Spring Forward to a Better You

With today marking the first day of spring, it's time to get back to that neglected workout routine. Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your spring training sessions!

Today marks the first day of spring. While the scenery currently outside your window may dictate otherwise, beautiful weather is right around the corner. With it comes the ability to recommit to those New Year resolution workout goals you gave up on because it was too cold.

Here are some tips to help you spring back into shape:

Workout Outdoors
As much fun as staring at a TV while you're on the treadmill can be, sometimes a change in scenery can make a world of difference in the dedication to your workout routine. If you traditionally run a mile every day, try running around your neighborhood or along a forest trail. The change in environment will keep you motivated as well as break your body of the "clockwork" mentality. If yoga is your usual form of meditation, try finding a quiet place in the park instead of staying indoors. Do something fun and the enjoyment will ease your everyday commitment.

Household Chores Help
While those weeds and home repair projects may not seem to be the most tantalizing options on your to-do list, they can actually boost your overall health. U.S. News and World Report recently reported gardening and yard work can burn between 250 and 350 calories per hour. Exposure to the sun can also help restore the vitamin D your body lost during the time spent inside.

Beware of Allergens
With the new life of spring comes the the rebirth of some of your old allergies. Spring is one of the worst times for allergy sufferers due to high mold and pollen counts. Don't let your allergies cut your workout short, try a natural allergy supplement or immunity booster to build up your resistance.

Gradually Increase Your Training
If you felt you were in the best shape of your life by the end of fall (before you went into hibernation), you may think it's possible to just pick up where you left off. Chances are, your body lost a great deal of strength and conditioning during the winter months you were more sedentary. It's best to test your body's capabilities after your hiatus than to assume they're the same. Overexertion at an early stage can lead to injury.

Properly Clothe Yourself
While everyone's initial reaction to spring may be to grab the nearest pair of shorts and a t-shirt, this may not always be the best option. Improper clothing can lead to inadequate circulation, making your workout less effective. There can also be a negative effect on your immune system if exposed to colder temperatures, rendering all the hard work you put in obsolete.

Protect Your Skin
Although the weather may be mild, it's important you constantly keep your body protected from UV rays. When working, or working out outdoors, apply a sunscreen with at least 15 SPF to any exposed body part. Try to use a waterproof sunscreen if you're participating in an activity that results in a decent amount of sweat.

Don't Kid Yourself
Keep a journal of your progress to gage the progress of your workout. This helps motivates you as you see progress and keeps you accountable towards your goals. But don't set goals that may be impossible to reach. It probably isn't a good idea to make your goal to have the figure of a supermodel if you're just beginning to work out. Start with simple ideas such as being able to run around the block a few times without breathing heavily. Pick something you can build towards safely, without getting bored or slacking off.

Whether you're looking for a pre-workout to give you a kick start, an anti-inflammatory to soothe those aching joints, or something in between, eVitamins has all you need to help you better yourself. Happy spring to you!
