We all think that exercise is a good thing, we all know that we need to do it. It really boils down to how much do you do and when do you do it. You ask a local athletic Therapist to help you .My consistency over time has been is that I believe in that we should be working out on a regular basis. My normal workout is anywhere between 30 and 45 minutes, and it’s anywhere between five and six days a week. Often seeing a local family physician or a physiotherapist in conjunction with a registered dietitian and athletic therapist is a great option to take control of this condition. Smart Food Now and exercise is also optimal for overall health.
What I’ve learned about the body over 35 years is that in any given month we can go through a cycle of having lots of energy to having very little energy. We can go through a cycle of having lots of energy to having very little energy, and what my consistency has been over time is starting to recognize those simple patterns. I call them waves, I might have a wave of energy for anywhere between six and ten days, and then I’ll go down to a phase of three to four days where I have no energy. But what I’ve learned over time is that if I’m consistent and I listen to the body, my consistency becomes much greater. Presenter: Mr. Jackson Sayers, Kinesiologist, Vancouver, BC
The whole concept of flexibility today is evolving. What we generally thought of as being right 10 years ago is now probably wrong. I started stretching when I was 13 and being close to 50 now I can say that I’ve probably learned a little bit about stretching.
In the late 90s I had a flexibility business where 10 hours a day all I did was stretch people, and I came to the conclusion very, very quickly that a tight muscle – in order for it to change – it wasn’t going to necessarily change through stretching.
What it was going to change through was getting stronger. The concept that a tight muscle is actually a weak muscle became even more relevant to me. So while I stretch every day, what I focus on now is somewhat different than what I did 20 years ago.
What I focus on now is almost doing a small isometric when I’m stretching. It’s taking that very tight, sore part of the muscle and it’s injecting a little bit of strength into it; it’s contracting it. It’s almost like protecting it in a sense, so that we don’t rip it or tear it while doing a stretch. So what we’re going to focus on is flexibility component in this library. What we’re going to be thinking about is not so much are we going to pull a muscle or are we going to do that on a repeatable basis every day. We’re going to think about how can we get that muscle stronger. Presenter: Mr. Jackson Sayers, Kinesiologist, Vancouver, BC
