Spring Fitness Tips
With longer, sunnier days, springtime can motivate people to become more physically active and it can feel like we have more time for activities, including exercise. Here are three tips to help you get fit
1. Develop an Exercise Routine
Knowing the right way to approach your exercise routine can help you to stay motivated to keep going. When you are trying to develop your routine, consult with your physician to help tailor an exercise regimen that works for you. If you are living with CKD or having dialysis treatments, it’s essential to follow your doctor’s instructions.
2. Know The Right Exercises for Your Goals
Everyone is different, so each exercise should be the right one that works for you as well as ensures that it doesn’t go over your exercise limitations. Also, knowing the appropriate intensity level is key to ensuring that your workout is safe for you. When getting back into an exercise routine, take it slow and try some low-impact workouts such as:
- Bicycling (indoors or outdoors)
- Light yoga
3. Know When to Stop Exercising
When doing any type of physical activity, it's critical to understand when you should stop. Cut your workout short if you experience any of the following:
- Shortness of breath
- Chest pain
- Irregular or rapid heartbeat
- Leg cramps
