  • How to Protect Your Shoulder from Injury

    When you hear about exercise, you automatically think about its advantages. Exercise is associated with improved physical fitness, positive mental health, and even a direct correlation with overall life satisfaction.

    All these salient benefits, however, often overshadow the ironic yet very real fact that people also risk injury when participating in physical exercise. This is not to scare anyone away from the amazing benefits of exercise, as the rewards far outweigh the risk; however, having a working knowledge of the potential risk is also an important factor to minimizing and mitigating injury while exercising.

  • Quick HIIT Bodyweight Routines

    We know that a home gym is not always realistic for everyone. Maybe you're not in a space yet that has the room, or maybe you just prefer paying for a monthly gym membership to swap sweat with everyone at a gym. (Too far?) Whatever the reason may be, what is certain is that sometimes there is just not enough time for either. HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) might be your solution.

    To preface this post, have you seen our blog on the benefit of just 10 minutes of exercise a day? It's true! We're not making that up. While the guidelines recommend that adults get a minimum of 150 minutes (2 hours and 30 min) of aerobic activity a week, these do not have to be consecutive hours of exercise. Gone are the days of one hour workout sessions, for now, we have HIIT! HIIT helps get all the heart-pounding benefits of cardio, without the extra time. Don't forget, the guidelines also include 2 or more days of strength training. HIIT can help you there too, both using body weight and/or equipment. Keep reading for some quick routines to start (or end) your day right!  Continue reading
