Weight Vest Training Tips

Training with a weight vest is a great way to build new strength and speed, not to mention power past a plateau.

However, there are good and bad ways to train with a weight vest, which Scorca Chiropractic goes over below.

Add to Your Body Weight Workouts

Pull-ups, push-ups, body squats, and other exercises that use your body weight are all complimented with a weight vest. You’ll find yourself doing higher repetitions and feeling stronger on a daily basis.

If You Run, Do Short Intervals

Try not to run for long periods of time with your weight vest, which will put a considerable amount of wear and tear on your body, mess with your body’s sense of balance and equilibrium, and could end up giving you back pain.

Try Not to Wear for Too Long

When you wear a weight vest for long periods of time, your sense of balance will start to recalibrate, which will seriously mess up your coordination and mobility when you take off your weight vest.

Chiropractic as an Ongoing Wellness Protocol

Some people question the efficacy of chiropractic because patients often have to come to see the chiropractor multiple times in order to recover from a specific injury or condition. The best way to think about chiropractic treatment is as a tool that you can use throughout your life to recalibrate your body, brain, and to decompress the body from the daily grind.

Why would you want to limit the number of times you experience just how good a chiropractic adjustment feels? Just like getting a massage, getting a chiropractic treatment is an amazing way to end a hectic workweek, not to mention an active fitness schedule.

When we treat our injured patients we can usually get a good idea of how many treatments will be necessary to get the results you’re looking for, but we encourage all of our patients to come and see us a couple of times a year for a body and brain reboot.

3 Bad Habits Holding You Back in 2020

When it comes down to it, excellence is a habit, or, at the very least, we are what we do habitually. Habits are the behaviors we engage in each day whether we’re aware of it or not. We all have a few bad habits that might be holding us back in multiple areas of our lives, which is why it’s important to target negative behaviors and try to counteract them. Below, Scorca Chiropractic goes over 3 bad habits that may be holding you back and what to do about it.

1.) You’re Not Eating Clean Enough

Eat clean whole foods as often as you can. If you ever have a choice to make between having junk or skipping a meal until you can eat something healthier, go with the latter. Start looking at the food you eat as fuel for your body and brain.

2.) You’re Not Hydrating Enough

More than half the population walks around each day with some level of dehydration, which can disrupt overall physical and mental performance, not to mention put you in a crankier mood. Drink half your body weight in ounces of water for health benefits you have to experience to believe.

3.) Self-Destructive Habits

Smoking, alcohol consumption, and recreational drug use are all behaviors that do not have your best interests in mind on multiple levels. Try to stop engaging in these habits to gain new health and wellness.

Chiropractic treatment is a great habit to make in 2020, which will provide you with drug-free pain relief, improved range of motion, improved sleep and mood, and much, much more. Contact Scorca Chiropractic today to schedule your consultation.
