In the past few days I've heard people make comments about exercise that surprised me. Actually, they didn't really surprise me, but made me think about the different views on exercise. Even though I bodybuild, and train a lot, my views of exercise are not skewed in the sense that people have to train hours on end to by physically fit and healthy.
If you're just beginning any sort of exercise or running program, you'll need to choose the proper shoes for your journey. Sneakers, which are the best choice for working out and running, are difficult to choose since each have a snazzy outer shell. Bright colors or cool options are not what is important, though. You may want your shoes to look good, but the most important aspect is that they fit your feet properly and offer you the most support.
Whether you are new or a seasoned runner, there are injuries that can occur. Several types of injuries can effect different areas of your body and will determine if you need to take a break from running.
While there are droves of injuries that can happen, some stand out as the most common. Lower leg, skin, bone and ligamanet damage are caused by the repetitive nature of running and have a tendency to take place with casual to athletic runners.
During my leg workout I noticed I was clenching my teeth. I had a heavy load on the lying leg curl machine. I never realized that I did this, and was concerned about the damage caused from clenching and grinding my teeth during exercise. Do you clench your teeth, also?
Do your legs hurt and ache from varicose veins? Is it made worse by standing on your feet all day? Reduce your varicose vein pain with a few simple exercises at the end of the day.
I visited a massage therapist for the first time in several years. During the massage, the therapist and I noticed my arms flopped wildly whenever she massaged my pectoral muscles. Although this did not surprise the massage therapist I was shocked. My arms were flopping uncontrollably on the table and I just knew something was wrong with me.
If you're anything like me cardiovascular conditioning might be one of your least favorite activities. Instead of walking-it-out on the treadmill I've decided to break away from the gym equipment, and use the numerous aerobic exercises available.
