Safety Tips For Physical Activity: Staying active is key for good health. No matter your age or fitness level, getting more physical activity will help support your body and mind. Experts recommend 150 minutes of moderate physical activity per week. Staying safe while being active is equally important. You want to avoid getting hurt. Getting hurt will throw you and your fitness goals off-track. Has it been a long time since you’ve exercised? Or are you starting a new activity? Begin slowly with low-intensity exercise. Don’t overdo it. Remember to warm up before exercising and cool down afterward. If you are starting a new strength training exercise, look for expert tips on proper form. Use smooth, steady movements to lift weights into position. Start out with light weights and avoid locking your arms or legs. And don’t exercise the same muscle group two days in a row. Proper shoes and clothing are important for safety too. Look for shoes with non-skid soles and cushioned arch support. Clothes should be comfortable and right for the setting. You are on the right road, we should all keep active.
