Building your neck and back muscles is a great way to strengthen and fortify your spine, so long as you do it the correct way. When we're engaging these important muscle groups, it's important to be mindful of the fact that they are prone to injury, especially if we're lifting excessively heavy weight. Below, Barton Chiropractic Clinic goes over some measures you can take to properly build your back.
Go Light on the Weight
Lighten up on the weight when you perform lifts that work your back and neck muscles.
Engage Your Core
Engaging your core is an important part of getting a 360-degree workout. Think of your core as your midsection -- your back, your abs, your obliques, and more.
Invest in Kettlebells
Kettlebells are great for doing at-home core workouts. Invest in varying weights to get more complete workouts.
Don't Forget Your Neck
There are apparatuses that help you properly work your neck which are worth researching. Not all products are as made as high quality as others.
Chiropractic treatments are a great companion to an active lifestyle routine. Contact Barton Chiropractic Clinic today to schedule your consultation in order to learn more.
