| Taking an Exercise Break
| Exercise breaks happen. Sometimes we schedule a week-long break - for example, at the end of a 12-week training cycle. At other times life intervenes, and our exercise intentions go out the window.
We want exercising to be a lifelong commitment, something we've taken on for the long term. This is distinct from the binge exerciser, who periodically "wants to get in shape", struggles for a month or two, and then quits.
If we're in it for the long haul, we can withstand a break here and there, even a prolonged month-long break if necessary. We've built a strong base. Our bodies are trained. Our muscular functions are optimized for performance. So, while we don't really want to take a break, we're prepared physically to get back in shape quickly.
Bottom line - if you need to take a holiday break from exercising, go ahead. If you're a regular exerciser, you can take a week or two off secure in the knowledge that you won't have lost that much. You'll recover quickly and possibly even recover to a higher level of fitness.
I started to go to Precision Chiropractic and Massage in 2014 for the Ideal Protein program, had a great experience and reached my goal. Then I returned to them a few months ago for massage services, reasonable pricing, both Sharon and Tami are GREAT! Then I started seeing Dr. Schweitzer and Dr. Bennett for my neck, shoulder and back problems, and felt much better just after a few adjustments. Now I take my mom there too for adjustments. I've always had a great experience there, love the front desk ladies! I suggest you go check them out!
