Because we all deserve to look good, feel good, and live a long happy life with those that we love.
STEP 1: MAKE SURE TO HAVE THE RIGHT GEAR.
This truly can make or break your workout.
I’m obsessed with all things NIKE, and their newest member to the family doesn’t disappoint.
The NIKE LUNAREPIC FLYKNIT is the perfect shoe for any workout. It’s light weight and snug fit set the bar very high, and truly take your workout to a level that is out of this world.
STEP 2: STRETCH!
I preach stretching at any opportunity because it will save your body from serious damage, and keep your progressing flowing in an upwards direction.
The NIKE LUNAREPIC FLYKNIT perfectly hugs your foot and compresses your ankle to guarantee that your agility and support find a beautiful marriage, and further protect your body.
15 minutes of stretching will save your body, and is necessary before any workout in my professional opinion.
STEP 3: WARM UP YOUR BODY
Once your body is loose and limber, running at about 70% for 5-10 minutes will get your juices pumping, start a healthy sweat, and get your body truly ready for a kickass workout.
Again, I’m going to stress the importance of the right gear because as anyone who has ever gone for a run will tell you, the right or wrong shoe can add serious benefits, or create serious problems.
The NIKE LUNAREPIC FLYKNIT has an incredibly firm, yet soft and comfortable bottom that will keep your knees happy, your shins far away from splinting, and your feet feeling airy. These are hard things to find in one shoe, and the LUNAREPIC FLYKNIT totally knocks it out of the park.
STEP 4: ISOMETRICS AND BODYWEIGHT RESISTANCE TRAINING
A lot of people think you have to go to the gym to have an epic workout. This simply isn’t true. As long as you have your body, you can workout just about anywhere.
I’m a huge fan of isometrics and bodyweight resistance training because these type of workouts eliminate the need for equipment (and excuses), make your body the ultimate tool, and create a truly efficient and functional body.
Sure looking like a tank is cool, but you should be able to get your arms above your head, and be able to touch your toes with ease.
Exercises like push-ups, triceps dips, mountain climbers, and side planks are moves that will hit multiple body parts at once, and deliver an incredible burn. Remember that that burn is your body’s way of saying change is happening.
Enjoy the burn, welcome the burn, embrace the burn!
Play around with these type of moves consistently for about 45 minutes to an hour, and you will see results happen quickly.
STEP 5; WARM DOWN AND STRETCH AGAIN.
Your body just did some hardcore stuff, so let it breathe and cool down.
Stretching after a workout will help keep your muscles loose, blood flowing, and slow your heart rate down in a truly healthy and necessary way.
I recommend a solid 10-15 minutes of stretching here to keep injuries down, improvement up, and you feeling grateful for what you just accomplished.
