New Years' Resolution Work Out Tips
- If you are inactive and have a history of heart trouble, talk to your doctor before you start any new exercise regimens.
- Certainly consider booking an appointment with your chiropractor - having all your spinal motor units working during core exercises.
· Be smart - you will not be able to undo years of poor habits in one work out.
· Think in terms of "Less is More" - like walking instead of running. Opt for lighter weight to ensure full range of movement and proper form. This plan works better because there is less risk of injury or tissue damage with the activity. Pain can ultimately become a deterrent from continuing with a program.
· Go in with a plan - don't wander aimlessly from one area of the body to the other. Split up your work outs for the upper body (arms and shoulders) one day and then your (lower body) legs and back on an alternating day. This allows healing time and prevents injury from overstress.
· When you are working on one muscle group - try to isolate just to that muscle group - if you can't, you are using too much weight (demonstration with biceps curl)
· If you can hire a trainer for each and every work out that's terrific, if you are on a budget, it's still very valuable to hire someone to help set up a program and work with you until you are comfortable and consistent with the program.
