Got 7 Minutes?


Then you have time for a workout!


The seven-minute workout, has been made popular by a New York Times article covering a recent circuit workout published in the American College of Sports Medicine's (ACSM) Health & Fitness Journal. Basically it is a form of high intensity circuit training (HICT), which challenges you to do short bouts of intense exercise. The 7 minute workout does just that...and gets you to use the majority of major muscle groups in the process. All you need is yourself, a wall and a chair (or steps) to complete the workout. Will 7 minutes of exercise be all that you need? Probably not. Combine this with some regular cardio and stretching and go through the 7 minute workout 2 or 3 times though and you will be well on your way! For a chart of the exercise for you to follow, click here. Have fun!

One diagnosis that we find many people have that leads them to physical therapy for treatment is osteoarthritis. It is something that most people have to deal with as it is part of the normal aging process, but not everyone is effected the same way. The good news is that physical therapy can be very effective in helping you get over many symptoms associated with osteoarthritis. People are staying active much longer in life and having the good flexibility and strength goes a long way in helping to reducing the effects of osteoarthritis to help keep you moving.

Do You Have "Balance" In Your Life?
If Not...You Should.
Falls are one of the common reasons for sustaining an injury...especially in the home. There are a number of conditions that can affect your balance, but there are also lots of steps you can take to help improve it. Fall Risk for seniors is especially important as sustaining an injury from a fall can be even more debilitating and even life threatening in some cases. The APTA has put together a guide on Fall Risk. To read more, please click on the image to the right. If you or someone you know could benefit from balance training to help prevent falls, see one of the experts at Blue Hills Sports & Spine.
