to fit in any kind of exercise every day. Although it is best to mix it up, working out period is a plus.
