Welcome to today’s workout! This is a fantastic total body workout routine. This workout will strengthen your muscles from every angle, in every plane of motion.
The compound exercises in this routine will recruit muscles in every plane of movement. Be sure to focus on form, while still getting in as many reps as possible during this interval.
Remember to support your workouts with nutrient dense foods, including whole grains and plenty of vegetables. Stay hydrated, and fuel your body to keep yourself feeling happy and healthy.
At the beginning of this year I set a goal for myself to complete a daily meditation. I want this year to be focused on creating a happy and healthy balance physically, mentally and emotionally.
For me that means re-focusing on what I need physically, mentally and emotionally. Exercise, nutrition and meditation are really helping me to find that balance, and to have more energy throughout the day.
Prior to filming today’s workout I was feeling exhausted. My sinuses go crazy at this time of year, and my head was full of pressure. By the end of the workout, I felt great. It’s amazing how much a workout can change your energy and mood.
For those of you who have been following my workouts for a while, you are already familiar with my 5-minute rule. If I am super tired, and really don’t want to do a workout: I give myself permission to quit my workout after 5-minutes.
I have never actually quit after 5-minutes. Sometimes, just getting myself started is the hard part.
I don’t workout if I am super sick (the flu or any type of chest congestion), but my sinuses and the related headache pressure typically respond well to a good workout. Remember, always listen to your body, but this technique can help you push through on the days when working out is mentally challenging.
Have fun and get sweaty! Let me know what you think of this week’s workout routines!
