Weight loss: 4 action steps

So what are you waiting for??

Ideally, you’ll want to strive for a varied and well-rounded fitness program that incorporates different types of exercise and multiple muscle groups.

Avoid Sitting for More Than 15 Minutes. Try setting a timer for 15 minutes while sitting, and then stand up and do one-legged squats, jump squats or lunges when the timer goes off.

High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT): alternate short bursts of high-intensity exercise with gentle recovery periods.

Core Exercises: Your body has 29 core muscles located mostly in your back, abdomen, and pelvis. This group of muscles provides the foundation for movement throughout your entire body, and strengthening them can help protect and support your back, make your spine and body less prone to injury and help you gain greater balance and stability.  Also, a strong core will help hold your chiropractic adjustments longer!

Stretching: all of your body as part of a warm-up and cool-down for your workout.  Don’t forget those hamstrings, because tightness is one of leading culprits of back pain.  Foam roller anyone?

Strength Training: Rounding out your exercise program with a one-set strength training routine will ensure that you’re really optimizing the possible health benefits of a regular exercise program.
