Health is one of a few things we should try to keep the most. Unfortunately, the way of living we are literally forced to follow does not leave much space and time for preparing some healthy meals, for quality exercises, for enough resting, for a life without stress etc. But, some reorganization of life might help. There must be time for exercises, and a bit more for healthy meals, if nothing else.

Importance of physical activity

Being physically active will get you strong muscles and a fit body, but not only that, there are some additional benefits that are very helpful, including increased rate of the basal metabolism, more energy for all activities, and stronger immune system. This is what happens when exercising is moderate and regular. If type of workout is bodybuilding, it is something a bit different. Anyway, physical activity through weight reduction prevents certain medical issues that might occur if extra fat tissue is present for a long time. Those conditions are increased blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes etc. Mental health can be disturbed too with the decrease of the self-confidence.

Strain of the muscle

Still, if the someone is exercising regularly, some rules have to be set to prevent injuries from happening, which means that before and after the training session, there must be a stretching period (and warming up before the start). Stretching and warming muscles is very important because it raises the temperature and the flexibility of the muscles. It is also beneficial for more efficient performance during a training session. Strain of the muscles is not painful much, but it can last for a couple of days, even more, and that is the period when usually no physical activity is possible. But muscle strain does not come only because of exercising.

Trapezius muscle strain can emerge because of the bad posture while sitting for a long time (because of job, for example). It is presented with a pain in the back, especially between the shoulder blades. It is not an intensive pain, but it is always present, a constant reminder that there is something wrong with your back. The pain can even spread towards the neck area and also lower, towards lumbar area. This pain can be alleviated with a proper posture, with occasional stretching, and if possible, exercising. And if none of those helped, it is obvious that a visit to a doctor is obligated. Pain meds might be used, but only if those are prescribed by a medical expert.
