The time will come when you have gotten all of the benefits of a particular exercise routine. It may be time to move to a more challenging or advanced level in order to continue to see returns.
If you are following a DVD exercise program at home you might be ready to move to the intermediate level. If you are taking a class at your gym, you might talk to the instructor and see if there are any advanced level classes that they offer that will challenge you more.
In order to continue to see returns when you exercise you must continue to increase the amount of effort or intensity, the frequency at which you work out, and the length of time of your workout. It can be helpful to consult with a personal trainer and tell them what you have been doing and ask them to help you to design a more challenging routine.
Women need to be in the best physical condition possible to handle their busy lives. It can be challenging for women to take time out of their busy lives to focus on their own needs, but they will soon find that the rewards for maintaining a consistent workout schedule will far outweigh the sacrifice of time.
Physical fitness is important at all stages of a woman's life. In their youth, women should stay in shape and exercise to maintain a healthy body size. In their childbearing years, exercise can help women handle pregnancy and childbirth better. For those women who never have children, being in good physical condition and a healthy weight is simply beneficial for their lives and will help to ward off diseases caused by obesity and a sedentary lifestyle. Finally, as we age, women tend to lose bone mass if they are not actively engaging in weigh bearing exercises that help to keep their bones strong. Throughout her life exercise plays a vital role in a women's healthy body and mind.
