Exercise is any activity that attributes positively to a human’s physical fitness, health, and well-being. Classified into specific categories of exercise types that include aerobic (endurance), anaerobic (strength and resistance), and flexibility (stretching and motion), exercise is a varied and essential bodily practice for positive human growth and development. As a strategy for combating the detrimental physical effects of aging, a practice for gaining athletic skills, a tool for managing weight gain/loss, and an activity for general fun, exercise has long proven to be a beneficial human activity that should be regularly incorporated into our lifestyles. Exercise is commonly performed individually or in groups in either outdoor or indoor environments—often with the assistance of specialized exercise equipment.

How often should you exercise?

The right amount of exercise depends on the individual as well on other factors relating to the body and training, but it is recommended for adults to exercise at least 150 minutes per week. If you don’t exercise start with one day a week and increase frequency. If you are trying stay in shape exercise 4 to 5 days a week.

How much exercise is too much?

The amount of exercise that is too much depends on the individual but if you notice that you are often tired, unable to exercise at the same level, or need longer periods of rest you may be exercising too much. Too much endurance exercise is linked with structural remodeling of the heart, enlarged arteries, and increased anxiety and depression.

When is the best time to exercise?

The best time to exercise depends on the individual’s schedule and what they enjoy the most, but regardless of the time it should be consistent. There is no best time to exercise to burn the most calories, but a time of day can influence how you feel when exercising. For example, exercising in the morning is the best for people who have trouble with consistency.

Half Frog Pose (Ardha Bhekasana)
Group of scaled yoga drawings of women performing the Half Frog Pose

Half Frog Pose is a chest-opening, beginner posture. Half Frog Pose is known to open to the chest and shoulders as well as increase flexibility in the hips and thighs and back. Half Frog Pose is a great preparatory pose to backbends. When doing Half Frog Pose, avoid feeling anything in the knee, if the Yogi does feel a sensation in the knee, back off on the pose until more flexibility is acquired.

To do Half Frog Pose, lie on the tummy and rest the arms under the shoulders, like in Sphinx Pose. Press into the earth with the right hand, straightening the arm and reach back with the left hand to grab the top of the left foot. Pull the left foot towards the buttocks, keeping the pubic bone grounded to the earth. Repeat on the other side.

Half Frog Pose is a chest-opening, beginner posture. Half Frog Pose is known to open to the chest and shoulders as well as increase flexibility in the hips and thighs and back. Half Frog Pose is a great preparatory pose to backbends. When doing Half Frog Pose avoid feeling anything in the knee.

To do Half Frog Pose, lie on the tummy and rest the arms under the shoulders, like in Sphinx Pose. Press into the earth with the right hand, straightening the arm and reach back with the left hand to grab the top of the left foot. Pull the left foot towards the buttocks, keeping the pubic bone grounded to the earth. Repeat on the other side.
