Ways to Prevent Injury

If you’ve been following me on Instagram then you will know that I injured my lower back about 4 weeks ago. Well much to my dismay, I am still not recovered and things don’t seem to be getting any better. Now, I’ve pulled my back a couple times in the past but I’ve usually recovered in about a week or two. This time around, I’ve going to the physical therapist and I seem to have a pinch in  my piriformis muscle.

I think it's partially because everyone is looking for an easy fix to losing weight and getting healthy. I mean if not there wouldn’t be an entire industry of supplements and diet pills promising to get you thin quick, Or maybe they just want to maximize their time at the gym since most don’t really like it but they go because they figure it's the only way they will lose weight.
