TIP OF THE WEEK: IMPORTANCE OF STRETCHING Proper warm up and stretching are key factors to prevent injury when exercising. A 5-minute warm-up of light aerobics (even walking) followed by stretching before starting any exercise routine will help to prevent injuries while working out. Stretches can be done to work big muscle groups or individual muscles and should be held 15-30 seconds and repeated 3 times per stretch. It is also important to finish exercising with a 5-minute cool-down and stretching to allow your body to slowly return to a resting state and prevent muscle cramping. Enjoy your week and work our safe!
TIP OF THE WEEK: STAYING HYDRATED Drinking fluids that contain electrolytes an hour before, during, and after vigorous activites help to keep your body properly hydrated. Drinking plenty of water daily is important to keep your body in balance. Replacing juice, soda, or coffee with water can also lower sugar and caffeine intake.
TIP OF THE WEEK: Training vs Rest: Rest days are an important part of training to let the body and muscles re-boot. Res days are as essential as training days to ensure safe and effective training.
