Chiropractic; a bodybuilder’s secret weapon!

All Posts

Before choosing a chiropractor in Seattle to help you with your body building goals, please read this.

As a chiropractor and amateur bodybuilder, I know that even minor injuries can throw bodybuilders off their training schedule and  jeopardize their chance to compete. Chiropractic helps with pain relief and speeds recovery time to get you back to doing what you love.

Rather than masking symptoms like pain pills or anti-inflammation drugs, chiropractic gets to the source of the problem.   However, this is just one of many benefits chiropractic provides to bodybuilders.

Back health and core strength are the most important factors in overall performance for bodybuilding. Being able to lift more weight while avoiding injury allows you to reach your size, shape and fitness gains.

Chiropractic adjustments increase flexibility,  enabling you to engage muscles at deeper levels to create more definition; a major factor in judging.  Symmetry is another major factor in judging. Without proper spinal alignment you might experience a difference in strength between limbs, which is not good when you are trying to achieve symmetry.

Chiropractic at its most basic, is all about improving your body’s ability to heal itself, which in turn helps its growth abilities. Removing barriers caused by a variety of stresses provides better central nervous system function and nerve signal efficiency, which plays a role in every set of muscle contractions in your workout.

Chiropractic, it is a bodybuilder’s secret weapon!

As a chiropractor and life-long fitness enthusiast, I am committed to work-out on a daily basis.   I have always kept myself in excellent shape, but never put in the extra time and effort to achieve my  goal of competing in a bodybuilding contest until I met I met Alden Gamet.  For  twelve weeks in 2013,  Alden planned my workout routines, my diet, and my supplements.  By following Alden’s advice , I lost 30 pounds and my body fat percentage dropped from 20 percent to 7 percent.  Thanks to Alden’s expert instruction, by competition day I was in the best shape of my life. Though I didn’t “win” the competition, I won by being in the best shape of my life. Thank you, Alden at ALL-DONE FITNESS for taking my training to a new level and helping me sculpt my 51-year-old body into the best shape I’ve ever been in. ~ Dr. Devine

    The article said, “Chiropractic adjustments increase flexibility, enabling you to engage muscles at deeper levels to create more definition.”

    That is very true and affects athletes who need more flexibility, speed, and dexterity. Most professional football teams have a chiropractor on the sideline with the team. And a lot of PGA golf tournaments have chiropractors ready to adjust players as they need it.
