You May Be Ruining Your Workouts With These 4 Habits

September 19, 2015 2 min read

Sometimes it seems like there just aren't enough hours in the day. To avoid feeling like we can't quite fit it all in, we attempt to multi-task, especially when it comes to working out. Or, we may tend to skimp on certain things to make way for what we feel is the most important. Want to know how you may secretly be ruining your work out? Here are four things you could be doing wrong. workout 1. Texting & Checking Social Media One of the best parts about working out is that you get to separate yourself from all other happenings in your life. But it can be difficult to do so when your phone is in your pocket on loud, and every time you hear a "ding" you plunge into your pocket to retrieve it and read your message. Or perhaps you take a second to scroll through social media while you walk and warm up on the treadmill. You read something that sticks with you as you set your phone down and begin your run. Not being able to focus on your workout is detrimental to your overall performance. 2. Doing The Same Thing Every Time Every single day, you run for 30 minutes, complete the same ab routine and incorporate 50 push-ups. The problem with this is that, along with the chance that you may grow tired of doing this and eventually give up altogether, your body needs a challenge, and if you do the same routine each time, your body will adjust and plateau. 3. You Forget Recovery When you just want to get your workout over with, one of the first things you may toss out is recovery, but the importance of stretching is incredibly important. In order for your body and muscles to go hard the next day, they need time to rest and repair. So to avoid working out with stiff muscles and potentially cause yourself injury, don't skip recovery. 4. Not Being Properly Hydrated Bringing a water bottle to the gym isn't enough. You need to make sure you are hydrated well before you begin your workout. Dehydration can make way for a lack of energy and even dizziness, so if your game plan is high intensity cardio, yet you haven't had a sufficient amount of water in your system, you may notice that your performance will suffer.

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping.
