Not every workout needs to be hard as hell, lungs a blazzin, can’t breath, sweating your buns off, push it to the limits and lift heavy as possible. I always give myself at least one or two days day a week of active recovery. I get in the gym and focus on movement. A low intensity workout that includes mobility, stretching, core and a few exercises strung together and done at a moderate pace. Here’s an example:
EMOM x30 (5 total rounds)
Minute 1- :45 bike (or run/row/jump rope)
Minute 2- 15 Kettlbell Swings
Minute 3- :30 Alternating Single Leg V-Ups
Minute 4- :45 Side Plank (right)
Minute 5- :45 Side Plank (left) .
You might choose yoga 🧘🏼♀️ or biking or walking. Do something active but not your usual routine that includes the heavy strength training. Let your body actively rest for a few days a week. If you’re not someone who usually stretches and works on your range of motion (mobility) this might be something you need to focus on more. Add it in! It will decrease the risk of injury and you’ll overall feel way better! .

Kids are back in school 🙌
Summer s’mores and too much 🍕🍦🍭are winding down 👋

So what are we going to do about it? What ACTION PLAN are we taking?
Doing nothing is moving backwards....doing even one little thing is moving forward!
