Weight Loss to Lose Back Pain: How Does it Work

Weight Loss to Lose Back Pain: How Does it Work?

Does losing weight help reduce back pain? In this article we’ll be exploring how these two seemingly unrelated factors come into play when looking at your overall health. 

Benefits of Low-Impact Aerobic Exercises

There are conflicting opinions about the impact of low-impact aerobic exercises. Truthfully, it doesn’t get much love because, well, doing high-intensity plyometric exercises look cooler-- until the back and joints complain and injuries come.

If you have body pains or mobility problems, high-impact cardio exercises can be jarring. But don’t let those stop you from working out! You can choose from a variety of modified workouts so you can still stay active and loosen any body stiffness.

 

Sweat it out

Remember it’s just low impact but not less-intensity! You can still get an intense workout that is kinder to your aching body. Here are some examples that you can do at home or your garden if you are still afraid to go to the gym because of the virus:

 

  1. Do brisk walking -- If you don’t want to go out, you can always do brisk walking around the house of your garden. Time your walking to 10 minutes non-stop, take a break, and start again. Use ankle weights for more challenge.
  2. Swimming -- This is optional, but a great workout that is friendly to the joints. If you do not have a pool at home -- you can inquire if your community pool is open and make sure that they follow protocols. This BBC article explains why swimming is safe during the pandemic.
  3. Hop on your stationary bicycle -- You can go spinning all by yourself or through a Zoom session. An indoor bike is great because it provides back support in different positions. Now if you are a multitasker-- we have good news for you!  Some newer models allow

Tips and strategies to start a cardio exercise with jogging

Jogging is one of the best exercises that you can get into. It helps in weight loss, it develops muscles, and it's great for the heart. You really can't go wrong with jogging.

If you plan on adding jogging to your exercise routine, or if you just want to start jogging casually, there are a few questions you'll probably need to answer. The first is how you start, the second is how you pace yourself, and the third is what goals would you want to achieve with the exercise.

The great news is that we have the answers to the first two questions right here. The answer to the third one is entirely up to you.

How Do You Start?

You're probably thinking, oh jogging is easy. All I need are some running shoes, and I'm right on my way. Well, you're correct. You do need running shoes, but you'd be seriously wrong if you assume that that's all you need.

So what do you need? First off, yes, the running shoes. If you're a city dweller, you'll probably spend a lot of time pounding the pavement. To deal with that, you'll need to invest in good running shoes. These shoes will not only reduce discomfort, but they'll also stop you from getting seriously injured.

Your clothing is perhaps just as important as your running shoes. When dressing up, you should go for comfort. Look for comfortable clothes that can absorb sweat easily. In winter, you should try running with several layers of clothes. That way, when things start warming up, you'll be able to pull off a layer.  Also, you need to make sure that most of what you're wearing is lightweight. You definitely don't want anything, or anyone, weighing you down.

When running, it's important that you track your progress to see just how well you're doing. Done correctly, your progress can be a great motivator on those days when you're feeling down and unmotivated. That's why I always recommend using tech when running. There are so many apps like Garmin and F

Using Proper Lifting Technique to Avoid Back Injury

Back pain is a complex condition that continues to pose a significant health burden on individuals, employers, and society as a whole, despite a range of interventions that have been developed to reduce its impact. In fact, it has been estimated that up to 80% of the population will experience back pain at some point during their lifetime, and up to one thirdof the population suffers from some type of back discomfort at any given time. Not only does back pain interfere with daily routines, recreational activities, and work productivity, it’s also one of the most common reasons that people seek medical attention.  

Causes of Back Pain

While some cases of back pain develop gradually over time due to issues such as poor posture, repetitive strain, or uncomfortable working positions, many cases develop after a specific incident, such as bending or lifting awkwardly, or lifting a heavy weight. Therefore, one of the best ways to prevent back injury is to use proper lifting technique, especially when lifting heavy objects.  

Proper Lifting Technique

Many people believe that they know how to lift correctly, and are surprised when they suffer a back injury when performing a simple lift. It’s therefore important to review proper lifting techniques from time to time to avoid injury. To begin, before you attempt a lift, you should check your surroundings to ensure that it’s safe to begin your lift. There should be a clear path for you to carry the object, and make sure that you know exactly where you are going to put the object down. Additionally, avoid walking on uneven or slippery surfaces when you are lifting or carrying an object as this only increases yo

How a Sedentary Lifestyle Affects Your Health

From an evolutionary (and survival) standpoint, the invention of technology took us very quickly from an active “moving” species to a population that sits an average of 13 hours per day.  Add sleeping hours to that and it leaves very few hours, or even minutes, to be active. Inactivity is making us chronically sick and putting a huge burden on our health care system. It’s unfortunately a very sad reality of the world today.
