A follow up to yesterday’s post: The book I am testing, Exercise for Mood and Anxiety, is very good at handling the psychology of exercise, but makes no mention of specific exercises you should do. I approve of picking one thing and focusing on it, but I think depressed people in particular would benefit from not having to do the extra work of choosing between the infinite variety of exercise programs. I would like to be able to recommend a few things not as the Objectively Best Exercises, but as reasonable defaults if choosing is too hard.
Does anyone have an exercise program they would recommend, with documentation I could investigate? One example would be Body By Science, which details the science behind super slow weight training. It overstates its claims, but it provides enough information that I can determine that relatively easily.
