Flexibility exercise is one of the four types of exercise along with strength, balance and endurance. Ideally, all four types of exercise would be included in a healthy workout routine and AHA provides easy-to-follow guidelines for endurance and strength-training in its Recommendations for Physical Activity in Adults.
They don’t all need to be done every day, but variety helps keep the body fit and healthy, and makes exercise interesting. You can do a variety of exercises to keep your physical activity routine exciting. Many different types of exercises can improve strength, endurance, flexibility, and balance. For example, practicing yoga can improve your balance, strength, and flexibility. A lot of lower-body strength-training exercises also will improve your balance.
Flexibility exercises stretch your muscles and can help your body stay flexible. These exercises may not improve your endurance or strength, but being flexible gives you more freedom of movement for other exercise
The knee is the largest joint in the body. People use it heavily every day as they walk, run, climb, or jump. As a result, it is also very prone to injury and pain. When these occur, a doctor may recommend exercises to help a person strengthen the muscles around the knee.
People of all ages may experience knee pain. According to
While it may be tempting to avoid exercise when knee pain occurs, this is not always the appropriate solution. Certain types of exercise can help alleviate existing knee pain and prevent future pain or injury by providing the knee with extra support.
Strong glutes are more than just about aesthetics. Building muscle in your hips, glutes and quads improves your stability and power as a runner, as well as in other sports. This improves your performance and reduces your risk of injury.

Great starting exercise – the Bridge will not only work your glutes but also
Let’s get straight to the point: you can exercise at home – and get a good workout in – using your bodyweight or simple pieces of kit such as dumbbells, kettlebells or a suspension trainer. Even as you grow stronger and fitter, by increasing your reps, or simply slowing down – or speeding up – the tempo of your exercises (which is easier said than done btw), you can progress your workouts and the effectiveness of them.
We know what you are thinking – bodyweight workouts can’t build muscle. Well, they can. A recent study looked at the effectiveness of the press-up as a muscle-building tool. Published in Journal of Exercise Science & Fitness, over the course of an 8-week training period, the researchers found that, when compared with a similar load to 40%1RM (rep max) bench press, the press-up was as effective for muscle hypertrophy and strength gain.

Why Is Physical Activity Important?
Exercise and physical activity are good for just about everyone, including older adults. No matter your health and physical abilities, you can gain a lot by staying active. In fact, studies show that “taking it easy” is risky. Often, inactivity is more to blame than age when older people lose the ability to do things on their own. Lack of physical activity also can lead to more visits to the doctor, more hospitalizations, and more use of medicines for a variety of illnesses.
Including all 4 types of exercise can benefit a wide range of areas of your life. Staying active can help you:
- Keep and improve your strength so you can stay independent
- Have more energy to do the things you want to do and reduce fatigue
- Improve your balance and lower risk of falls and injuries from falls
- Manage and

What are Dental Veneers?
veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.
Types of Dental Veneers
Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers. They also better mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth. You will need to discuss the best choice of veneer material for you with your dentist.
What Types of Problems Do Dental Veneers Fix?
Veneers are routinely used to fix:
Teeth that are discolored because of:
Teeth that are worn down
Dental offices deal with a high volume of patient information—both clinical and administrative. The dentists and office managers we talk to most often are looking for ways to improve access to that information, and for better efficiency in documenting and managing it.
Watch the video below to see dental software functions and benefits in action.
As you just saw, dental software is designed to streamline the workflows of dental practices to help improve not only efficiency, but also patient care. Common applications and modules of dental software include:
- Electronic Health Records (EHR)
- Digital sensor/imaging
- Electronic claims
- Recall system/reminders
- Staff scheduling
We’ve created this guide to help prospective dental software buyers better understand the benefits dental solutions can offer. Here’s what we’ll cover:
