5 Steps to a Successful Workout

5 Steps to a Successful Workout
  1. Perform a Warm-up for at Least 10 Minutes
    Prior to starting any physical exercise a total body warm-up should be implemented. The warm-up should consist of large muscle dynamic type movements such as jumping jacks, jumping rope, brisk walking or riding a bike.
  2. Do Light Stretching Prior to Exercising
    By stretching for a few moments before your actual workout, this may reduce the possibility of injury(strains/sprains), as well as, ready the muscles for any load bearing exercises they encounter. Remember your goal is not to obtain flexibility, but injury prevention. Stretch major muscles for approx 30 seconds.
  3. Have a Great Workout
    Regardless of your type of workout(cardiovascular/weight training), it should be safe, challenging and fun. Please contact Capstone Pain for additional information regarding a specific exercise program custom fit to your needs.
  4. Cool down is a must
    It is always a good idea to perform a 5-10 minute cool down. This will again serve as injury prevention, as well as, help alleviate muscle soreness.
  5. Moderate Stretching for Flexibility
    This portion of flexibility should be a little more strenuous that the previous stretching but it should never feel difficult. Proper stretching can help prevent major muscle and back injuries. Stretch all major muscle groups for a minimum of 1 minute for 2 sets. Remember don’t bounce, stretch and hold, and don’t forget to relax.
