Since 2020 began, we’ve been spending a lot of time talking about self-care and natural ways you can improve your health–even by snacking! But we haven’t given much thought to the exercise and wellness trends that are all over social media. So, let’s move past the fads and get on with results with these wellness trends!
Thanks to the growing trend of CrossFit and OrangeTheory Fitness, strength training is no longer just for bodybuilders. With more influencers talking about gainz and less about weight loss, there is a growing trend of Americans hitting the weight room.
But what is strength training? According to Women’s Health, “ strength training (a.k.a. resistance training) involves using your own body weight or tools, like dumbbells or resistance bands, to build muscle mass, strength, and endurance.”
Not only will strength training put your muscles to work in a way they may not typically, but it also has proven health results. Resistance training promotes stronger bones, builds muscle while decreasing fat, and in some studies, has proven to decrease depression symptoms.
We know post-workout recovery is important–but how many of us are actually doing it?
A growing trend that has scientific results is foam rolling. Foam rolling is a type of self-myofascial release that can reduce muscle tightness and soreness, and decrease inflammation while increasing your range of motion in your joints.
Studies are coming out suggesting that chronic pelvic pain may even be reduced through foam rolling. If you have not used foam rolling tactics in the past, be sure to start slowly to avoid the risk of hyper-extending your limbs.
Understanding Chronic Conditions
Many of us are body-conscious in 2020–which is great news! We at Gladiator Therapeutics understand that so many of our chronic conditions are related to circulation–or, result in poor circulation. By having an understanding of what is happening inside of our bodies, we have the power to make positive changes.
How else can you create balanced wellness in your life? Say good-bye to chronic pain, and say hello to sweet relief with Gladiator Therapeutics Far Infrared technology!
