Million Moms, FItIndia, Priority to Fitness
To all the million moms out there looking to improve the quality of life million moms brings you Functional fitness exercises. These exercises train your muscles to work together and prepare them for daily tasks by simulating common movements you might do at home, at work or while raising kids.
While using various muscles in the upper and lower body at the same time, functional fitness exercises also emphasize core stability.
For example, a squat is a functional exercise because it trains the muscles used when you rise up and down from a chair or pick up low objects. By training your muscles to work the way they do in everyday tasks, you prepare your body to perform well in a variety of common situations.
Functional fitness exercises can be done at home or at the gym. For example, you can use resistance bands or dumbbells at home or do bodyweight movements such as pushups, situps, planks, and squats.
This type of training, properly applied, can make everyday activities easier, help reduce your risk of injury and improve your quality of life.
If you haven’t exercised for some time or if you have health problems, it’s a good idea to check with your doctor before starting any new exercise program. Similarly, if you’re pregnant, check with your doctor. Moderate activity is generally safe during pregnancy if you’re healthy, but your doctor can assess what’s best for you.
It’s also a good idea to start with bodyweight exercises. As you become fitter and ready for more of a challenge, you can add more resistance such as weights or resistance bands. But be careful not to add too much resistance to exercises that require high impact, as this places joints and soft tissues at more risk if these exercises aren’t performed optimally. Performing movements in the water is a low impact way of achieving functional exercise.
