On January 1st, many of us resolved to live a healthier lifestyle in the upcoming year. Although there are good intentions behind this resolution, changing and maintaining daily habits can be overwhelming.
It is important to keep in mind, however, that living a healthier lifestyle doesn’t mean changing your entire routine in one fell swoop. By modifying small things in your daily life, you will be taking big steps toward fulfilling your 2017 health goals.
In the fourth week of January we are revisiting the Wide Legged Straddle Stretch, but this time we are performing it in the prone position (or face down). This position provides a slightly different way to stretch the inner thigh.
Beginning a new strength training routine can seem overwhelming, especially when deciding what movements to incorporate.
Searching for a new job can be a long and grueling process. In addition to spending hours researching companies and applying to job postings online, job seekers oftentimes have to pass a phone interview before even meeting with a hiring manager.
Between 20 to 93 percent of runners suffer from knee pain, making it the most common lower extremity injury.2 When knee pain occurs, one of the treatment options is physical therapy. Physical therapists are trained to examine, diagnose and treat knee pain to help patients return to the activities they love.
For the third week of January we will be performing an inner thigh stretch called the Reclined Cobbler’s Stretch.
After taking time to set your S.M.A.R.T. goals, it is time to use these goals to get F.I.T.T.
F.I.T.T. is an acronym that was created to address many of the important questions people have about exercise programs. This principle can be applied directly to strength training. Using the F.I.T.T. principle in combination with S.M.A.R.T goals is a great way to cultivate confidence, generate accountability to goals and improve your physical prowess!
Basketball is a popular sport amongst youth athletes, but the duration of the season in combination with the athleticism required by players can lead to injury.
We are still targeting the inner thighs for January’s second weekly stretch. This week’s stretch is called the Wide Legged Straddle with wall assist.
A New Year can be unpredictable, but setting authentic goals combined with genuine pursuit can usher in the kinds of change and inspiration you are seeking. If becoming stronger and more confident are goals you have in mind, this post has tips to make it happen!
