My life ain’t a race… 

 

Throughout the years I’ve learned that it’s useless to keep going and train while been sick.
My life ain’t a race, it’s more like a journey.

True fact: I need to repeat 3 times to truly believe it and slow down!

Meanwhile here’s some tricks to get back on track “quickly”:

  1. Make sure to keep yourself hydrated.  Drink  enough water, broth or hot herbal tea. Try to stay away from alcohol or coffee as they may dehydrate you.
  2. Get some rest, listento your body and  do nothing. Get your Netflix on and relax.
  3. Gargling with salted water. Drop 1/2tsp of salt in 250ml of warm water. Will help to make your sore throat feel better and prevent further infection.
  4. Take your daily dose Vitamin C and multivitamins.

So let’s rest… the gym will still be there once I get better… Right?

Until next time LuzFitFam,

Much love

Get Fit & #Shine DAY 06

Hi All,

Today is an other well deserved REST DAY or light cardio!

LF_GetFit_006_A

Rest is physically necessary so that the muscles can repair, rebuild and strengthen. Continuous workouts without rest will actually make us weaker, not stronger! It also helps maintaining a better balance between home, work and fitness goals.

Keep your diet clean and Stay focus.  We will be back stronger tomorrow! See you then.

Meanwhile, if you feel sore, read why it’s normal here.

Love,

Josee

Make sure to get your timer ready.

Check HERE if you dont have a GymBoss or an app on your phone.

This is the setup we will need:

Lets do this! 6 exercises: 45 seconds of doing as many repetitions as you can and 15 seconds of rest. Within those 45 seconds however, you are going all out. The exercises should be hard enough so you sweat, but easy enough so you can last the whole circuit.

ARMS & CORE WORKOUT

  • I-   JUMPING JACKS

  • II-  WALKOUT & PUSH UPS

  • III- LATERAL RAISE

  • IV- BIRD DOG

  • V-  SHOULDER PRESS

  • VI- DECLINE PUSH UPS

I know I’m repeating myself but, don’t forget to have your bottle of water, warm up before and stretch after the workout. This type of exercise is extremely demanding, and should not be executed every day until you feel that your body is ready to do so. Also remember that nutrition plays an important role. Lean proteins, whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and healthy fats are important to a balanced diet and get lean.

Let me know if you have any questions

 It’s time to sweat and shine.

Love,

Josee
