Have a Well-Balanced Workout
Stretching must be included, too - flexibility promotes joint health, reduces stress and helps posture. Balance is also important, especially as we get older and are more prone to falls. Balance and stretching can be performed in a yoga or tai chi workout. Core stability is the final component in a healthy workout - the muscles in your abdomen, lower back and pelvis comprise your core. It enables your entire body to move more effectively. Crunches and exercise ball work improve core fitness.
