FITNESS IS HAVING SUPPLENSESS, STRENGTH AND STAMINA

 

Suppleness is being able to bend, stretch. Twist and turn through a full range of movement. You need it all the time for awkward jobs around the house, getting in and out of cars, and even getting on to buses and train. If you are supple. You are less likely to get injured and you will be able to stay more active as you get older.

Strength is being able to exert force-for pushing, pulling and lifting. You need strength all the time to move around, carry shopping, climb upstairs, and take stubborn tops off bottles. It protects you from sprains and strains. A strong back and tummy will help give you good posture too.

Stamina is being able to keep going, when running or walking briskly, without getting tired and puffed very quickly. Stamina is useful when you are in a hurry to get somewhere, or when you need to keep up with your children. Exercising for stamina helps to protect you against heart disease.

 

The best activities for stamina is fairly energetic (more than you are used to), make you slightly out of breath and keep you moving for 20 minutes or more. This type of exercise is often called aerobic exercise because you breathe in enough oxygen to supply your working muscles.
