Everyone knows about what you must do when it comes to building muscles, but when it comes to what not to do, there’s a lot less information out there and a lot of it is conflicting. Some people say drink whey protein shakes; some people say don’t bother while others say instead just take something else. Other people say to do so many reps of such and such an exercise but the truth is that these little details are yours to work out.
You should figure out for yourself what you need to work on but there are some universal ‘do not do that’ tips.
Our hands and arms are perhaps one of the most overworked voluntary muscles of our body. We use them to write, type on the keyboard, hold up a book, mix ingredients, cradle the baby and lift things, among others. With weak arms, it’s easy for objects to fall or break.
It’s also equally simple for us to strain or injure ourselves in the process. That is why it’s important to strengthen you arms.
The following routines should help you get started:
Imagine yourself in the middle of an important game. The scores are close and you are at bat. The pitcher throws the ball your way, you swing your bat, and you hear the satisfying whack of the ball hitting the bat. The ball flies to the outfield. You run to the first base.
And then the unexpected happens.
You twist your foot. And then you feel a sharp pain in that area. You try to persevere, but you already see one of the outfielders throwing the ball to the first baseman. You run harder but the pain just becomes even worse.
