Get Fit with MyOmega™!

Ahhhhh, yes. The clouds are parting, the temperatures are rising, and the days are growing longer. This can only mean one thing… Bathing suit season is on its way. So just how are you supposed to get a beach-ready body after a sluggish, sedentary winter? Ease into it. Here are some tips on how to get the most out of your workout.

Beach-Ready?

Beach-Ready?

1. Exercise regularly, but remember to GRADUALLY increase the difficulty of your routine. If you have a low activity level, start with 1-3 times a week. If you have a a moderate activity level, try kicking it up to 3-5 days a week. Most importantly, don’t overdo it. So many injuries can be avoided if we just listen to our bodies. While the inviting Spring weather may be beckoning you to run more miles than your body is accustomed to, you run the risk of stress fractures, pulled muscles and tendinitis, which can set you back to square one.

2. For most of us, exercise is just not enough. If you’re not willing to give up your favorite foods, here’s an easy way to cut down on calories without too much suffering. Watch your portions. This seems obvious, but most of the time we eat far more than our body actually requires. That’s because your brain does not register that you are “full” until 10 minutes after you have already exceeded your limit. Try taking a 10 minute break halfway between eating to see if you are still hungry. Don’t torture yourself by staring at your plate the whole time. Take this time to tidy up your kitchen, do some reading or call up a friend. It will occupy your mind and before you know it, your 10 minutes will be up. If you are still hungry after this time, eat a little more, and take another break. You’d be surprised on how easily you can satisfy your appetite with a little patience (and distraction).

3. Once you feel it’s time to bump up your mileage or add more weight to your routine, prepare for the inevitable muscle soreness and tightness. For some of us it can be unbearable, and we end up having to take such long breaks that we eventually plateau. The best way to help manage the normal pain that accompanies exercise is to try a topical analgesic like MyOmega™ Targeted Pain Relief Spray. This powerful, cooling formula relieves the pain associated with strains, sprains, muscle aches, cramps and tension. Simply spray directly onto painful areas for an invigorating burst of pain relief and you may just find yourself finishing that extra mile, swimming that extra lap, biking that extra stretch, or increasing your reps without the overwhelming obstacle of common soreness. As long as you remember to stay within your bodies realistic boundaries, MyOmega™ may just become your favorite new exercise companion
