I married my loving husband in a beautiful church ceremony ten years ago. After our wedding, I moved into my spouse’s home. Unfortunately, the move required me to live 75 miles away from my family. Because I missed my parents, my grandmother, and my sister so much, I started experiencing anxiety. I didn’t wish to take medication for this condition. So, I researched natural anxiety cures. I was surprised to learn that eating some foods can help people battling this troubling disorder. Thankfully, by eating these foods, exercising, and thinking positively, I was able to overcome my bout with anxiety. On this blog, you will discover the best natural cures for anxiety.
For some people, participating in a sport is how they stay motivated to lose weight or achieve other fitness goals. If you are unsure of what sport is right for you, there are several reasons powerlifting in a gym might be the best option.
The ability to participate in a competitive sport is one of the reasons many people start powerlifting. There are several federations you can join, depending on your needs. For example, there are tested and untested federations. Tested federations test for banned substances that might be used for performance-enhancing purpose. This is ideal for people who want an even playing field and only want to compete against natural athletes. Untested federations can include people who use performance-enhancing substance or those who take medications for health reasons, but these substances are still considered banned by tested federations. Depending on your location, you might find local chapters of federations for you to join and compete in meets.
Wide Range Of Body Types
Regardless of shape and size, there is a wide range of people who have body image issues. This can lead people to shy away from sports because they erroneously believe they cannot be an athlete. When you look at some of the big names in powerlifting, you quickly see there is significant variation in the body types of successful powerlifters. This is because strength comes in many different forms and these people work hard to improve their technique and increase the amount of weight they can lift. Many people also find that participating in a sport and seeing what their body can do reduces their body image issues.
No Age Limits
You may feel like your athletic days are behind you or you wish you had participated in sports back in high school or college. Unlike most sports that often require you to start as a child, powerlifters can start at any age. If you want to participate in local or national meets, you will see there are typically different age categories, with people well into their senior years competing. Another benefit of powerlifting, especially as you age, is the health benefits. Lifting weights can reduce the chance of osteoporosis, especially in women, because lifting increases bone density and makes it less likely you will fracture a bone during a fall. Also, lifting weights can improve balance and functional fitness.
Whether you are a child or senior citizen, the doors to powerlifting are open to you. The inclusiveness of powerlifting makes it appealing to people who want a chance to become an athlete.
