You Don’t Need a Gym to Exercise

    Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on You Don’t Need a Gym to Exercise

There is nothing better than walking out of the gym completely beat but happy because you know you just had an amazing workout.  The next couple of days your legs may hurt as you sit down at your desk or your arms and chest my burn as you are trying to wash your hair in the shower.  That 48 hour ache and burn after a good workout is welcomed by most people. However, as much as staying active is important you have to smart about how much you push your body. If constantly hit the weight room and perform the same routine day-in and day-out more than likely you may injure yourself. Now most of you should know that injuries are part of keeping an active lifestyle. And when an injury occurs do you know what to do?

One great way to maintain your active lifestyle while injured is to incorporate swimming into your routine. Hell you do not even have to be injured to incorporate this amazing exercise. Swimming is an excellent way to maintain that active lifestyle without putting undo stress on your joints. Water exercises can be laps in the pool, water aerobics, or just walking in the pool. So the next time that you feel like you are in a rut, are injured or maybe a combination of both look at jumping in the pool and burning those calories.  Consult your chiropractor Chandler AZ for more information on the subject.

The Benefits of Riding Bikes

    Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on The Benefits of Riding Bikes

I recently sold my car and haven’t found one I want to buy yet.  Since I don’t have a car, I’ve been riding my bicycle quite a bit.  Of course I’m not making too long of trips, but I’m taking the bike to the store and I’ve been riding it to work which is only a few miles away.  It’s actually been pretty nice now that it’s spring time and I can enjoy the weather and the outdoors.  When I first started riding around it had been a while since I had ridden any kind of distance on my bike and I got worn out pretty quickly.  My legs would burn and I could hardly breathe when I tried to go fast.

Now, less than a week later I can tell my legs are getting stronger and I can go farther without running out of breath.  I knew riding bikes was good exercise, which is probably the reason I avoided it for so long!  What I didn’t realize is that it’s not torture.  It’s a great way to keep in shape and get outside more.  I think I’m going to take my time before getting another car.  I know I need one eventually, but for now I’ll continue to enjoy the exercise and openness of the bike.  You can find out more about the benefits of this and other types of exercise by contacting my chiropractor Chandler AZ for information.
