For Years its Been Considered Standard to See Your Doc at Least Once a Year for a Physical (pic courtesy of healthgrades.com)

Although I haven’t put any new workout related articles on the site for a while now, I wanted to take a moment to touch on your overall health.  While diet and exercise are paramount to living a long and fulfilling life, there are some things you can take advantage of from the medical profession to help stack odds in your favor. 

Surprisingly, while doing some research for this article, I found that in recent years there has been some banter about whether a yearly physical is even useful in preventing health issues.  I am not a Dr. so I don’t feel I have any business telling you it works or it doesn’t.  What I did find in most of the discussions I read, that regardless of the benefits or hazards of testing your vitals or having blood work completed, they all agreed you should at a minimum establish a relationship with your primary care physician.

In that spirit, I would encourage all you to reach out to your primary care physician.  If you don’t have one, now would be a great time to establish one.  Find out what their stance is on yearly checkups and schedule accordingly.  We’re only allowed so many hunting seasons so why not try and put as many as you can under your belt while you’re here.
