Daily body exercise is good for the health of humans. Exercises are very important for body fitness. There are many types of exercises. some can be focused on certain parts of the body, such as waist, arms and abdomen.

Meaning of Body Exercise

Exercise is the act of making the body perform some activities. Because the human body is designed for movement, it needs regular exercise.

  2. It makes the muscles strong, firm and healthy. That is, it improves muscle tone.
  3. It makes the sweat glands of the skin more active. This results in the production of more sweat with waste materials.
  4. It helps the body to excrete wastes.
  5. It helps the whole body to keep feet and healthy.
  6. Exercise stimulates the appetite.
  7. Exercises aid digestion and prevent constipation.
  8. It helps to release build up tension.
  9. The flow of energy to the body is increased.
  10. Blood pressure can stay within the normal range.


The different types of Body Exercise

1. STRENGTHENING EXERCISES: These help to build strong muscles. The muscle strength is measured by the amount of work your muscle can do at one time. Examples; weight lifting, push up, sit up.

2. AEROBIC EXERCISES: These are exercises that improve the efficiency of your heart and lungs. They increase the intake of oxygen into the body. Examples; walking, running, swimming.

Health is an overall state of well being. Good health depends on many conditions such as good feeding habits, hygiene, safety practices, exercises, rest and sleep. As individuals work and exercise, they get tired. this means they become fatigued and need rest and sleep.


Rest is the act of relaxing either by sitting or lying down. during rest the mind and muscles are relaxed but you are still awake and aware or conscious of what is happening around you, for instance, still hear sounds.


Sleep is a complete or deeper form of rest. During sleep, you become unaware or unconscious of what is happening around you. At the same time, the body and brain become complete rest.

  7. Getting enough sleep and rest makes you look and feel better.
  8. It also gives you the energy you need during the day.
  9. When people do not sleep, their ability to concentrate reduces and their physical coordination suffers.
