You don't need balls, mats and elastic bands to get a great workout. Dr. Oz says there are only four exercises that you'll ever need to know--and none require fancy machinery!

1)First, Dr. Oz suggests that people walk emoticon for at least 30 minutes each and every day. "Walking is the foundation for all other exercises because it increases your stamina and prepares your body for strength training," he says. You should strive to walk 10,000 steps a day. emoticon

2)The second step is to build muscle by lifting weights for 30 minutes a week emoticon . You can lift a dumbbell emoticon, a gallon emoticon of milk or your toddler emoticon ...just start lifting!

3)Now that you're on the right track, Dr. Oz says you have to work up a sweat for about an hour emoticon a week. "The number one predictor of how long you're going to live is how well you can exercise your heart," he says. "If you can push yourself to sweat for an hour a week, that's great. You can break it down into three little segments of 20 minutes emoticon emoticon emoticoneach."

4)Finally, you have to stretch emoticon so that you don't get hurt. Dr. Oz likes to do yoga emoticon , but he says you can get the same benefits from stretches you learned in high school gym class.

5)There's one secret fat-burner that you can do anywhere--fidgeting! emoticon Most of the one million calories you consume every year are burned without you ever thinking about it. Only 15 to 30 percent of calories are burned through intentional physical activity, so minor additions like being fidgety helps keep off the pounds! www.doctoroz.com/videos/
