Active people take hits.  They get bumps, bruises, aches, and pains.  Some are ER worthy in which case the patient will undergo physician’s care.  Others are mere inconveniences that cause pain, swelling, discoloration, and irritation.  Instances of pain are normal, chronic pain is not.  There are solutions and preventative measures that can be taken to reduce the body’s reaction to active lifestyle occurrences.

Core Strengthening is fun and invigorating.  Yoga core strengthening poses are varied and produce excellent results.  One core strengthening pose which has become popular in the fitness industry over the last decade is called hover or plank (caturanga dandasana).  This pose has been practiced by yogins over thousands of years!

More and more high end athletes are pre-cooling before their sport as research continues to be done on the enhanced performance benefits one receives. When conditioning/training the body’s central organs (specifically the liver, kidneys and intestines) rise significantly in temperature and can often times exceed 101 degrees. This causes water and blood to leave the muscles and race to the skin in an attempt to cool the individual down which will lead to fatigue as it depletes the muscles of oxygen and dehydrates them.
