TYPES OF EXERCISE

 

R

Resistance (weight, strength training).

Using muscle to exert force against resistance will increase muscle size, endurance and the body’s energy (calorie) expenditure.

R

Aerobic (cardio respiratory and cardiovascular).

Any non-stop, sustained activity using large muscle groups (especially legs) is considered aerobic exercise.

R

Flexibility (stretching, myofascial release).

Stretching and releasing tight muscles can help prevent injuries and assist in achieving proper muscle activation.

R

Core Control (torso strength).

Core strength is essential to maintain postural alignment, proper muscle activation and to optimize the benefits and safety of any exercise.

R

Balance

Muscular balance and core control are necessary to train the body to right itself when the body’s center of gravity is challenged.
