It is very important to exercise. Exercise is important because it can keep you in shape and will improve your health for the better. Many studies have shown that regular activities and exercise can improve overall health substantially. Exercise reduces the risk of heart disease, stroke, certain cancers, and high blood pressure.

In weight training most people will work different muscle groups on different days in order to best work their body without over doing it. This also saves time during the day because instead of working out for 3-5 hours in one day you can workout for an hour a day 3-5 days a week. It spreads out the exercise so you don't get sick of it and dread going. Also, your body will respond better because you will not be putting too much stress on yourself. It is also wise to stretch before any physical activity. This is very important so that you do not pull or strain any muscles. Most importantly, to maintain a healthy body you must stay active. I currently workout four days a week. On Monday I train my chest and triceps. Tuesday I train my back and biceps. Wednesday I don’t train but will be incorporating some cardio on that day. Thursday I train my shoulders and trapezius muscles, and Friday I train my legs and abdominal muscles. I’ve been doing my own training program with exercises that I feel are helpful...
