Pumping iron and doing intensive workouts at the gym to build a good physique is not the be all and end all of men’s fitness. Developing a paunch for example is not simply unattractive it can even have serious health implications in the long run.

Without a doubt, staying active and being fit is something that should be an important life goal for each person. There are many factors that men need to understand and take into consideration when working to improve their overall health, stamina and fitness level.

We are here to share with you our pick of the top fitness tips that have been designed especially for men. Take a look.   

Exercise Right

Apart from building core strength, exercising different muscle groups and burning excess calories to stay fit, men should also pay attention to improving their flexibility. Men’s bodies are generally less flexible as compared to women’s so it is important for men to include some stretching exercises that will help relax the muscles.

It is also good to vary your routine. It helps to make your workout fun and keeps you motivated. Explore new ways of exercising. Try alternating your gym routine with playing a sport such as tennis, swimming, cycling, practice yoga, learn martial arts. It is good for your body to mix up activities.

Doing a mix of cardio, endurance and strength training exercises can be effective to work all parts of your body and improve overall fitness. Draw up a weekly or monthly exercise plan and stick to it. Exercising correctly and regularly is key to staying fit.

Be Disciplined About Your Diet

Exercising right is only half the story. To stay fit you should also watch your diet. Eat balanced healthy meals on time, beginning with a good breakfast that will start your day on the right note. Ensure that your body gets its required intake of protein, fibre, vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates and healthy fats. Include fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables, cereals, milk, nuts and whole grains in your diet. This will build muscle and bone strength, increase your energy levels and basically keep you fit so you can take on and fulfil your day’s tasks well and to your optimal potential.

Consciously cut down on salt intake as well as added sugar. Resist the urge to guzzle carbonated sugary drinks and reduce consumption of processed foods. These are simple yet important fitness tips to avoid obesity and developing a belly overhang. 

Quit Smoking

This fitness and health tip calls out all the smokers amongst the men reading this. If you are serious about getting and staying fit, then know that your smoking habit is in direct conflict with your fitness goals. All the good work done by exercising hard and eating in a disciplined manner will be undone when you light up and puff your next cigarette. You seriously need to quit smoking to follow a fitness regime.    

Stay Hydrated

A drop in water or fluid levels in the body can have a short-term and long-term adverse impact on your health and fitness. Staying sufficiently hydrated is important for proper nutrient absorption and improving metabolism. Carry a bottle of water when you are on the go, keep one at your work desk. You need to do whatever it takes to ensure that you watch your daily fluid intake and stay hydrated at regular intervals. Ensure you follow this simple yet crucial fitness tip.

Following this guide and incorporating these fitness tips can definitely help men stay fit, enjoy good health and function more efficiently in their day to day life. Staying fit has immense benefits in the long run and can help you lead a good quality of life in your latter years.

Just as important as focusing on your fitness, is insuring your health so that you are well prepared in case an emergency strikes. Health insurance can protect your finances when it comes to medical expenses. It is advisable to opt for a comprehensive health insurance policy that can give you maximum benefits such as cashless hospitalisation cover at network hospitals, 24x7 call assistance and lifetime renewal. Health insurance can cover your pre and post hospitalisation expenses as well as cover you during critical illness. Compare plans and insurers and purchase a suitable policy online at your convenience. Ensure that you buy a health cover from a reputed health insurance company and secure your own health and of your loved ones.
