We just gave you the perfect workouts. You're welcome Image: Twitter
We know you bunk gym and blame your trainer. But you can't do that anymore because a Harvard doctor just made a list of the perfect workout routines for your body. So, now you can pick what you like, and get going (to the gym).
In a Harvard Medical School health report called Starting to Exercise, Dr I-Min Lee says running is not the best exercise (it has long term effect on knees and digestive system) and lists the five alternative exercises, which gives you more options. So, enough with the excuses already!
"You might call swimming the perfect workout", Min-Lee was quoted saying by Daily Mail. A lap around the pool works on every muscle in our body, while getting your heart rates up. Of course, all that splashing also helps the fun.
Tai Chi is a popular Chinese marital art form, which you can find in all of Keanu Reeves movies. In fact, as long as we are considering martial arts, one can even think about Indian martial art forms such like Kalaripayattu. Tai Chi essentially combines deep breathing, relaxation and body movements and helps with agility and posture.
I-Min Lee was quoted in the study as saying, "Tai chi is particularly good for older people because balance is an important component of fitness, and it is something we lose as we get older."
