| 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.

Just 3 sessions with Dr. Goss accomplished what 5 weeks of physical therapy couldn't--finally a treatment that worked for my neck pain! I've been doing so much better. I've continued to see her for maintenance and the occasional urgently needed adjustment. I've been able to get appointments that work with my schedule and have been able to get in the same day when I need to. I've also been amazed by how quickly I am seen when I'm there for treatment--the longest wait I ever had there was 5 minutes to be seen (and that only happened once in the 2 years I've been going there). Usually, I am seen immediately. I highly recommend Complete Chiropractic of Union!
