In this Spanish lesson we are going to learn some useful Spanish vocabulary related to health & fitness and the body such as Hombros (shoulders), Músculos (muscles) and Gemelos (calves). In the next lesson we will continue this theme and look at useful Spanish verbs such as Levantar (to lift), Estirar (to stretch) and Respirar (to breathe). When learning Spanish it is essential to have a good balance of grammar, vocabulary, verbs and expressions and I will do my best to give you this throughout my Spanish course. Try not to flood yourself with more than ten or fifteen new Spanish words or verbs per day. Concentrate on trying to remember a few Spanish words and verbs well every day. With Spanish vocabulary and verbs related to health & fitness and the body I recommend that you draw out the basic shape of a body and then see if you can label all of the body parts and verbs related to certain areas. Keep practising until you remember them all and then start writing out example sentences using the key Spanish grammar structures that you have already learned.
