Grow a garden. Gardening is a great workout. You will have to squat a lot, dig, pull weeds and carry heavy things. You can garden to help you burn a few extra calories a week, or you can think of other simple tasks to complete around your home.

When working out using weights, start by using smaller machines first. Small muscles tire out before the large ones, so use dumbbells before moving on to the larger machines. This allows your small muscles to rest while you work large muscle groups.

Use an array of different exercises to keep from getting into a workout rut. A varied routine makes it easier to stay focused and motivated when you are trying to become more fit. This also uses different areas of muscles so your body does not become accustomed to it and not benefiting from the exercise anymore.

Always dress comfortably when you are working out. There’s a lot of pressure out there, especially at gyms and fitness centers, to wear the trendiest workout clothes around. Don clothes which allow you freedom of movement, but don’t make you feel self-conscious. Proper clothes assist you in concentrating on getting fit, not what you are going to wear.

If you are feeling under the weather, skip your exercise routine. When you fall ill, your body needs all of its available resources for healing and recovering. It’s unlikely that you will add muscle to your frame or have the stamina for a workout while you’re under the weather. With this in mind, avoid exercising too strenuously until you are fully recovered. While you are waiting, get plenty of rest and eat well.

Evaluate your training routine and eliminate any exercises that may be pushing you too hard. You can find out about this by checking your pulse when you wake up in the morning.

Volunteer work is a good way to serve the community while getting some much needed exercise. Many physical jobs require volunteers. This will keep you in motion and help you help others.

Try to work out outside when it’s possible. Go hiking, try tennis, or go running on the beach. The possibilities are really endless. You will have less stress and think more clearly outdoors.

If you want to improve your putting, try to aim approximately 17 inches past the hole for straight-on putts. The 17-inch radius around the cup is less likely to have been trampled by feet. The grass is also a little thicker which has the effect of slowing your ball a bit.
