New Year, New You
The new year seems to motivate people more than any other event to lose weight, enhance their physique, and start a healthier diet. We understand the desire and we are truly happy for you, especially since exercise is a key factor in gaining health and happiness.
However, we also know that with a new exercise regimen comes a heightened threat of injury. Therefore, routine stretching, with sufficient warm-up and wind-down intervals, is necessary for remaining healthy while exercising. We use a variety of techniques to get your body flexible and ready for your new exercise undertaking.
Stretches and Exercise From Our Chiropractor
A great place to start with exercising should involve one or more of the following activities:
- Improve your range-of-motion
- Balance and coordination
- General conditioning
Many kinds of exercise can improve your muscle stability. When a muscle is unstable, activity against gravity is sufficient. However, as the muscle gains strength, resistance slowly increases by utilizing flexible bands or weights. This type of workout allows both the strength and size of the muscle to increase and ultimately improve endurance.
Beginner Exercises and Stretches
Once you have visited us to work out your muscles and are prepared for your exercise routine throughout the year, we recommend that you take baby steps before launching into an intense workout program. Here are some simple stretches that you can do to remain agile as you get into your new exercise program. Quadriceps, hamstring, calf, hip flexor shoulder, and triceps stretching are great ways to keep your body from becoming tense.
