We are going to review some of the things I talked about back when I first was talking about exercise. You may want to take some notes on this as we will have a quiz at the end!
How long should you exercise per day?
Well it’s recommended that people exercise at least 30 minutes a day to keep your body healthy.
Though you can do more you want to make sure to have a healthy balance with rest and exercise. You do not want to overdo the amount of exercise and hurt your body.
Should you eat and drink during exercise?
You should stay away from heavy foods and drinks while exercising. This way you don’t throw up your food and drinks.
You should drink some water during exercise to keep yourself from overheating. IT’S VERY IMPORTANT TO STAY HYDRATED!
How to stay safe during exercising:
You really don’t want to overdo yourself and get hurt.
Before exercising make sure if your at a gym you know how to use the equipment.
If you are running make sure you know the places were there a bumps or holes in the ground so you don’t fall.
