Boost Your Performance Naturally With These Helpful Tips

Whether you’re seeking to cycle faster, run farther, have more endurance during your CrossFit workouts or perfect your golf swing, consider sports chiropractic.

Here are five transformative natural tips to boost your performance.

Tip 1: Vary Your Workouts

Doing the same workout each day is downright boring, and it can increase your risk of injury, so consider adding variety to your workouts. Mix things up at least every eight to twelve weeks to keep your body adapting and progressing.

Tip 2: Prioritise Recovery Time

After a workout, give your body a chance to repair and adapt. Exercise creates micro tears in the muscles, helping the body get stronger. So factor in downtime and recovery into your performance programme.

Tip 3: Never Neglect the Brain

Performance is reliant on both the body and the brain. So to ensure your brain is functioning optimally, limit things like alcohol, sugar and man-made fats, and increase things like movement, sleep and interaction.

Tip 4: Regular Chiropractic Visits

Visiting a chiropractor can enhance your performance by boosting your strength. The spine’s alignment and movement can alter the brain’s processing, leading to strength improvements equivalent to almost three weeks of training.

Tip 5: Hydration Is Key

You face an increased risk of fatigue, cramps and dehydration if you don’t drink enough water. Forget the hype of sports drinks; water is all you need for proper hydration.

The Lifesaving 60-Minute Habit

Let’s talk about a simple habit that, when practised for just 60 minutes a week, may reduce your risk of dying from all diseases. It’s weight training. When you lift weights and increase muscle mass, that muscle mass correlates with a decreased risk of all disease causes. It’s important to start slowly. And remember that it’s never too late to start weight training, regardless of your age or activity level.

The Critical Performance Tip for Those Over 40

Here’s a significant training hack for individuals over 40: avoid getting injured. Did you know that most injuries we see at the practice come from poor exercise habits, overtraining, not warming up or adhering to the outdated notion of no pain, no gain? As we age, it’s harder to recover, and it takes longer for the body to heal. So if you’re beginning a new exercise habit, starting slow is critical. Be in it for the long game.

Everyone’s an Athlete

We believe that everyone is an athlete! Did you know that simply seeing yourself as an athlete means that you’re much more likely to motivate yourself to act like one? Our environment plays a massive role in our behaviour. So if you want to see yourself and behave like an athlete, it’s crucial to be in an environment where athletes are. That could mean joining a gym or a running or cycling group or signing up for yoga classes.
