Where there is life, there is movement！
We not only need to have a sports-loving heart, but also should incorporate these exercise tips:
1.Distribution of energy in various events.
The planned distribution of energy in the 5km event: steady running at one’s usual speed, is the best way to run a marathon. This approach is most often used. A runner needs to carefully analyze their own strengths and create a detailed running plan.
2.Standard posture and slow exertion.
Intense exertion at the beginning of the race is not the best plan; it will increase the strain on heart muscles. Instead, transit from slow to fast pace and from light to heavy exertion with a gradual increase of intensity that provides the body with a reasonable period of adaptation.
3.Scientific water drinking is essential in exercise.
People perspire more and lose water quickly while exercising. It is essential to replace the lost water through drinking. However, excessive drinking will produce urine and increase water loss. The better approach is to drink a small amount of water, often, during exercise and continue drinking through the entire process.
4.Proper cooling after exercise.
After exercise, the body needs time to cool down and the pulse to return to normal. You can slow down your activity gradually, until your pulse returns to 120/min or less. The final “cooling” is completed when you feel that your heartbeat has returned to normal and your respiration has slowed gradually.
