My schedule is quite demanding and makes it difficult to find time to exercise.
Q. Dear Terry, “My schedule is quite demanding and makes it difficult to find time to exercise. I have noticed I am not as toned as I used to be. What do you recommend?” — Shaun O., Boston, MA
A. Dear Shaun, 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 kettle bells for several years and find it works well with my schedule and lifestyle. If you are unfamiliar with kettle bells, you can watch my video on the kettle bell swing on YouTube. There are plenty of other great kettle bell videos and demos on the internet as well. Short-burst exercises, like kettle bells, 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. Hopefully you will find some valuable tools in the webinar that you can implement 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, bromelain, and pancreatin. 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. These ingredients are best taken on an empty stomach so the enzymes can have systemic benefits, rather than digesting food.
