Do you want to see major enhancements during your next workout? If you tire easily while running or weight training, it is time to evaluate your workout and change your behaviors. Use these five simple adjustments you can make to your workout to enhance your athletic performance.
Visit a physical therapist if you have muscular aches and pains that are causing you to avoid exercise. Dry needling allows a physical therapist to locate the source of pain and to provide relief within minutes through correct treatment.
Hydrate correctly before, during, and after a workout. If you are already thirsty, you are dehydrated. Since you are moving during a workout, use a cup or bottle with a silicone valve dispensing closure to prevent leaks or spills. Drinking the appropriate amount of water will prevent your muscles from becoming fatigued. It can help to enhance your athletic performance during and after a workout.
How can you improve your workout? Start with behavioral changes. If you are diligent about going to the gym, determine what behaviors you have that are halting your performance. Perhaps you find yourself drinking soda, eating poorly, or sleep deprived. Set small goals to change behaviors that can impair your body’s ability to remain healthy.
Check Your Posture
A great way to enhance your workout is to keep your body properly aligned. Sit and stand up straight to keep the muscles in the right position. Far too often people slouch when they stand and sit, causing the muscles and bones to shift. Posture can impact your performance during a workout or when you are playing sports.
To enhance your athletic performance, focus on healthy eating. Filling your body with healthy fruits and vegetables will provide more energy than a can of soda! Opt for foods that fuel the muscles correctly, and provide you with the stamina you need to perform correctly.
