Injury is one of the main reasons people give up exercise…especially beginners. I’ve always been shocked to see someone new to exercise, out trying to run a couple of miles or really “putting it to the grind” so to speak. Doing this is only setting yourself up for injury and a dusty treadmill.
The biggest rule and advice I can give you is to START OUT SLOWLY!!!! Mount Rushmore wasn’t created overnight and neither is a fit body. Trust me on this…you WILL burn calories even by starting out with only a 20 minute walk. Think about it…if you haven’t included exercise in your routine or don’t have an active job, your body isn’t used to burning many calories. As a result, ANY form of exercise is going to immediately start burning calories and you will see results.
Make sense? I thought so. Now get out and move!
