3 Questions To Help You Find Your Perfect Workout
Find What Fits Your Life
With all the class types on Handstand, it can get overwhelming. Even in a world where variety is king, we all have different with schedules, stress levels, activity levels, likes and dislikes. And while working out should be fun, what if the exercise you choose is far from what your body craves?
We all need to create balance in the body. For example, sitting all day long can lead to poor posture, stiffness, and a compressed spine. And standing all day long can lead to swelling and poor circulation in your lower legs. Why not choose a workout that'll counteract any problematic physical effects you built up over the day?
Read below and find out how!
1. Do you sit all day?
Desk jockeys probably choose biking as their go-to form of cardio. But why sit again? Choose movement that requires you to stand and be upright. For example, a Tone Up Legs & Core session, Circuits & Intervals, Strength Training, or Cardio Dance Fit. All of these are weight-bearing and will work your posture muscles (after you crunched and slouched in your seat all day). Try to hold yourself up nice and tall throughout your spine as you do these forms of cardio so that you can create space in your joints.
2. Do you stand all day?
Choose Circuits & Intervals, Power Yoga, or Swimming for your cardio training. Both of these will increase the circulation in your legs and help you flush out any swelling from a long day on your feet. It's also very beneficial to elevate your legs at the end of your day (for example, with Legs up the Wall) to help decrease swelling.
3. Does your job require you to be walking around most of the day?
Good news for waiters, real estate agents, and anyone else always on the move: You have essentially done a light level of cardio all day long. Look to do a workout that helps you stretch out and decompress your body, such as yoga - slow flow or power flow!
