It’s funny how this page popped up in my health and fitness research today as I nurse my injured rotator cuff back to health. I may be guilty of #6. Do be aware of these training tips/mistakes to avoid injury and or damage. Which one these would you say you are guilty of? http://www.muscleandfitness.com/news-and-features/galleries/training/7-reasons-your-rotator-cuffs-hate-you
Overall, it was a good health and fitness day today. I completed a good chest, biceps and a little bit of abbs workout. Although, I did have to take it lighter and a little slower today. I felt a slight strain in my right shoulder while I was working out. To me, this is a sign my body is giving me that I have to relax my workout slightly. It’s been a solid ten months or so with regards to vigorous exercising, but now my body is telling me that it needs a relaxing recovery period. It’s important to listen to what the body signals in order to achieve health and fitness goals and to prevent injuries. The shoulder is engaged to one extend or another in almost every upper body workout. When it starts showing signs of fatigue, it’s extremely important to listen. I wouldn’t want to be held back from working out because of an injury. It doesn’t mean that I can’t exercise at all. It just means that I will have to take it slow and workout softer. Hopefully, it will get the rest it needs and recover nicely over the next few days!!
Something a friend of mine posted on Facebook today. I don’t really judge a trainer by the way he or she looks, but this trainer has a lovely reason for becoming a trainer…. #inspiretosweat
These guys take their workout so seriously, it’s almost funny. This page showed up on my social media feed today (I’ve been getting a lot of health and fitness links lately….too much research maybe?) and I just had to share it. I will admit, I did have a pretty good laugh. But I must commend these guys….at least they’re trying!!
WARNING: Don’t try these at home. Well at least try not to get caught on camera!
