Physical Exercise: According to Ayurveda

 Physical Exercise: According to Ayurveda , regular exercise of the body is essential for everyone. Sharira Cheshta Ya Cheshta Sthairyartha Balavardhini | Deha Vyayama Sankhyata Matraya Tam Samacareta ||

Meaning: The movements (and postures) of body aimed at stabilizing and strengthening it constitute what is known as "Physical Exercise". As food is essential for sustenance of life , so is physical exercise vital for its health . A (mechanical) clock doesn’t work without periodical winding. Similarly the body can’t function properly without any physical exercise. Regular physical exercise is like the nectar-milk of Kamadhenu (a heavenly cow referred in mythological scriptures) for good health .
