7:17 am
lactic acid buildup in the muscles which makes you feel sore. what happens is, you are going to halt your exercise progression or get injured which definitely will derail you from your course and your fitness program. >> absolutely. that will send you to dr. rob's office. we don't want that. not that we don't want that. obviously, cold weather really affects the body and has impact on the body, is that right? >> absolutely. especially in the joints. as grandma said and all your friends with the joints, i feelt it chills me to the bone. it's a change in the barometric pressure. after an injury, the pressure is the weight of the atmosphere around us. when it's warm, the barometric pressure is high. there's no pressure on the joints. when it gets cold, the barometric pressure drops, there's no pressure on the joints and it feels almost like a balloon and all the tissues around it squeeze, they squeeze on the joint and the nerves. they squeeze on the muscles. so that's the pain that they
7:18 am
>> when you put it that way, that's really a legitimate pain. most people think, like we say, hey, i know the rain is coming, my knee is aching. it's real. >> exactly. grandma told us that. >> grandma sure did. let's get tips to help us get back in the swing of things. first up, stretching. the most important. most people stretch before. but you say after. you need to stretch out after a workout today. >> technically, it's before and after. ideally, you would warm up for five minutes and go into your dynamic stretching. that's a movement-based stretching. you're getting the pumping and getting the movement. something like a knee to chest. like this. that's a great stretch. the dynamic stretch. and then a walking lunge like this. both are activity-based and they mimic the movement. that would be like a running. it simulates part of your running gait cycle. it's important because you're trying to warm up the body,
7:19 am
get it so you're not injuring yourself and enhancing muscle performance. >> when you cool down with stretching, you're bringing those muscles back into what state? >> a lengenned position. because after the activity, the muscles have a tendency to get back into a shortened position. it's going to release that lactic acid that builds up and it's great after the exercise because the blood is flowing to the skeletal muscles and more range of motion without it being as uncomfortable. >> you say slow and steady wins the race. >> always wins the race. start back exercising slow. don't get the intensity high. after two weeks, your body is deconditioned. we want to start on a pre-exercise routine, it typically takes about a month to get back into it. in that two weeks you take off,
7:20 am
endurance decreases and insulin sensitivity becomes decreased as well. you have a lot of components. take it slow. don't get injured. i don't want to see you for that reason. >> not for that reason. karina says it's important to check your sneakers before you start back up on the track. why don't you show us what we need to look for. >> you need to have the appropriate fitness gear for the fitness activity. checking your sneakers are important. check the wear pattern. check the cushioning. listen to your body for aches and pains. if you see the tread has gone down or if you feel, if you push into the cushion and it doesn't rebound, that means it's gone and you have to replace the sneakers. you're going to add more compression into the joints. also, wearing the appropriate gear for the activity is important. it has to be able to let you move. it has to fit well and it's got to be functional. something durable, affordable and functional is important. dan skin is available at walmart. that's what i'm wearing.
