What is muscular strength and endurance?
Muscular strength is the ability of a muscle to produce force. Muscular endurance is the ability of a muscle to produce for over a period of time. Increasing muscle strength and endurance you’re able to do daily activities with more ease which means it takes less energy (this will leave you with more energy to do the things you really enjoy).
Why is flexibility important?
Flexibility allows the muscles and joints to move in the directions they are supposed to. When your body isn’t able to move correctly you will compensate for the limitation which can lead to injuries (tight hamstrings can lead to low back pain).
How do you assess posture?
Before starting a program you need to look at the basic “body map”. Spine alignment, foot positioning, knee deformities, and overall joint positioning can positively or negatively affect physical activities. By identifying any problem areas first your program can be adjusted to keep you safe, pain free, and working towards your goals.
What does this all mean for you?
Having a wellness/fitness assessment prior to starting a program allows you to establish a solid baseline, have a licensed physical therapist identify needs before they become a problem, and allows you to establish an effective plan to meet your personal goals.
