Health Tip: Set an Exercise Schedule01/19/12
(HealthDay News) -- Adhering to an exercise routine can be a
challenge, but creating a schedule can help you stay on track.
The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons suggests how to
create a workout schedule:
- Create a weekly schedule that includes time off.
- Start out by scheduling moderate-intensity exercise of about 30
minutes per session, including a variety of activities from walking
- Consider scheduling shorter intervals at first, such as by
allocating two 15-minute workouts per day instead of one 30-minute
- Avoid skipping a workout in the beginning if you feel sore,
unless you feel severe pain or notice any swelling.
- Schedule workouts in the time of day that's most comfortable.
Avoid exercising just after a meal or outdoors when it's too hot or
- Wear comfortable, supportive shoes that fit well.
