| Taking an Exercise Break
| Exercise breaks happen. Sometimes we schedule a week-long break - for example, at the end of a 12-week training cycle. At other times life intervenes, and our exercise intentions go out the window.
We want exercising to be a lifelong commitment, something we've taken on for the long term. This is distinct from the binge exerciser, who periodically "wants to get in shape", struggles for a month or two, and then quits.
If we're in it for the long haul, we can withstand a break here and there, even a prolonged month-long break if necessary. We've built a strong base. Our bodies are trained. Our muscular functions are optimized for performance. So, while we don't really want to take a break, we're prepared physically to get back in shape quickly.
Bottom line - if you need to take a holiday break from exercising, go ahead. If you're a regular exerciser, you can take a week or two off secure in the knowledge that you won't have lost that much. You'll recover quickly and possibly even recover to a higher level of fitness.
"I have had back problems and had 2 surgeries and wanting a 3rd. Dr. Day provided a multidisciplinary plan that included chiropractic therapies and pain management. Pain management provided some immediate relief but I had residual pain in my right leg. Steroid injections failed. Dr Day recommended decompression table therapy and from the 1st session my leg pain was relieved. I continue with the decompression table therapy to ensure pain relief and to keep surgery at bay. Thank you Dr. Day!"
