When you’re in the weight room, it’s important to maximize your time in there to experience maximum benefits. Below Holmes Chiropractic goes over a few ways you can get more out of yourself and your workouts.
Stop Sacrificing Form
Weight lifting form should never be overlooked during your workouts — form is more important than lifting the actual weight. Keep your back straight and concentrate on the muscle groups you’re supposed to be working.
Work Your Useful Muscles
Stop being overly obsessed with chest and biceps. Instead, work your legs and your core. Work your back out as well to build a solid foundation for your wellness.
Stay On Top of Your Nutrition
How, what, and when you eat are of paramount importance when you’re training. Eat clean, whole foods and avoid processed carbs and sugar.
Switch It Up
Switching up your workouts will shock the body and keep you engaged in your workouts. If you can find a way to learn a new skill — such as with Dance, Muay Thai, MMA, Jui Jitsu, etc. — during your training, all the better!
If you experience pain as a byproduct of your active lifestyle, chiropractic care is the perfect antidote. Contact Holmes Chiropractic to schedule your consultation today.
