Customizing exercise

Exercise is one excellent means of achieving optimal level of health and fitness. However, it should be noted that different people need different levels of exercise. Some customization is necessary when setting fitness goals. It will mainly depend on what you want to specifically achieve. For instance, if you simply want to lose weight, then the most advisable type of exercise would be cardiovascular exercises such as biking, jogging and swimming.

There is actually a wide range of options when it comes to cardio exercises and many are just variations with unfamiliar names and complex moves. When it comes to cardio exercises, the bottom line is to burn excess fats by raising the heartbeat and improving blood flow. Exercises that are included in this category are also known as cardio-pulmonary exercises because they also increase the efficiency of the respiratory system.

The types of exercise that will suit you best will also depend on your body type of built, whether you are a mesomorph (muscular), an ectomorph (slim) or an endomorph (chubby). For example, if you are an ectomorph and already very thin, it is not very advisable to immediately proceed with heavy lifting exercises. Otherwise, you might injure yourself in the process. Certain initial assessment and conditioning will be necessary.
