Stretching and Injury Prevention

 

 

 

Hi, Dr. Khademi here — remember to drink plenty of water, breathe deeply and stretch daily.

Make ooZeeki’s IsoStrength products (www.isostrength.com) a part of your injury prevention program.  Being flexible and getting rid of your tight muscles is paramount to preventing injuries.  However, this is not something that can happen with inconsistent stretching.  It is key that you take a few minutes each day to stretch various muscles of the body.  By doing so you are able to increase the range of motion in your entire body and prepare your body to be able to endure the extreme movements and stresses the body experiences during various types of fitness and labor.

Injuries accumulate as you grow older.  With every injury you attain as you grow into your teens, twenties and so on, your joints begin to weaken and those same areas grow prone to recurrent injury.  Because of this you are unable to perform to your maximum abilities and it can often lead to hesitancy to do so and the onset of sedentary lifestyle.  With routine stretching using our products you will be able to train your muscles to be flexible and increase your performance and continue to participate in all the activities you enjoy well into your 50’s and 60’s.

Be sure to come check us our at the Marine Corps Marathon this weekend — booth 163!  We have stretching stations set up so you can experience the power of IsoStrength.

Talk to you soon,

Dr. Khademi

Stretching to lose weight???

Hi, Dr. Khademi here — remember to drink plenty of water, breathe deeply and stretch daily.

Wow, really, stretching to lose weight – how do you do that?  Well, this will require a willing lifestyle change we think we can help you with.   Many people do not participate in exercise because it causes them pain and fatigue.  The same people who are not motivated to exercise because of hectic jobs or an overall sedentary lifestyle should take the time to stretch their bodies on a daily basis. By stretching your body routinely, you become more motivated and experience less pain as well.   The idea is that the time you set aside to stretch will serve as a spark plug to become more physically active all together.  Before you know it you are stretching, exercising and gradually developing the desire to be a more mobile individual who incorporates daily wellness into their lives.  Studies have shown that there are many benefits to one’s overall health if they merely perform 15 minutes of exercise a day.  We suggest adding 5-7 minutes of stretching, using our IsoStrength family of products (www.isostrength.com) to that 15-20 minute daily exercise routine to assist in helping you lose weight and be an overall healthier individual.  Look forward to talking to you again soon!
