Reducing Chronic Neck Pain

Uncategorized Sep 21, 2022

Chronic neck pain is an extremely common issue we see here, especially in people that work at a desk job.

To fix it, there are a few steps that should be taken.

1. Stay cogniscent of your posture. Looking at your phone or computer with a rounded back and neck will cause nothing but problems. A simple fix is to keep your shoulders back and keep your screen level with your eyes to stay in a neutral position. Posture correction is the best way to decrease pain immediately and can improve circulation, increase energy, ease breathing, improve mood, and otherwise boost your daily wellbeing.

2. Keep moving. Many problems arise from a sedentary lifestyle, the most common being tightness. Taking 5-10 minutes every hour or couple hours just to stand up and move, shaking your arms/legs out and doing some simple mobility movements will go a long ways towards limiting tightness.

3. Stretch. The best times of day to stretch are in the morning before you start your day, and at the end of the day...

The Fat Loss Mindset

Uncategorized Sep 19, 2022

Perfection isn't sustainable. 

This is a truth that many of us have had to learn the hard way, mostly from failing multiple diets again and again.

The real way to take the weight off (but more importantly, lower our body fat) for good is progress, not perfection. If we improve our habits by just a small amount each day, in time it will add up. 

Look at it this way. If you haven't ran in ten years and decide to run a marathon, you woudn't start day one by trying to do the full marathon. If you did, it's almost guaranteed you would fail and probably injure yourself. Instead, you would start just by running for 5 minutes. Then 1 mile, increasing to 3, 5, 10, and so on until you've built up enough endurance and strength to complete that full marathon. The same can be said about nutrition.

Take it slow, be better than you were yesterday, and before you know it you'll be seeing awesome results and feeling proud of what you accomplished.

Rotator Cuff Protocol

Uncategorized Sep 17, 2022

Injuries affecting the rotator cuff can be frustrating and leave you feeling unable to do anything.
To get yourself back to 100%, it's important to follow a proper protocol.

Step 1 - avoid movements that may cause further injury. Overhead movements or side raises can cause pressure and pinching at the injury site. This causes pain, but can also cause further injury and at the very least will hamper recovery.

Step 2 - mobilize around the injury site. Most likely, your muscles and joints will be very tight. While important initially after injury for stabilizing the affected area, after a certain amount of time that tightness will decrease your range of motion, hamper recovery, and cause further pain.

Step 3 - strengthen. Pre-injury, odds are you had some sort of weakness at or near the area. This is definitely true post-injury. Doing exercises (like external rotations or front raises) will strengthen the area surrounding the injury site. This will help by decreasing your reliance...

Exercise + Sleep: A Winning Combination

Uncategorized Sep 16, 2022

You can exercise all you want, but if you won't see any progress if you don't give your body proper time to recover.
Your body uses sleep as an opportunity to rebuild the muscles you have broken down through exercise, so making sure you get enough is crucial to success!

If you're an adult, it's recommended you get a minimum of 7 hours of sleep/night. Depending on the intensity of your workout program and your daily life, you may find that you need closer to 8+.

Not only does sleep give your body a chance to recover and rebuild, it will also give your mind some time to relax and take a break to reload for the next day.

Sleep, good or bad, can have a domino effect on the rest of your week. Not only in your workout routine, but in your daily life as well.

Getting the proper amount of sleep on a consistent basis will both accelerate your progress towards your fitness goals and ensure you can keep a consistent mood and energy level throughout the day.

Besides, who doesn't love a good...

Sugar Addiction: The Perpetual Cycle

Uncategorized Sep 02, 2022

One of the reasons sugar is so hard to give up for many people is that, when consumed, it triggers the "reward circuit" of the brain. This circuit is the main physiological factor that contributes to addiction. While breaking this cycle may be difficult, it really is one of the most effective habits you can change to positively impact your health. By limiting or eliminating sugar intake you'll decrease blood pressure and inflammation while also leveling out energy levels and losing weight easier.
