What To Do About health and fitness Before It’s Too Late
Snag Some Supplements
Using a supplement can be very beneficial but only if you’re pushing yourself to the absolute limit. The harder you work, the more beneficial supplements will be. Never use them as a crutch, or as a substitute for working out.
Give Your Abs a Break
While you might be tempted to overwork your abs in the hopes of getting a six pack, your abs are like any other muscle; they need a break. Don’t work your abs out more than 2-3 times per week.
Aid your Recovery
If you’ve had a muscle injury, it’s important to ease yourself into exercising ASAP. Be sure to speak with a professional about when you can start working out again, and once you’ve had the green light, don’t hesitate. If you experience pain, stop immediately, and ice the area.
Zoom in on the Summit
When you run uphill, make sure you focus on the top of the hill. Keep your head up to aid in breathing!
Learn to Breathe
When you run, make sure you are breathing from your gut, and that your stomach is rising on the inhale. Doing this ensures your lungs are filled with oxygen, so you’re able to work out for longer periods.
Reduce Neck Strain
One nifty trick to reduce neck strains from crunches involves placing your tongue on the roof of your mouth while you do them. This reduces strain by facilitating head alignment.
