Exercise, in conjunction with a clinically designed strength and conditioning program by your physio is the surest way to achieve positive long term health results.
Long term results of a good strength and conditioning program can extend living a life full of vitality and health, along with a decreased risk factor for osteoporosis, muscle loss and disease.
A strength and conditioning program is designed to ensure you maintain muscle strength, tone and flexibility – especially during winter when you’re less inclined to get out and exercise.
What’s wrong with having a break from exercise?
Think back to a time when you had a break from exercise. When you returned, were you fatiguing more quickly than before? Perhaps you sustained muscle soreness and stiffness after completing the same activities you used to be able to complete regularly and frequently. Maybe you even got injured…?
During periods of downtime in exercise, there is always a risk when you return to activity. It’s important to make sure you have a plan for your return to exercise to minimise injuries and associated pain.
The older you get, the more at risk you are, so a fundamental approach to exercise at any time of life should be to engage your physio and design a individualised strength and conditioning program.
Even if you’re fit and injury free, set yourself up now, for a healthy life in the only body you’ll ever get.
Get back on track sooner
Getting injured can set you back a long way. The healing and recovery process for someone who is already strong and healthy tends to be much faster than someone who isn’t. This applies to mental health too. Studies show that exercise and movement nourish the brain and have a positive impact on mental wellbeing.
Planning and preparing now with the right exercise program is your best insurance against both physical and mental injuries.
