Last August 30, 2013, MedCity News posted an article that disproves the old exercise maxim, “no pain, no gain.” In the article, physiologists note that more women have been suffering from injuries due to overdoing their exercise routines. This happens when they ignore pain sensations under the belief that continued exertion will bring them closer to physical fitness.
After all, it’s easy for some women to think that the fancy workout they saw on television or in a magazine will work for them. The truth is that there’s no such thing as a universal and miraculous workout that can instantly burn all fat; exercise must be customized to fit an individual’s body type and preferences. To that end, women will have to visit their local Metrotown gym and consult a fitness director to fine-tune a custom routine that will work for them.
The article also notes that lack of training, poor exercise form, and the absence of a proper warm-up all can lead to injuries. Failure to prevent these leads to time wasted in recuperating, and, thus, time you could have used to achieve your physical fitness goals. By the time you resume, you just might have regained some of the fat you lost.
That’s why women should follow a few tips to avoid getting hurt while working out. They need to learn the basics of exercise such as proper form, stretching, and warming up; they should also learn to rest, especially in between weightlifting exercises. Lastly, ladies shouldn’t rush their workouts and should instead progress through their routines slowly; this gives the body an opportunity to adapt to the exertion.
Of course, getting professional help would be a huge boon, as fitness instructors are there to make sure you’re working out in the safest and most proper way. Joining a helpful Metrotown health club such as She’s Fit! should be able to link women to a licensed fitness instructor. The expert can show exercisers how to do certain workouts, what routines to follow, and even what diet plan to stick to.
Exercising is about getting a fit and toned body (slim is a bonus), not about punishing yourself. Women should be more careful about the workouts they’re getting into. To be on the safe side, they should enroll in a fitness club so that they can receive pointers from a certified fitness instructor.
