Run into summer – not into pain!
September 28, 2017
We’re almost one month into spring – not that you can tell here in Auckland – which means that summer is fast approaching! For a lot of us (and the patients we’ve been seeing), this means dusting off that workout gear and getting ready to hit the gym or the road or wherever you like to work out! Unfortunately, there are always those of us whose bodies don’t initially respond too well to going from bear-like hibernation to regular, and at times challenging (pump class, anyone?), exercise. So we’ve put together some tips to help you get back into exercise safely and effectively and minimise the risk of getting injured in the process!
- Start off slow
- Check your shoes
- Be mindful of previous injuries
- Warm up and cool down!
- Variety is the spice of life
