Inversion tables are nifty devices that allow you to enjoy relaxation and actual benefits to your health. Your first time using an inversion table can be somewhat scary, since you will be at a negative incline that seems rather extreme. In following some tips, your safety and enjoyment will be protected.
The first mistake that many first-timers make is to note buckle your leg strap down good. You should exert a large amount of force on the strapping mechanism to ensure that you won’t simply fall out of the machine while being under the incline. Sadly enough, some even forget to strap themselves in due to their excitement and are in for a rude awakening that can possibly injure them.
Your first time using an inversion table should already tell you to take things slow. You shouldn’t increase the incline to a ninety degree angle your first try, even if trying to show friends you aren’t scared to do so. If you rush into using the inversion table at a large degree of angle, you could become nauseous and could become quite dizzy.
When coming back up from an inclined angle, take your time. Some automatically think that you should be able to stand back up and get off the machine. This isn’t true, and could cause you to fall down from disorientation. Instead you should continually decrease the angle of incline over several minutes to slowly redirect the flow of blood back to the way it was before your incline.
When you first go under the incline, you are probably thinking to yourself that you could handle a long time period of time spent under the incline. Even if you feel this way, try to limit the time you have under incline to several minutes your first time. Too much time spent under incline on your first time could cause several things such as headaches once you return to your normal position. As you use the inversion table more you can increase this time period.
As a last word of friendly advice, do remember two special things: tuck in your shirt before going on the incline, and empty your pockets. It’s funny for others to watch change and mobile phones fall from your pockets or even to see your shirt fall down, but it won’t be so funny for you. Remember other mentioned tips and you should enjoy your first time on an inversion table to no end.
There are many retailers available to choose from should you decide that you would like to keep an inversion table in your home life. There are also gyms that stock them for health savvy consumers who appreciate relaxation.
