We decided to start a new life on Monday – to run and go to the gym? Before you buy a subscription or sneakers, go to the doctor – there are illnesses in which a medical worker is placed on fitness.

Fortunately, there are not so many common contraindications to physical exertion: borderline mental states, mental disorders and epilepsy, organic heart lesions, malignant tumors, severe spinal trauma, recent craniocerebral trauma, heart attack and some others. In this case, doctors give good only to physiotherapy exercises, and that is not always the case.

It is understandable – rhythmic, fun, interesting. Ways of lifting and convergence from the platform – a few dozen: until you learn everything …

And for the figure – a solid benefit. In a short time, you can drive extra pounds, improve the shape of the legs, buttocks and thighs.

With such problems it is necessary to forget not only about belly dance, but also about Latin, strip-dance, body-ballet.

Aqua aerobics
Water fitness – an absolute hit in women of all ages. One session on effectiveness is equal to three trainings “on land”: you can lose about 700 calories – the body spends extra energy in order to keep warm.

In addition, it is one of the most sparing sports – there is no gravity in the water. That is why aqua aerobics is shown to people with diseases of the joints, spine, cardiovascular system and even pregnant women (special training is provided for them).

However, it is not recommended for women with gynecological problems (hypothermia can cause exacerbation) and dermatological diseases: psoriasis, eczema, depriving.

The author of this technique is Joseph Pilates, an American of German descent. He came up with his own method of healing, which helps improve posture, metabolism, the work of internal organs, learn how to breathe properly and relieve nervous tension.

People with hypertension, angina pectoris and heart failure should not be engaged in power simulators, lift the bar and perform isometric (static) exercises. If you hold the muscle for a long time in tension, blood pressure, an attack of angina pectoris and a heart rhythm can rise. But on cardiovascular equipment (treadmills, bicycles), you can do it – they are just designed to train the cardiovascular system.

Take into account only your level of preparedness – carry out stress tests with a cardiologist or specialist in functional diagnostics. It will determine the level of loads available to you and the so-called safe pulse zone. Usually it is 75-80% of the level at which there is pain in the heart, dizziness and other unpleasant symptoms. At training, they felt unwell: there was shortness of breath, heartbeat pulse? Reduce the load or rest.
