Yoga is a perfect fitness practice of growing better physically, mentally and spiritually. Side Plank fitness exercise routine A regular and consistent yoga practice can bring about a multitude of benefits that contribute to better health and being less stressed. Physically, it is important to build muscle AND create elongated muscle fibers and flexible joints.  Muscles provide strength and flexible joints provide ease of movement and agility.

Nobody I know likes the feeling of being stiff with little range of motion in the joints.  Unfortunately, this is a natural occurring feeling as we age and lifestyles become more and more sedentary.  Getting your body stretched and twisted while building muscle will change your body, your attitude, your well being and your life.

Switch Your Fitness Up

Now, sometimes I like to put in my headset and hear some pump-up loud music and take the workout to the park. It’s good to shake up the muscles and the mind a bit.  The combination of some good old fashioned exercises like squats, lunges, push-ups, etc. are a perfect way to give your muscles a little surprise.  Muscles need to be surprised now and then so that they don’t become accustomed to the same old routine.  Once muscles know what to expect from your fitness routine, the routing itself looses its effect.  Change is good.

Sticking to It

You are capable of anything you put your mind to.  It might take weeks, maybe months before you see results.  It’s a matter of sticking to your goal and paying attention to the little growths along the way.  Little growths result in bigger results some day, so never give up!

Creating a fitness routine is so important.  You can start with simple exercises and just a few minutes and progress from there.  It doesn’t matter where you start.  It matters that you start.  It doesn’t matter where you’re at.  I’t matters where you’re going.  It matters that you’re moving forward in the right direction.  Baby steps are still steps.
