Core Solutions: Tendinitis & Sports



Strength training is an important part of reaching your peak physical potential, but there are other health and wellness techniques to keep in mind while you’re doing so: 1. Limit your sitting. Get up every 30 minutes and walk around at work and home. Prolonged periods of sitting can cause muscles to stiffen up and become weaker. 2. Get up and move. Exercise regularly, even if it’s just walking for a short time every day. Movingwill help keep your muscles loose and will avoid losing their strength. 3. Nutrition and portion control. Keep your intake of food nutritious, at a comfortable level. Fueling your body with the correct foods will increase your energy andmake it easier to exercise.

4. Drink more water. Water keeps your body systems functioning at their optimum levels. This will also make exercise (and muscle recovery!) much easier. 5. Breathe. Work on your deep breathing techniques to increase oxygen intake and get your lymphatic system moving. 6. Get enough sleep. Sleep at least 8 hours a day. It is best to get into a routine so you go to bed and wake up on a regular cycle. This helps your endocrine system, which controls several aspects of your body. 7. Take care of aches and pains. Don’t let any long-term problems linger. Get professional help at Core Solutions Physiotherapy & Wellness by scheduling an appointment today!
