Welcome to our workout schedule for the week! You can find the video playlist, and the individual workout breakdowns below.
We have a well rounded workout week, with a bonus focus on building a stronger core. A stronger midsection supports every exercise you do. You core helps you maintain proper form, and protects your back during exercise.
Of course, we will still be getting in an amazing Total Body Workout, over the course of the week. Each exercise routine can be completed 1-3X. Choose your number of rounds based on how you feel, and your fitness goals.
Always focus on using proper form, and modify the exercises as necessary. Sometimes, modifying is the best way to respect your body, and progress your strength and fitness.
Bonus goal this week: Do at least one activity (besides exercise) that is focused on your own self care. It can be, participating in an activity that brings you joy, getting a manicure, or taking a warm bath. Anything that makes you happy.
Often, people feel guilty for taking time to focus on their own self care. However, taking time to meet your own needs can help you to be more engaged in other areas of your life.
I have been taking time on a daily basis to meditate, and it helps me feel more present and less stressed. It’s also setting a great example for my son. When he gets angry, or hurt, he takes some deep breaths to help himself calm down. I think it’s very important to help children recognize their emotions, and also find effective ways to manage their own self regulation.
I have been amazed at how quickly Maverick picked up some of the techniques that we are teaching him. It’s never too early (or too late!) to incorporate healthy lifestyle changes into your routine.
So many people live under the constant strain of stress. Stress has a significant, negative impact on your health and wellness. What techniques do you use to de-stress?
