#MyPlaylist gets me moving – Charles Brown
Written by Charles Brown II, Area Executive Director of KS, Kansas City, SD, NE, IA, American Diabetes Association®
How do I get my 150 minutes?
I usually get my 150 minutes of physical activity each week by doing plyometric workouts, lifting weights, walking, and push-mowing my grass during the warm months. I like to work out late (usually after my three kids go to bed). I am not a great morning workout person! It must have something to do with being forced to wake up early and workout during my college baseball years!
My top 3 workout songs are:
- B.O.B by Outkast – This is an upbeat track that never lets up and keeps me moving.
- The Bounce by Jay-Z – This is an easy track for lighter days.
- Give it away by Red Hot Chili Peppers – This is a song that has always got me going, even during morning weights training in college.
According to the American Diabetes Association®, the economic burden of diabetes and prediabetes in the United States is over $327 billion in medical costs and lost productivity each year. However, 150 minutes of exercise each week can help reduce your risk for type 2 diabetes.
