The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released their updated version of the guidelines for physical activity earlier this month. This is the first update since the earlier version of the guidelines published in 2008. The study reported many of the health benefits of regular exercise and released the activity recommendations for children and all adults.
Increase your chances of success
It’s common for people to pick certain times to be “energized” about working out and getting healthier (through New Year’s Resolutions or by having vague goals) without having a clear path to do so. However, spending hours working out one day and feeling too exhausted to continue the next day isn’t the most productive way to move towards accomplishing your fitness goals.
We're a big fan of setting new goals (both professional and personal) and coming up with creative ways to achieve them. Here are our three tips for planning and achieving your goals:
Aiming to achieve symmetry between both halves of our body is essential for keeping our body balanced and injury-free. It's good to practice symmetrical movements both during exercise and as we move throughout the day.
Handstands, they're not just for yogis anymore. Handstands are an incredibly effective way to strengthen your entire body, improve your balance and enhance your overall well being.
We believe that everyone can (and should!) be doing daily resistance exercise. Daily strengthening exercise keeps your muscles and joints strong and symmetrical as well as boosts your energy levels and metabolism.
What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is an occupational hazard that has become common as more jobs require day-long computer use. This syndrome can cause wrist pain and numbness in the fingers. Since many exercises, especially those that strengthen the arms, require strong grip strength, having carpal tunnel syndrome can deter people from exercising. The Gravity Ball’s unique design allows the user to do weighted grip-free resistance exercise™ safely and effectively even if you can’t hold weight or have poor grip strength due to carpal tunnel syndrome or another health problem that impacts your grip strength.
