We all know the importance of exercise and also how hard it can get to exercising and maintaining a good physique. In this ever-busy schedule it can get really tiresome and one of the major chronic problem comes with back pain and joint pains which are becoming more common by the day.
One way of getting rid of these problems is using an inversion table to relax and decompress your muscles to gently elongate to diminish the pain. It is good to use an inversion table but anything in excess is harmful so it is important to know how long is good enough.
How long is good?
It is more of a personal choice and stamina but in average it is good and advisable for one to start with a 1-2-minute session. It is important to realise that frequency is more important than duration when it comes to inverting.
Over time, after successful inverts for a while the average time can be increased to around 3-5-minute per session. There is no such predefined time limit as such, but it is important to know your body’s limitations and act accordingly. Use it as long as it takes for your muscles to release and relax.
How many times?
For best results, it is advisable to invert several times day. Inversion can be a great morning exercise and a great exercise to also end the day. It can be used after every activity to relax your muscles and release them. It can be used as a way to recover from a hard activity or after a stressful activity.
There are many days when after cooking for a very long time or doing a lot of hectic cleaning work one might want to relax their muscles and the inverting can be one of the best methods to so.
When to not?
Inverting shouldn’t be done immediately after eating or waking up. Motor motions of the body should be stable and shouldn’t be performed while drunk too. Inverting is one such thing which can be done almost any time except for some restricted duration like the ones mentioned above.
