With all the large-scale changes of the last year, it’s become more important than ever for individuals to access the mental and physical benefits of a daily exercise routine. Of course, when it comes to exercising, it’s critical to understand what it takes to safely enhance your mobility, coordination, and strength so that you do not overexert and cause undue damage or stress to your body.
With that in mind, here are Vitruvian Wellness Center’s 6 essential steps to achieving a proper workout, time and again.
At the heart of injury prevention is stretching. It is essential as a way to keep joints and muscles limber, loose, and capable of accomplishing what a given exercise requires of them. Stretching should be integrated in an exercise routine both before it begins and after it is finished.
Exercises such as running, jogging, biking, or walking all fall into the cardiovascular category. A well-rounded and wholesome exercise regimen will include these sorts of activities several times a week, as they promote heart and brain health, reduce blood pressure, contribute to lowered cholesterol levels, and much more.
Core exercises develop the muscles that make up your pelvis, lower back, hips, and abdomen. The body’s core is an important component of balance and stability, and maintaining a strong core is key to preventing injuries to the back and other extremities.
Strength training is another essential element to an exercise program. It increases bone density, muscular strength, and tone, and is central to managing or losing weight. Free weights, as well as push-ups, and pull-ups are all strength exercises that can fortify your body against damage.
Balance tends to deteriorate as we age and there are a variety of different exercises that can help fortify the body against falls and fractures. Incorporating them into an exercise regimen is a great way to endure bodily independence as we age.
Proper hydration is important before, during, and after a strong exercise routine. Drinking water or a clean electrolyte formula aids in recovery, helps regulate body temperature, keeps joints lubricated, delivers nutrients to cells, and improves sleep, mood, and stamina.
