Don’t be fooled by the pace! Slower activities can lead to many physical benefits. Simple, mindful movement will increase blood flow, putting gentle forces on muscles, tendons and joints to support the growth and rebuilding of these structures. If you find yourself sitting often, quick activity add-ins throughout your day could lead to better results for more complex weekend activities. It is also just as important for high level exercisers to recognize the benefits of working slower, restorative activities into their weekly program. These mindful exercises will support athletes from breaking down and lead to positive gains.
