Nobody likes doing housework over again.
It's true: Dusting seems futile. But that's no reason to let it go. Here are two ways you might be dusting wrong.
Legacy Oaks has a fantastic fitness room for those days you don't want to go to the gym or if you don't want to pay for that gym membership. Here's a short list of recommendations for safer exercise practices to help get you started.
- Don't skip warm up or cool down. All it takes is 5-10 minutes and gets you ready for a great workout.
- Start an exercise program slowly and boost your activity level gradually.
- Training too hard or too often can cause overuse injuries. A mix of different kinds of activities and sufficient rest is safer.
- Listen to your body. Hold off on exercise when you're sick or feeling very fatigued.
- Drink plenty of water.
- Never sacrifice good form by hurrying to finish reps or sets, or struggling to lift heavier weights.
