Find out what you can do to help prevent the backlash of being a Weekend Warrior.
Hot Fun in the Summer Time! Summer is upon us! While it’s important to enjoy your fun in the sun (while it lasts), it is also important to remember not to overdo it. Most of us work hard, and when the weekend rolls around, we play even harder. Even fun activities can take a toll on our bodies.
Remember, muscle strength is necessary for all activities of daily living. At school, at home or at play, we need adequate muscle strength for walking, biking, jumping, running, etc. Both large and small muscles need to be strengthened and exercised.
Before jumping into any exercise routine, it’s a good idea to consult a health care professional about what’s best for you and your body. Work with these experts to discuss your fitness goals and develop a balanced workout program.
Let them know if you are training for a specific sport or if you have an old injury you could aggravate. Talk about any dietary considerations to enhance your fitness, and what types of cross training (or varying activities) they would recommend.
Keep in mind that a whopping 1.2 million Canadians are sidelined YEARLY for sports related injuries… Don’t become a statistic!
