Tracking Internal Age After Recovering from an Injury
Jun 10, 2015 by Sarah Goodman | lifestyle
December of last year I was hit by a car while walking across the street. I'm a very active individual, and this accident took activity away from me for quite awhile. I've been using iHeart for over two years, tracking how lifestyle choices I make affect my Internal Age readings and tweaking my decisions based on what works best. I've just gotten back into doing some of my regular activities but I am consistently getting Internal Age readings of over 50 years old (I'm 31), which is pretty depressing, but I've been motivated to try every low impact exercise to see what makes the most difference to my internal health. Two days ago I tried something called Gravity Training with one of the iHeart Ambassadors Troy Tyrell. Before exercise I was my usual Internally old self:
Like I said, kind of depressing, but motivating to get younger and improve my body. I was willing to try different types of activity to see what worked best. Gravity training is a low impact 45 minute workout that uses only body weight to exercise and tone the whole body. I gave it a shot and let me tell you, it was TOUGH, but really fun. Each class is four people max and the teacher Troy was there to motivate and correct form.
After our workout I did my iHeart Internal Age reading again.
I couldn't believe the results!! I haven't seen an age that low for months. This workout really affected my Internal Age. Exactly what I was looking for. Thing is, Internal Age will always go down after a workout, but will return to baseline level a few hours later. The baseline reading will change after exercising regularly. Just seeing this made my day.
It's two days later and this morning I did my baseline Internal Age reading. I've biked around the city a bit since my workout but I've been WAY too sore to do anything else. I was so surprised when I read the results of my Internal Age test this morning. My baseline had gone down 15 years from just ONE Gravity Training class. I'm so impressed. This just shows that different types of activity will affect the body in different ways.
Tracking iHeart while recovering from an injury is opening my eyes to how my body reacts to all kinds of different stimuli like exercise, foods, stress and sleep quality. I'm excited to keep tracking to see how my body feels after more Gravity training and healthy choices.
