About Your Health
Every hour when you are sitting is great! In a perfect world a sedentary person would get up every 20 minutes and perform purposeful movement activity (PMA) video exercises to maximally offset the adverse affects of prolonged sitting. Realistically every hour will still do the trick.
Any chance you have to get up and engage your muscles with purposeful movement activity(PMA) will at least temporarily offset the adverse affects of sitting. Research shows we have to move and use our muscles as much as possible to be healthy. So GET UP whenever you can and perform a video!
Absolutely! The human body thrives on frequent movement and muscle activity. Collapsed posture, spinal compression, muscle atrophy, lost flexibility, muscle tension and joint stiffness are all side affects of sitting. The purposeful movement activities(PMA’s) in each video are specifically intended to address and counteract the adverse affect sitting has on our muscles and reverse postural strain.
The purposeful movement activity(PMA) video exercises in the Well Fit Plus program should never cause pain! If something hurts stop! If it hurts every time you do a specific movement you should consult your physician. This is a warning sign of a potential problem. You can continue to perform the PMA’s that do not hurt you.
If your body is not accustomed to exercise and using your muscles on a regular basis, it is very normal to experience mild exercise soreness for a couple days. This will pass as your body adapts to PMA’s over a week or two depending on your fitness level. You should never experience a pain level that prevents you from normal activity. If you are overly sore reduce your scheduled activity frequency. If you are in PAIN stop and discuss your response with your physician.
Research shows that the human body has to be active and movement is essential to optimal health and wellness. In as little as 20 minutes of sitting, physiologically our body starts to shut down and the cascade to failed health is initiated. Engaging our muscles regularly is essential to optimal health. WE HAVE TO MOVE REGULARLY TO STAY PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY, AND EMOTIONALLY HEALTHY! If you want to complete your wellness goals, get up at least every hour and move.
Always go at your comfortable pace. Normally your abilities will improve slowly over time. If your short of breath or experience chest pain, dizziness, light headedness or any unusual discomfort, stop and consult your physician.
Postural back, neck strain and even headache pain associated with sitting are one of the primary targets of this program. Video purposeful movement activities(PMA’s) will help to counteract postural strain and will provide relief from uncomplicated spinal strain. If you have specific spinal injury or disease just be cautious during PMA videos. If you experience pain , STOP.
A sedentary workplace and life is our most common contributing factor to being lethargic and poor quality of life. Every aspect of human physiology and health is dependent on movement and muscle activity to function optimally. Our physical, mental and emotional wellbeing will decline if we don’t move regularly. Without regular activity our muscles atrophy, our cardiovascular health declines, our blood sugar and fat metabolism declines, and we gain weight. The risk of developing diabetes, heart diseases, anxiety, depression, cancer, inflammatory disorders, dementia, Alzheimers, and most disease is astoundingly increased. Increased mortality and premature death are even linked to a sedentary lifestyle. ACTIVITY AND MOVEMENT, USING OUR MUSCLES REGULARLY AND FREQUENTLY DURING THE DAY IS THE KEY TO GOOD HEALTH AND WELLNESS. GET UP…..MOVE…..FEEL THE ENERGY AND VITALITY RETURN TO YOUR LIFE! LIVE A WELL FIT PLUS LIFE!
