These Tips Can Help Prevent Injury While Re-starting Exercise After a Long Haul

As the vaccination drive continues, gyms and other fitness centres are reopening and people are eager to engage in physical activities again. Although, many find it difficult to restart exercise or perform at the same level after a long gap from physical activity. When easing back into a fitness routine after a break, it is important to consult a fitness coach to set realistic goals.

Also, here are some things one should watch while engaging again in fitness routines to prevent injury and get the most out of it.

  • The safest thing to do after a long break in working out is to not hop back into exercising right away. As your body reacts differently each day so it’s important to first analyze your workout, then start slowly and gradually increase the intensity of your workout.
  • Don’t make sudden changes to your eating pattern when getting back into fitness. Slowly make changes in your nutrition patterns over time.
  • In order to prepare your muscles for exercise, do proper stretching, warm-up, and adequate cooldown is required after you finish your workout.
  • Be mindful of your breathing while working out. Practice diaphragmatic breathing, wherein you breathe with your belly instead of your chest.
  • To prevent injury while performing an exercise, pay attention to your body alignment and posture.
  • When reentering, do alternate body parts exercises during your workout to avoid overuse and stress on one particular muscle.
  • Check your repetitions and rather than weightlifting, try to engage in more stability exercises.
  • It’s okay to take a day off from workouts. Your body needs to rest and required at least a day to recover.
  • In order to get active, you don’t necessarily have to join a gym. Find ways to incorporate more activity into your normal day, like taking stairs instead of elevators and lift, going for a walk after dinner.
