A balanced, healthy nutrition consisting of carbohydrates, proteins, and healthy fats before any exercise or physical activity can provide the body with the essential energy it needs to perform to its fullest capacity. While many athletes already follow a nutritious pre-workout diet to properly fuel their bodies at the start of their sport, many of these same individuals often struggle to continue supplying energy to their system throughout their physical routine.

There’s a large variety of dietary supplements that can increase an individual’s energy during exercise and physical activities but, more and more athletes today prefer to avoid the processed options and instead seek the more natural choices to achieve these same results. When considering to participate in strenuous training activities or endurance events, staying hydrated and fueled throughout the workout is important for the body to be able to perform to its fullest capabilities. The following simple snack ideas can benefit athletes and the general public alike during training and exercise sessions.

Frozen grapes are a great snack to eat during workouts. Sweet and refreshing, frozen grapes can be easily carried with you in a small sandwich bag or container. They are also easy to eat on the go. To prepare the grapes, cut them in half and then freeze. Eating a single or multiple frozen grape halves during a training routine or physical exercise event can help provide you with a small dose of continuous energy as well as hydration throughout the workout.

Individuals who’ve used energy gels can shift to using local, natural honey as an alternative. Honey is a natural energy booster as it’s a great source of carbohydrates and its natural sugars also play an important role in preventing fatigue during exercise. The glucose found in honey is quickly absorbed by the body, giving individuals an immediate energy boost while the fructose is absorbed slowly, providing constant energy. Honey is best known for it’s effectiveness in instantly boosting the endurance and performance of athletes.

Finally, instead of using processed energy drinks enhanced with electrolytes, 100% natural coconut water can replace missing electrolytes much more efficiently after a long workout. Coconut water is low in calories, naturally fat and cholesterol free, and has more potassium than four bananas. Drinking coconut water during and after strenuous physical activities can quickly supply your body with electrolytes and re-hydrate you efficiently.

Pain in the Quadratus Lumborum Muscle

A majority of the population have at some point experienced low back pain in their lifetimes. Although low back pain is recognized to result from numerous conditions or injuries on the lumbar spine, muscle strains such as a quadratus lumborum muscle strain, are believed to be a leading cause for the recognizable symptoms of pain and discomfort.
The quadratus lumborum muscle is a sizable muscle in the shape of a triangle, located deep on each respective side of the lower back. The role of the wide muscular tissue is to grant mobility to the lumbar spine in sequence for the torso to move laterally from side to side as well as extend and stabilize the lower spine to improve posture. When this muscle is strained or pulled, the symptoms can restrict movement on the lower back and since the muscular tissue is so extensive, recovery from this type of injury usually requires more time and patience to fully heal.

Achilles Tendon Injury

Achilles tendonitis is a medical term used to describe a condition resulting in irritation of the large tendon, the Achilles tendon. Found in the back of the ankle, this condition is recognized as a common cause for injury among athletes. Excessive use of the Achilles tendon results in inflammation together with swelling and pain.
The development of Achilles tendonitis can be associated with two important factors, most frequently among athletes, which are, lack of flexibility and over-pronation. With age, the tendons will begin to lose flexibility, just the same as other tissues in the body. This change causes the tendons to become more rigid and more vulnerable to injury. For some people, the ankle may roll too far downward and inward with each step they take. This is called over-pronation, which places more stress on the tendons and ligaments of the foot, contributing to injury if not corrected.
Achilles tendonitis may also develop from other factors. An increase in an athlete’s …

5 Common Causes for Shoulder Pain

The shoulders are the most mobile joints in the human body. Because the ball of the humerus is designed to be larger than the shoulder socket that holds it, the shoulders need to be supported by muscles, tendons, and ligaments to secure them in a stable or natural position. Since the shoulder can be unstable, it is often a site for many common complications. Below are 5 common causes of shoulder pain and their associated symptoms.
Rotator Cuff Tear
Rotator cuff tears within the shoulder are a very common type of shoulder injury. The rotator cuff consists of a set of four muscles: the supraspinatus, the infraspinatus, the subscapularis, and the teres minor. All of these muscles are attached to the bones of the shoulders by tendons, which purspose is to support, stabilize, and grant the arm movement to move up, down and rotate. The rotator cuff ensures that the arm remains in the shoulder socket. Damage or injury from an accident or gradual wear and tear can result in inflammation to t…
