That irritating niggle at the base of your spine. That dull ache after a core workout. That urge to stretch and contort your back to get relief. Having lower back pain can be a pain in the… back, especially when it’s stopping your usual exercise routine or punishing you after working up a sweat!
We all know the drill - we get a burst of motivation to begin a new fitness regime. We may set stupidly high expectations and goals for ourselves, or work ourselves to the bone to try get immediate results… but before we know it, we’re hurting and disappointed by the lack of change.
So you’ve heard lots about yoga right? Of course you have… but there is more to gain from yoga than you might think. Aside from improving your flexibility and developing the ability to relax deeply, there are many surprising benefits of yoga, particularly in a physiological way.
The world’s most successful people are just like you and I… except they may have tweaked their mindsets to approach tasks, challenges and obstacles in a new way to boost creativity and efficiency.
Who else find themselves flagging at their desks come 3pm? Call it the post-lunch coma, the afternoon slump, the doomsday hour…. Whatever you call it, it can be so frustrating when you still need to use your brain but caffeine refuses to have any affect!
Hands up if you’ve ever felt lethargic and rundown, struggling with your exercise routines? It could be down to your diet and how you’re fuelling your body. We all want to ensure we have the best nutrition to optimise our performance and help us along our fitness journey.
Summer holidays are in… but does that mean your fitness is out? Jumping on a plane is pretty darn exciting, but as you fly away from your home and routines, it could also mean bidding a farewell to your fitness routines.
Hands up if you’re guilty for spending too much time on social media? We all scroll through Instagram and Facebook, lapping up content on a daily basis. But are you keeping up-to-date with the right kind of influences? Do they keep you inspired? Do you feel motivated by what they share?
Yeow - it’s a scorcher, eh? Summer is treating us oh so well, but with hot long days where barbecues and beer gardens reign supreme, it can be a battle to keep to your fitness routines. Especially if it’s so hot, you can barely bear the thought of being enveloped in lycra.
