Long ago in the eras of our distant past, people really didn’t need to exercise all that much at any given point in time. A big part of the reason why that is the case has to do with the fact that they ended up getting a good workout just through things like hunting, foraging or farming, but suffice it to say that these are not things that you can hope to accomplish whilst living a modern lifestyle. A really popular way for people to stay fit and continue working sedentary office jobs is by lifting weights at a gym in some way, shape or form.
Weight lifting offers a myriad of advantages including improving the size and strength of your muscles, and it also helps improve things like bone density and the durability of your tendons and ligaments. That said, many who want to try their hand at weight lifting for the very first time find themselves getting injured out of the blue. Warming up for your workout session with a class at Marianne Wells Yoga School can help reduce the likelihood of such an unfortunate occurrence.
Performing some yoga prior to lifting heavy dumbbells or barbells at a gym improves blood flow. Working out cold muscles can make it almost inevitable that you would sustain an injury such as a muscle tear or a worn out tendon or ligament, and these are the kinds of things that can put you out of commission for weeks. That can result in you losing all of your gains, so it’s best to preempt such eventualities with yoga that a trained yoga teacher can tell you all about at Marianne Wells.
