| 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.

Dr. Wipperman is friendly, knowledgeable and really cares about your health. The excellent information he has to share about your spinal health is more than you might expect! His staff is warm and friendly, and really helpful. While I started seeing Dr. Wipperman for one specific problem, over the course of my care, I am truly seeing the benefits to my overall health. I highly recommend Ballas Chiropractic!
