Exercises for teenagers

Exercises for teenagers are more important then ever. Teens should get sixty minutes of moderate exercise each day. Moderate exercise can be brisk walk, aerobics, hiking, bike riding, swimming on other similar model of exercise. Exercise helps use oxygen. It helps your body to burn stored fat and help you maintain a normal weight. For example, if you walk four minutes a day, four times a week you can burn about 1600 calories or nearly half a pound a week. If you don’t change your diet at all and keep walking the same distance over six months, you will lose 12 pounds. Walk the same distance for a year and you will drop 24 pounds.

The great thing about exercises for teenagers is, you don’t have to do it at one time. After all not many teens have time to walk for miles because of their study and other related activity. But they wish they can make small time for exercise. We are giving some tips on exercise so that they can do some exercise in their limited period of time.
