Light Exercise to Increase Your Health

Here are some light exercise routines that I like.

Exercise is not required for weight loss but it is recommended to improve health. It will also tighten muscles, improve joint pain, burn more calories at rest, and make you feel better.

If or when you decide to exercise do not do it in excess because it can make you hungry. Exercise should make you feel better not worse. Also people with a lower metabolic rate who restrict calories have a longer lifespan.

Exercise for Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday:

Standing Dumbbell Curls and Single Arm Overhead Curls 4 sets of 10 reps using a 10 lb. weight. I started with 1 set and added a set after a week. You can even start with less weight if you need to.
