Welcome to this week’s workout schedule! I hope you are ready to have a wonderful week of exercises to make you stronger and healthier. I have selected 5-workouts to share this week. This is a balanced, Total Body workout schedule.
This routine combines strengthening, stretching and endurance. It will help you to improve your health and fitness in all areas. Functional fitness helps to prepare you for anything and everything life might throw your way. When you are physically healthy it allows you to participate in, and enjoy life more thoroughly.
Nutrition: Goals for this week.
1. Stay hydrated. Be sure you are drinking enough water on a daily basis.
2. Eat your veggies/colors. Eating a variety of different colored vegetables means that you are consuming a wider range of nutrients. Aim to eat between 2.5-3 cups of vegetables on a daily basis.
Challenge Yourself: A huge part of training is being able to push yourself. It is important to learn to connect with your body in order to recognize when you can push a little bit harder, and when you need rest. A huge part of your health is mental. You need to find a balance in life and exercise.
I have been posting daily workout challenge bonus exercises on Instagram. It’s an easy way to stay motivated and get in some extra movement each day. On a personal level, I have also been challenging myself to go outside of my comfort zone and practice more arm balances and yoga moves.
The practice of yoga is where my love of fitness first started, and I have really enjoyed getting back to my roots. It has been good for me physically and mentally. It is good for your mind and body to try new things. It helps prevent stagnation in your life and workouts. It is also mentally refreshing to see yourself progressing in areas, or poses, that once seemed impossible.
As you progress through this week, I encourage you to check in and let me know how you are doing. It will help you stay accountable, and links you to a supportive community. This will help you stay on track.
I look forward to working out with you. Let me know how you like this week’s schedule.
