| Taking an Exercise Break
| Exercise breaks happen. Sometimes we schedule a week-long break - for example, at the end of a 12-week training cycle. At other times life intervenes, and our exercise intentions go out the window.
We want exercising to be a lifelong commitment, something we've taken on for the long term. This is distinct from the binge exerciser, who periodically "wants to get in shape", struggles for a month or two, and then quits.
If we're in it for the long haul, we can withstand a break here and there, even a prolonged month-long break if necessary. We've built a strong base. Our bodies are trained. Our muscular functions are optimized for performance. So, while we don't really want to take a break, we're prepared physically to get back in shape quickly.
Bottom line - if you need to take a holiday break from exercising, go ahead. If you're a regular exerciser, you can take a week or two off secure in the knowledge that you won't have lost that much. You'll recover quickly and possibly even recover to a higher level of fitness.
I'm a young and fairly active woman. I started having a pain in my hip area and thought it was a pinched nerve or something. This went on about once a month for about four months. The pain was getting stronger every time this would happen. The last time it happened the pain was so bad it put me into tears! I didn't want to go to a doc in the box because I figured they would just prescribe me pain pills and not fix the problem... whatever that would be. My Office Manager suggested that I go to Dr.Klena. She and the staff here at my new job all used him. Idaho Chiropractic got me in first thing in the morning and took good care of me. Come to find out it was from a previous car accident and when I had started playing golf four months earlier I was just irritating that hip and inflamed some tissue in that joint. Dr.Klena made a complete plan for me that included adjustments, ultra sounds, stretching and strengthening on top of a payment plan! I'm fixed and so grateful that they could do it without medicating me.
Thank you Dr.Klena and Staff!
