Basic push-up

Triathlete Sarah Haskins spends five hours a day training as she prepares for the 2012 Olympics. Her attention is focused on strengthening her core. “If your core isn’t stable, your form will fall apart, and it can even lead to injury,” she explains. The first step to becoming an Olympian is to develop your strength–having fun is also important. For starters, try working on your push-up. Consistent training and correct alignment can get your the results you want.

 

Exercise post-surgery

Getting ready for surgery may bring anxiety for all sorts of reasons. The process may even seem more stressful to those who like working out and think that the surgery will take that privilege away. This is not always the case. What one needs to do is consult with the surgeon in charge to get specific instructions. As a preparation, read this article that explains several types of injury and the appropriate recommendations for working out (or not).

Good luck!
