You exercise regularly. You’ve outlined your objectives and you’re sticking to the plan. But you’re still not making any progress. Could you be unintentionally sabotaging your exercise goals?
Missing a few key steps in your exercise routine can mean the difference between success and the same old, same old. Here are three common exercise mistakes and what you can do to fix them.
1 Little or no warm up. This is vital to any exercise routine as it prepares your system to effectively handle an increased workload. Before hitting your workout with high intensity, start with five minutes of light exercise to guarantee your body is primed, including 3-4 dynamic exercises that focus on the muscles and joints you’ll be working.
2 Doing the same workout every day. When it comes to exercise, variety is key. Both cardio and strength play key roles in promoting and maintaining weight loss, preventing chronic disease and maintaining functional abilities. An exercise program that consists of cardiovascular and strength exercises that support the activities you enjoy will help ensure you keep enjoying them for years to come.
3 Skipping out on the cool down. After completing a challenging cardio session, allow yourself five minutes of easy exercise before getting off the treadmill. Include at least three or four static stretches on the areas you worked. Weight training? Stretching helps increase flexibility in areas that are stiff or tight, which helps prevent injuries.
If you have any questions about warm ups, cool downs or incorporating variety into your workouts, don’t hesitate to reach out to your Kinesiologist who can help guide you down the right path!
