People were quickly abandoning steady cardio sessions with consistent intensity for rigorous anaerobic training.

Top 10 Exercise TipsWe get it. There’s a ton of information about exercise – some of it good, and some of it not-so-good. With all the catchy headlines, it can be tough to know how to exercise most effectively. So here is a valuable list of the top 10 exercise tips, whether you’re a beginner or a diehard gym rate, a senior or an athlete.

If something comes up, then move your workout time that day if possible, or to another day if necessary. Don’t simply skip it.
  2. Find something you like – Don’t run if you hate it, or workouts become unpleasant and difficult to adhere to. Try different machines, classes and activities to find what you enjoy and what your body can tolerate. Exercise isn’t necessarily comfortable, but it shouldn’t be a major drag either.
