19. Inversion therapy
Well, if it works for Batman, why shouldn’t it work for you? Inversion therapy involves hanging upside down. This forces an increase in blood supply to the brain. Biohackers believe that this improves mental capacity and performance. The increased blood supply to the brain means an increased oxygen supply to the brain. Increased oxygen promotes increased brain function.
It’s not a good idea to go and hang upside down on the jungle gym at your local park as a DIY inversion therapy! You’ll probably scare the kids away and endure a visit from the police!
If you want to try inversion therapy, it needs to be done on an inversion table. This is a piece of equipment designed especially for the job. If you buy one, don’t do inversion therapy alone. You don’t want to get stuck hanging upside down and unable to get back up again. When you start, spend 1-2 minutes upside down. You can gradually increase the time you spend in the inverted position. However, experts explain that it’s not about how much time you spend hanging upside down that has the benefits. It’s about how frequently you do it. Inversion therapy is also good for tense back and neck muscles.
20. Biohacking your workout routine
We know that exercise is good for you. It released endorphins and serotonin and gives you that post-workout ‘high.’ It’s good for your heart and muscles as well. And it helps you to lose weight.
You can apply biohacking to your workout routine as well. It involves a lot of effort to get it right. You need to track how often you work out, what times you work out, and what exercises you do in each workout session. This allows you to figure out the optimal time to work out and how often you need to work out. Tracking your exercises helps you to determine which exercises are the most beneficial for your body.
This biohacking method means that you have to experiment a lot with your workout routine to calculate what works for you and your body. Then you can determine an exact workout schedule and routine, so you can make the most of the time you spend exercising. You might come up with a variety of workouts which you can rotate so that your routine doesn’t become too repetitive and boring.
Always remember to include breathing exercises in your workout routine. It’s essential to supply your muscles with enough oxygen when exercising to prevent injury.
