“Physical exercise is important for maintaining physical fitness and can contribute to maintaining a healthy weight, regulating the digestive system, building and maintaining healthy bone density, muscle strength, and joint mobility, promoting physiological well-being, reducing surgical risks, and strengthening the immune system. Some studies indicate that exercise may increase life expectancy and the overall quality of life. People who participate in moderate to high levels of physical exercise have a lower mortality rate compared to individuals who by comparison are not physically active. Moderate levels of exercise have been correlated with preventing aging by reducing inflammatory potential. A lack of physical activity causes approximately 6% of the burden of disease from coronary heart disease, 7% of type 2 diabetes, 10% of breast cancer and 10% of colon cancer worldwide. Overall, physical inactivity causes 9% of premature mortality worldwide.” – Wikipedia
It is no secret that being physically active is essential to living a healthy and balanced life, and Jamaican nurse and fitness enthusiast Cav has dedicated her time and resources to sharing simple and effective methods for you to be on top of your game. A fresh channel with three uploads so far, this initiative was born out of the need for people to stay fit while being under quarantine/curfew conditions. With repetition, one can expect to see the results they seek, right in the comfort of their own home; and since she is a registered healthcare professional, you can be assured that her judgement can be trusted.
The first video starts with a 20-minute workout that includes 60 seconds of “Jumping Jacks”, 60 seconds of jogging, 60 seconds of Jump Core Twists, 60 seconds of Cross Toe Touches, 60 seconds of Cross Toe Touches (Leg Lifts), 40 seconds of Diagonal Reaches with weights (a filled 5-litre water bottle), 60 seconds of Light Core Rotation (with a mop stick), 60 seconds of Knee-to-Chest Lifts, 40 seconds of Jump Squats, and a repetition of each for as long as you can manage. Each exercise should have a 1-minute cooldown session in-between so as not to exert too much energy.
The second video is a fifteen-minute workout geared towards erasing tummy and side fat. The exercises include Cross Toe Touches, Belt Kicks, Jump-Rope Core Twists, C-Sit Position Leg/Knee Lifts, C-Sit Position Core Twists, C-Sit Position ‘A’ Frame Crunches, and Low Plank Hip Twists – each with forty-five to sixty-second recovery times in-between.
She also has a ten-minute ab workout session, inclusive of Plank Positions, Leg Reaches, Core Twists in C-Sit Position, and a bonus round of 40 Lounge Climbers.
She encourages you to rest as much as you need to, and to keep pushing your limit so that you can make the most of each workout session. It is important to remember that if fitness isn’t a part of your daily regime, then it might take effort to start but you will grow into the habit overtime. The goal is not to rush the process, but to be comfortable as you grow into and love your own body.
