Work Out Routinely – Free of Tendinitis!

As summers waning do you start thinking about going back to working out more often. I sure do. In the summer I ride my bike, go for walks and fit in a workout maybe 2 times a week and yoga once. But once September is here, I try to consistently do yoga or Pilates and workout at the gym 5 times a week. I’ve noticed as I get older, how important it is. When I work out consistently it helps me keep tendinitis away. And I always warm up a little first by moving my limbs in various ways and stretching gently. Then when I get into my exercises, it...

I love an instructor that explains both options! For yoga for...
