Human beings in their original state of living, had an abundance of healthy exercise out of doors and were compelled to find food, prepare it, raise crops, build houses, and gather fuel to live in simple comfort.
As they became more 'civilised' they delegated certain duties to others and confined themselves to limited activities. Today many of us do practically no physical work, while others only do physical work.
Everyone should take some exercise on a daily basis as part of a healthy lifestyle. The normal healthy body is nourished if it is used, if not used, it will becomed weakened.
Long walks away from the stress of modern society are excellent. The woods, forests, streams, rivers, and beaches, over hills and mountains, nature waits patiently for us to realise her amazing benefits.
The Yoga adepts focus their mind on their training routines, and use it in connection with their bodily movements. This increases the benefits as the supply of vital energy is drawn to the exercised part.
You should put life and interest into your workout and avoid listless mechanical training with your mind elsewhere. If you have fun and enjoy it you will obtain the maximum benefit and glow with Vitality.

What is Exercise?
It is a process by which the cells of the body are placed under controlled stress, and stimulated to reach a certain degree of metabolic efficiency.
It increases your strength and vitality.
Most routines are good at stimulating particular body tissue, but leave aside the strengthening of others. An efficient form of training will be one which reaches every cell of the body.
The key to a good workout is oxygen intake and the goal is to increase your aerobic capacity, which is the amount of oxygen your body can process within a given time.
This is related to your ability to breathe deeply which ensures oxygen is carried by the bloodstream throughout your body.
There are thousands of fitness systems, but according to research done by the North American Space Agency (NASA), who declared that the power of simple bouncing is the most complete system, yet devised.
Aerobic Rebounding (mini trampoline) vibrates every cell in the body. It increases muscular strength and stimulates lymphatic ellimination of cellular toxins and waste materials. It also increases skeletal strength and enhances learning ability and of course its Great Fun.
As you perform your individual routine, there are certain simple techniques you can use to get...
