Hydration + Weight Lifting
Looking to boost the tone and strength of your muscles? Hydration is key! Water helps lubricate your joints and gives you energy by transporting nutrients to your cells and help eliminate waste out of your body. Poor hydration has been linked to poor physical health. Water helps form the structures of protein needed to move and flex your muscles. If your body is dehydrated, your muscles will be deprived of electrolytes and cramp causing injuries that affect the joints and soft-tissue structures near the joints.
While there are many benefits to weight lifting; like burning more fat for a faster metabolism, helping to reduce the risk of osteoporosis, and healthier joints. Chiropractic care can also help ensure proper posture and form while performing those heavy lifts during your workout and help aid in correcting any injuries from weight lifting. Joint manipulation can be used to rehabilitate weightlifting injuries and it can help to ensure a better outcome! Drink minimum 64oz of water everyday and practice safe weight lifting by scheduling a chiropractic appointment with us today at Dupage Health and Physical Therapy!
