Cuts, and scrapes, and bruises, oh my! When it comes to common household injuries, it’s best to be prepared by keeping all your home medical supplies all in one spot. Your first-aid kit could be a cardboard box, a tackle box, or a pre-packaged kit, but all should contain some basic items. Below is a list of things you should consider putting in your home kit.
We’ve all heard the axiom “no pain, no gain” when it comes to exercising, but how do you know when it’s become too much pain? Before muscles can strengthen themselves, the muscle first must be stressed. As muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and even bone are stressed slowly over time, they build up strength that allows them to perform better during strenuous workouts. But if your body isn’t used to the stress of working out, or if you train too hard, often times the “burn” you feel during a workout is more pain than should be expected or is healthy.
