"Just Right" Exercise
| Cardiovascular and strength training exercises are a potent tag team for health promotion. Each form of exercise contributes to the value of the other. The combination provides strength, endurance, balance, and coordination, enhancing your overall health and well-being.
Cardiovascular training boosts the ability of your heart and lungs to make oxygen available to the rest of your body. When you do strength training, your muscles get stronger faster because of the increased oxygen availability. Likewise, strength training indirectly trains your heart and lungs, owing to the increased demand for oxygen by muscles that are working intensely. So each form of training complements and improves the performance of the other.
Ideally we're training six days a week, but of course that's not always possible. Even dedicated exercisers go through periods of downtime. Life happens. The secret is to keep going in some way, and get back to your regular routine as soon as possible.
The good news is when you've developed a moderately high level of physical fitness, you'll always be able to recover quickly from downtime or other breaks in your regular routine.

Dr. Simmons is a lifesaver!! As a nurse I'm on my feet a lot and the pain in my back and hips was starting to interfere with my job. After a few visits with Dr. Simmons the pain and tightness in my back and hips was totally diminished and I can work a shift plus some and be totally pain free. She is also a delightful person! I look forward to my regular visits with her!
