Do: Exercise

Keeping your feet healthy helps you avoid developing common foot problems like athlete’s foot, ingrown toenails, blisters and calluses. Good blood circulation also helps prevent skin infections such as fungal infections (athlete’s foot) that are caused by fungus. If you develop a skin problem in your feet, consult a medical professional right away. People who wear no-show socks on a regular basis should get pedicures once every three to four weeks to remove buildup between their toes (although some podiatrists suggest more frequent visits). Wash your feet daily: Anybody can develop foot odor if their shoes aren’t washed regularly, but it is especially important for people who use no-show socks all day.



Do: Vary Your Exercises

This can be done in many ways. You can use a variety of exercises, such as lifting weights, running, swimming or playing a sport. This will help reduce boredom. You can vary your repetitions as well – do 8 to 10 reps on some days, then 12 to 15 on others. You could also try switching up your workout schedule – working out at a different time of day (or night) each day is an effective way to break through plateaus. Another great variation is changing your workout location – go from gym to home gym to outdoors, for example. Mixing things up is often more effective than doing more of what you already know how to do.



Do: Massage & stretch your feet daily

If you’re going to be wearing no show socks for most of your day, it helps to have flexible feet. Massaging your feet daily can help build strong muscles that support healthy posture, reduce risk of injury and improve mobility. You can massage your feet at home or visit a spa for a professional massage that incorporates foot reflexology techniques. While there are tons of massaging options available on Amazon, I recommend using oils such as peppermint oil or lavender essential oil because they're easy to use. Add 10 drops each into about 4 tablespoons of vegetable or coconut oil (or use grapeseed or jojoba) and stir until mixed well before massaging into your feet at night before bedtime. Use an electric heating pad if you'd like too!



Don’t: Worry about how you look in the gym

There are two important things that you want to keep in mind: A) your own perception is more important than everyone else’s; B) you only get one shot at a first impression. Therefore, no matter how attractive you think your socks are, if they don’t match your shoes or won’t stay up, chances are good that no one will notice them in a positive way. Wearing colourful socks just for colour won’t do anything for you. Find something sturdy enough to support your feet while also complementing other items in your wardrobe or being colourful enough that they can stand on their own. If they can meet both of these requirements, then there’s a good chance that you can use them in most situations with confidence.



Don’t: Skimp on warm up/ cool down stretches

You know how important warming up and cooling down are, but with a sport like running you’ve probably done plenty of both at some point or another. That being said, it’s just as important not to skip them on rest days. Going from a standing start to your full sprint or speed walk pace takes time for your body to adjust—the same is true when you cut back from that same pace. Skipping these vital steps could lead to issues like runner’s knee or Achilles tendinitis. For example, you might be better off going for a brisk walk instead if you need an active recovery day after an intense session.



Don’t: Only use weight machines

Weight machines offer a limited range of movement, can be uncomfortable on your joints, and can cause injury if you’re not careful. Look for exercises that use more than one muscle group at a time—pushups, pull-ups, squats. They’ll give you an all-over workout without putting undue stress on any particular part of your body. You can also try some high intensity interval training (HIIT) which involves doing an activity really hard for 10-30 seconds followed by a rest period anywhere from 30 to 90 seconds as you repeat it a few times. HIIT is great because it gets your heart rate up fast so that you burn more calories in less time while improving your endurance too!



Don’t: Neglect conditioning exercises like jumping jacks, burpees, and skipping rope.

They might seem like elementary moves, but bodyweight exercises are just as important as they ever were. According to a study conducted by Strength & Conditioning Journal, incorporating these types of exercises into your workout routine will greatly increase functional movement patterns. If you’re trying to lose weight, it’s a good idea to make sure you condition your body regularly with complex movements that strengthen all muscle groups. You can do these two or three times per week on non-consecutive days.
