Luck O' The Irish - March Fitness Challenge
Looking for a change in your fitness routine, or to start one? AJM's #fitfriday challenge for March 2019 is the Luck O' The Irish Fitness Calendar just for you.
The Fitness Challenge consists of three different workouts focusing on endurance, upper body, and lower body strength. As the month progress, the time and number of repetitions for each exercise gradually increases. There is a built-in rest day every fourth day. Each rest day includes an additional challenge (if your up to it).
AJM Associates challenges those to get up and get healthy this March by participating in the fitness challenge. Everyone's fitness level varies. Therefore, the guidelines on the calendar are not set in stone. If the calendar proves to be difficult with some of exercises, modify each of the exercises and/or repetitions and times appropriately. For examples, if you don't have a jump rope, you can jump with an "imaginary" jump rope. This will still allow you to reap the healthy benefits of continuously jumping for the given amount of time.
Exercise strengthens your heart and improves your circulation. The increased blood flow raises the oxygen levels in your body. This helps lower your risk of heart diseases such as high cholesterol, coronary artery disease, and heart attack. Regular exercise can also lower your blood pressure and triglyceride.
Whether or not your insurance company or employer offers wellness incentives, you can lower your insurance premiums on your own just by living a healthy life. A steady exercise regimen and healthy diet can impact all of the factors that determine your cost of insurance.
