Get Prepared for the #28DaysLater Challenge with These Simple, Effective Tips…
Make sure you get enough good quality sleep. Being well rested not only energizes you through every burpee or stretch but also keeps your hunger hormones in check so you aren’t undoing your efforts by overeating the rest of the day. A good sleep is also super important after exercise giving your muscles a chance to recover.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. You already know that drinking your H20 is crucial to overall health, but it plays an especially important role when you are sweating it out, make sure your body is properly hydrated since you are losing water. Staying hydrated is crucial for keeping your energy levels where they need to be.
Grab a snack. If you are not feeling a pre-workout snack, there’s no need to force food down ahead of time, but don’t ignore your body if you feel like you need some fuel. You don’t want you to be starving, but you don’t want you to be feeling full either.”
Make sure you are wearing the right clothes and footwear. Being able to move, jump, run, stretch, and get into certain positions and poses is about more than just your athletic prowess or your mobility and flexibility. It is about having the right gear for the job.
Work in a dynamic warm-up. Skipping your warm-up is a definite no-no even if your workout is only 10 minutes long. The warm-up is meant to give your body the opportunity to raise your body temperature, increase range of motion, and prepare yourself for what you’re about to do. It also helps decrease your chance of injury.
Stretch it out. A cool-down brings your body back to a resting position. Stretching may also be beneficial for joint mobility and range of motion.
Refuel with post-workout nutrition. Giving your body the fuel it needs to recover after a tough sweat is essential. After a tough workout, your body looks for carbohydrates and protein to help replenish glycogen stores and rebuild muscle, respectively, so getting your body the nutrition it needs to recover in a timely manner is important. Plus, not eating after a workout can leave you feeling ravenous later on and no one likes to be hangry and tired.
Log your workout. Keeping track of what you did will help you keep challenging yourself each time you exercise. It is also a great way to make sure that overall your workout routine is giving you what you want. Look back at what you did and how you felt while doing it and decide when it’s time to go a little heavier or a little faster or do a few more reps, or maybe when it’s time to slow down and take it a little easier. You can then look back at all the time you have put in and the progress you have made and pat yourself on the back.
We look forward to seeing your progress.
