Product Details
It’s not quite that simple, although most things you will read will tell you that any form of physical activity is helpful. There is a lot of truth to it. Physical activity at any age is beneficial and for women during midlife exercising carries additional substantial health benefits. The menopausal transition is associated with many health risk factors such as the increased risk for cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, decreased bone mineral density, metabolic syndrome, and musculoskeletal symptoms. Exercise prescriptions for those health risks are the same as for non-menopausal women.
However, according to my research, not all forms of physical activity are of equal benefit in helping with menopause symptoms. In fact, some forms of exercise can exacerbate certain types of symptoms such as hot flashes and insomnia.
I believe that it is important to pick the type of exercise depending on your symptoms rather than just exercise to exercise.
So how do you know which exercise is best for you? Download my, "A Quick Guide to Menopause-Specific Workouts".
