Using Weights In Workouts
Valdez uses weights at the gym, which not only build muscle but protect bone health. "The bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons in your musculoskeletal system all work together, and they either become stronger together or weaker together," says Dr. Wayne Westcott, professor of exercise science at Quincy College in Massachusetts. "Whenever you lose muscle you automatically lose bone – they go hand in hand."
Valdez incorporates barre workouts into her workout routine. "I mean, who doesn't want to look like a prima ballerina?" says Michele Olson, a professor of exercise physiology at Auburn University, Montgomery. "You're talking about nice, lean muscle tone and perfect posture."
Valdez loves skiing with her family. "Skiing gets you outdoors in the winter when we often end up on the couch and are passive," says physical therapist Scott Tremmel. "We're just not as active when the cold weather sets in, but skiing keeps you moving to continue to build up your endurance."
Valdez understands the benefits of regular meditation, "There are different types of meditation to accomplish different aims, so the best meditation for you will be one that fits your goals," says Deepak Chopra, MD, FACP. "Almost every meditation practice will bring you greater peace and relaxation, so if that is your primary aim, then a simple breath awareness meditation is fine."
Valdez enjoys being outdoors on her bike. "Riding a bike is a low-impact, high-cardio exercise that's inclusive of all fitness levels," says certified personal trainer Sara Fruendt. "Bike riding is also easier on your joints and great for athletes recovering from injuries… Indoor biking allows you to see your markers such as miles, time, and resistance, but requires you to independently change these settings versus outdoors where you ride with the natural terrain and are exposed to different inclines. Both increase cardiovascular fitness, muscle tone, and strength, but outdoor biking focuses more on your core as you are dealing with different terrain versus indoor, which is focused more on the lower-body."
