An Average Man Should, And Needs To Exercise

An average man should, and needs, to exercise at least three times a week for a minimum of 30 minutes.  As I have said before, we have many options when it comes to exercise.  In my opinion, if you have the time and especially if you’re retired, you should do some exercise everyday.

Whatever Fitness has meant to you in the past, and no matter where you are now, every one looks at it differently.  To some it brings on the cringe of pain, of doing something they simply hate, and even something they will avoid at all cost, but that’s not necessary.  Fitness and exercise should be fun, doing something that is enjoyable.  Maybe you just want to maintain the level of fitness you have, […] Read more »
