Four Types of Strengthening Exercises That Can Improve Your Health

If you are looking for a way to improve your overall health, then it is important for you to take care of your body. This means getting enough sleep, eating a healthy diet, and exercising regularly. If you are looking for a way to improve your physical health, you should learn more about strengthening exercises. At Hogan Spine & Rehab, we work with our patients individually, helping you find the right exercises to help you improve your overall health. Take a look at a few examples of muscular strength exercises that may be able to help you improve your health and wellness. 

What Are the Four Types of Muscular Strength Exercises?

In general, there are four types of muscular strength exercises. Each exercise plays an important role in helping you recover from an injury. These exercises include:

Endurance Exercises

The first type of exercise is called endurance exercise. Examples of endurance exercises include power walking, jogging, swimming, and biking. These exercises are designed to improve the health and wellness of your cardiovascular system.

Strength Exercises

The next type of exercise is called a strength exercise. Examples of strength exercises include arm curls, push-ups, and pull-ups. Strength exercises are designed to help you increase the strength and endurance of specific muscle groups. This is also called resistance training, and it is designed to help your muscle groups exert greater force.

Balance Exercises

Balance exercises are designed to help you improve your coordination. Examples of balance exercises include Tai Chi, the heel-toe walk, and standing on one foot. Balance exercises are important because they can prevent you from falling over, which would otherwise lead to a serious injury.

Flexibility Exercises

Flexibility exercises are usually stretching. There are numerous types of stretches that you can perform, including hamstring stretches, back stretches, and ankle stretches. By increasing your flexibility, you improve the ability of your muscle groups to withstand certain motions. Flexibility exercises can also reduce your chances of suffering an injury.

Can Exercises and Physical Therapy Work Together?

Yes, we incorporate these exercises as a part of our comprehensive treatment strategy. Our goal is to help you not only treat acute injuries but also prevent them from coming back. That is why these exercises work perfectly with our physical therapy programs.

If you have recently suffered an injury, it is important to focus on restoring strength, flexibility, and range of motion to the injured body part. Our healthcare professionals have physical therapy programs that include many of these exercises to do exactly that. Our goal is to help you make an efficient, complete recovery from your injuries. 

In addition, we also want to prevent these injuries from coming back in the future. These exercises are designed to provide more support to body parts that have been injured. By supporting injured muscles, ligaments, and tendons, we can increase the ability of your body to stand up to stressful movements in the future, preventing injuries.
