The New Year often marks the time for making health resolutions – including heading to the gym. While working to get in shape and improve your health is an excellent goal, it can also lead to injuries that can sideline your efforts. Discussing how to safely start an exercise routine is a great place to start before you step back into the gym.
Dr. Dan, Angela and guest-host Riley explain the importance of starting slowly and meeting your body where it is, rather than jumping into intense workouts if you’ve been inactive. The goal is avoiding injury and burnout while still challenging yourself appropriately. They share examples from their experience and warn against comparing yourself to elite athletes who have access to unlimited time and resources for recovery. If you’re getting ready to hit the gym, this is a must-listen.
