Well, transforming yourself starts from within, so get up, do simple stretches and start walking 30 minutes a day. Do it four times in a week. Then afterwards, if you feel you are ready for a challenge, you can combine jog and walk until you can run 1 or 2 kilometers without stopping. That is what gradual fitness is all about. You start with the basic or the easy phase then when your body is tuned up, you can do more exercises which is one level up of your routine.

Hydration Key

Compounds such as potassium, magnesium, sodium and calcium flows in and out of the muscle area, which is carried out by the body’s fluid comprising of water. If this has been compromised, they will produce very weak contraction meaning, cramps are on its way.
