Most people go to the gym and immediately do the exercises they like. If you’re a man, that means bench press and curls. If you’re a woman it means hopping on the treadmill for a long slow walk or a long slow run. I know not everyone does this but stick with me for a little bit. This is one of the main reason some people feel they are working hard but not getting the results they want.
"Exercise strengthens the entire human machine — the heart, the brain, the blood vessels, the bones, the muscles. The most important thing you can do for your long-term health is lead an active life."
-Dr. Timothy Church, director of preventive medicine research at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge
