A complete sport that makes different muscle groups work by varying the swims. It involves cardio and the whole body. Be careful not to swim only the breaststroke with the head out of the water (“my style”) because this position accentuates the chamber at the level of the lower back and cups the cervicals.
In general, this sport is only done with the weight of the body or with nice little accessories (like a swiss ball). These disciplines vary in intensity and combine relaxation and muscle building. The emphasis is on harmonizing the musculature, with particular attention to the “center”, that is to say, the abdominals and the pelvic floor. No big muscles, but a sculpted, slender body.
Salsa, classical dance, jazz, and many others, the dances are many and each can find its own style. Whether you like the rigor of classical dance or the sensuality of salsa, dance works the whole body harmoniously. Latin and oriental dances are good for abdominals because they are the obliques that will help you stir your ass Shakira way. The classical dance will strengthen your posture, flexibility and you will gain a high head port.
It is a new sport in fashion in recent years. Adopted by many stars, he may, however, frighten some with his “contortionist” side, which we tend to lend him.

Nordic, well supported, or quieter, whatever, walk as you feel. Excellent for the cardiovascular system, walking involves the muscles of the legs of course, but also, the glutes and this disciple has a beneficial effect on the posture … and therefore the back and the abs. That is why it is important to watch your position when walking.Try to walk 30, 45 minutes, or more if the heart tells you, but don’t forget that most people walk too little … and that he wants to walk 15 minutes every day better than not dare to go out because we don’t have time to do an hour.
Just like walking, running is a fairly complete discipline. Some caveats: running can be a bit traumatic for the joints and perineum. It is therefore important to learn to run well if one tends to “attack” the ground with heels, for example. Watch out, the race is jamming the back chain: back of the legs, buttocks, back, etc. So make sure to do a few full stretching sessions outside of your outings.
To practice with friends or family, roller skating is not only a very pleasant sport but also excellent for strengthening legs and abs. It requires coordination of movements and reminds us of our childhood. All good!
