Love your exercise, but like to protect your body from strains? Using an athletic support could help avoid you getting injured. If you have minor aches and pains, one of these smart little helpers can give you peace of mind. And if you do hurt yourself, they could speed up your recovery.
You can find supports for wrists, knees, ankles and backs. They provide adjustable compression, and support the joint while allowing controlled, flexible movement. When you feel ready, choose gentle exercise like walking. Many people like to use pedometers to count steps for added incentive. A fitness tracker such as a Fitbit flex will also track your heart rate, sleep patterns and calorie intake.
Exercise bikes are a good option for when you want to up the tempo at home. Treadmills also give you an excellent cardio workout. A selection of dumbbells will help you tone up. Just remember to stretch before you start.
