Which Workout Will Help You Meet Your Goals? SWEAT SMART With hot yoga, barre, Pilates, weightlifting, kickboxing, and more, personal fitness companies offer every workout you need to stay in shape. But sometimes, having dozens of choices can be more anxiety-inducing than having just a few. When it comes to finding the right workout to help you reach your goal, whether it’s weight loss, better balance, or more muscle, it’s best to seek advice from the experts.
The Best MEE
Back braces have been out of vogue for a while, and many clinicians now believe they cause more harm than good. Studies have shown that leaving a back brace on for too long can cause the abdominal muscles to atrophy, and enough patients overuse their braces that it has tipped the prevailing wisdom away from them. Still, according to the Southeastern Spine Institute and Ambulatory Surgery Center, about 50% of Americans are afflicted with back pain every year, and 85% will deal with it at some point in their lives. Faced with such a steep statistic and since traditional back braces are tabled, what is a conscientious chiropractor to do?
Drop It Like a Pound When it comes to weight loss, full-body workouts, like swimming, running, and cycling, are the most effective. "The more muscles you have to incorporate, the more calories you're going to burn because those muscles all require energy in order to work," Nike Master Trainer Holly Rilinger told SELF magazine. Regardless of the activity you choose, Rilinger recommends interval training as the best method. By combining bursts of intense effort with periods of active rest, you can keep your heart rate jumping and those calories burning. Wax On, Wax Off The words “balance” and “workout” are generally associated with yoga, and while it’s true that yogis are champions of standing on one foot, so are martial artists. According to an article published by the martial arts academy chain Evolve MMA, “Martial arts works out the entire body, from the base, to the upper torso, to the all-important core ... Practicing martial arts will improve your balance, which then, of course, improves the quality of your life.” By incorporating martial arts and yoga into your workout regimen, you’ll be able to perform impressive party tricks and stay on your feet if you lose your balance.
Well, that’s where the BaxMAX Back Brace comes to the rescue. The BaxMAX is one of our bestselling back- support products, and it accomplishes two unique things. First, instead of using elastic, like a typical back brace, it uses a five-pulley system to cinch tight, functioning much like a compound bow. That means it offers patients five times the compression with much less effort. Second, while it attaches in front like a normal brace, the patient only needs to reach to one side in order to tighten it and create compression. That makes it easy to tighten the brace in intervals, interrupting 45 minutes of
Do You Even Lift, Bro? For building muscle and increasing your strength, nothing beats weightlifting, whether you’re using dumbbells at home or machines at the gym. Lifting weights also helps burn fat. Speaking with SELF, Rilinger called the practice "the mother of all weight loss techniques, the highest in the workout food chain, the top of the totem pole.” Of course, the most important thing to consider when choosing a workout is whether you enjoy it enough to squeeze it into your schedule. If you resent every drop of sweat, it will undoubtedly take you longer to reach your goal than if you look forward to the challenge.
