I’m trying to get a head start on my New Year’s Resolution, which is to exercise more.
Q. Dear Terry, “I’m trying to get a head start on my New Year’s Resolution, which is to exercise more. My strength and stamina are pretty low right now, but I want to get started. I know you have a busy schedule and still find time to exercise. What do you recommend?” – Martina A., Albuquerque, NM
A. Dear Martina, We all know how important exercise is, but finding the time to keep a regular exercise schedule can be difficult. Fortunately, there is a great workout that takes minutes a day and can have great results. I have been exercising with kettlebells for several years and find it works well with my schedule and lifestyle. If you are unfamiliar with kettlebells, you can watch my video on the kettlebell swing on YouTube. There are plenty of other great kettlebell videos and demos on the internet as well. Short-burst exercises, like kettlebells, help strengthen the muscles, and can be done fairly quickly with lasting benefits. I also did a webinar on the benefits of short-burst exercise that is available on the Terry Talks Nutrition YouTube page. I hope you will find some valuable tools in the webinar and you can implement them into your life.
If you are just getting back into an exercise routine and become sore, I would add a combination of curcumin, boswellia, DLPA, and nattokinase. Each of these ingredients help to relieve pain safely and effectively, while also reducing the inflammation that occurs from exercising. I would take these ingredients one to three times daily, or as needed.
