Fit-FRI-YAY Friday Workout Motivation

Happy Friday!! Let’s make it a FITNESS Friday!

Don’t skimp out on a workout— try this quick easy workout you can do ANYWHERE! YES—No Excuses!

I also wanted to take some time to REGENERATE—This is so important to do for our mind and body! Carrying around stress day in and day out, not only is harmful to our emotional state, but is harmful to our physical state as well. Stress can be the reason you are carrying around that extra 10 pounds! We need to focus on the emotional as well as the physical state of our bodies to live healthy sustainable lifestyles. So keep reading–or better yet–read the mindset strategies while planking!! >>>

This Friday is all about the CORE—And best part is: It’s only repeat list ONCE! Give it a try:

30 crunches

15 Pushups

1 Minute Plank

30 Sec Side Plank (30 on each side)

1 Minute Bridge

15 Pushups

1 Minute Plank

30 Sec Side Plank (30 on each side)

Make sure to leave me a comment if you gave it a try! I would love to hear how the workout was.

As far as MINDSET: Here are some tips from EXOS that I highly recommend giving a try this weekend:

PAUSE >>>>Pause your mental and physical activity the moment you recognize stress signals.

BREATHE >>>>Slow down, take a break from what you are doing, and listen.
Breathe deep into your belly and slow your inhale and exhale. Practice relaxation breathing: Inhale for 6, hold for 4, and exhale for 10. 

GO NARROW, GO WIDE>>>>Go Narrow: For 30 seconds, close your eyes and become aware of your internal sensations. Go Wide: For 30 seconds, open your eyes and pay attention to all external stimuli. Repeat 2 more times to cultivate self-awareness.

MOVE>>>>Go out for a walk- clear your mind. Grab a tennis ball and knead out the tension underneath your feet.

CONNECT>>>>Reach out. Find someone you trust to talk
about your concerns. Stay constructive. Complaining will only cause more frustration and discontent.

REGENERATE>>>>Pause and breathe: Inhale for 6, hold for 4,
exhale for 10. Use a massage ball or foam roller to smooth out those nagging knots. Lightly stretch the muscles you massaged.

Have a great weekend!! TGIF –
