To start practicing sports and to begin doing any physical activity is a very important decision. However, it is not only a question of starting doing them. You need to prepare your body for the exercises. That will minimize the risk of injuries and will also improve your performance and results.
First of all, before you start training, look for a physical education professional, a nutritionist, and doctors. Be sure to have your medical exams! With healthy eating habits, workout plans and adequate rest, your objectives will be easily achieved.
According to Professor of Physical Education, Personal Trainer, former athlete and basketball coach, Julio Leal, the training and methods used will vary according to the biological individuality of each person, his or her objectives and cardio-respiratory fitness. If your body is prepared adequately, it is possible to improve physical capacities such as strength, balance, coordination and flexibility.
Many working people that just go to the gym end up looking for an individualized form of training, which can optimize time and help in terms of injury prevention. The important thing is to respect the physical condition of each person.
In the case of marathons, half marathons, or street racing, in Professor Leal’s opinion, however, as much as these activities seem easy, they require an evaluation and it is necessary for you to be in good physical condition. The best thing to do is to find a doctor specialized in sports, coaches or sport specialized professionals before beginning these races.
Your progress has to be progressive, without skipping steps. Start with shorter races; go progressively until your debut in a marathon.
How about starting training together?
A big kiss! And have a good Sport & Health!
