Regular exercise is great activity that just about everyone should be doing. It helps you get stronger, leaner, and healthier. Also, it is especially important for those of you who have diabetes. Any kind of workout that makes you active can lower your blood sugar and blood pressure, as well as boost your energy. Here are some possible workouts we recommend for you to try:
Strength Training can help lower your blood sugar and make you stronger. This workout strengthens both your muscles and bones, for an overall healthier you. You can do strength training with either our CanDo® Dumbbells or our CanDo® MGE® Exerciser. Use them to do curls, push-ups, squats and lunges. You will get the most out of strength training if you do it twice a week, in addition to some aerobic activity.
Speaking of aerobic activity, using an exercise bike can help with that. Using a stationary bike, like the Spirit Indoor Cycle Trainer, 30 minutes a day can get your heart rate up, burn blood sugar, and help you lose weight. The Spirit bike is both durable and sturdy enough to withstand hard use without hurting your knees or other joints. It is also extremely comfortable, so you might be on there for more than 30 minutes out of pure enjoyment.
