Well to be honest I've never really exercised much, other than this last summer cycling to get to places. I broke my wrist last year and ankle this year, and didn't get physiotherapy for either so I'd like to do some exercises to help them if possible. my wrist has been playing up a lot recently, especially if I knit even if I only do a few lines once in a while.
Also I'd like to know some exercises I can do in my flat over winter, as it gets really snowy here so I won't be able to cycle or get out as much (No complaints, I love snow). I'm kinda lazy and give up pretty quick if I can't figure out how to do something. I'm not looking to get all muscly or anything, i'm pretty skinny but I'd like to tone up a little and perhaps be able to carry the 15kg bags of cat litter home without pulling a muscle in my back as has happened the last few times (Thankfully its good stuff and lasts a long time).
So really what I'm asking is, are there any good starter exercises and things? I'm a total beginner. Do any of you maybe know of some inspiring YouTube workout shows or anything perhaps?
Finally, I am on my second day of paleo eating, after having attempted it disastrously before. My reason for going paleo is I want more energy, grains made me super tired all the time (Hopefully the reason I am lazy haha, so that now I can get rid of laziness!). Is there any exercises to help me build up my energy a bit? Perhaps something to wake me up in the morning a bit?
I realise this whole section of the forum is about exercises, but it seems like everyone is really advanced and knows all the terms and things, I don't know the individual names of my muscles and I don't really know what makes an exercise cardio and what makes it the other thing. I could do with a Dummys Guide to healthy exercise & keeping fit haha.
