0 – 60: A Bad Idea!
With the New Year upon us, many will rush to renew their commitment to physical fitness, and that is to be commended! Probably the most important factorin natural health is having a regular exercise program.
However, when we allow our physical condition to slide, rededicating and restarting a physical fitness program too quickly and too intensely provides the perfect situation for injury. “Overused muscles can create injury and scar tissue, restricting motion and and causing pain. Pain can derail your journey to fitness success,” says Las Vegas Chiropractor , Dr. Andrew C. Marone.
Whenever renewing your commitment to exercise, avoid expectations of attaining fitness “this week” or even “this month.” Listen to your body. Plod rather than race to fitness. Allow joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments time to adapt to the challenge and they will!
When you are patient (that is why they call you patients), chances are your body will firm, strengthen and stretch as you regain vitality!
This year, no “zero to 60” race to fitness. Avoid start-up injuries which can unnecessarily derail your zest to regain vitality. Find fitness this year, not this week or this month! And don’t forget to eat your spinach!
