To stay consistent with scheduled workouts at the park (Monday, Wednesday, & Friday) we will utilize a 3 on, 1 off, 2 on, 1 off for each week. Thursdays and Sundays will always be rest days. Use the Saturday workouts to incorporate the entire family.
Hopefully you are having a positive experience with the workouts. Taking the time to keep yourself physically active is crucial to maintaining good health. There are many physical benefits to exercise. There are also numerous studies that would indicate there are real emotional benefits to exercise. Without going into too much detail, hormones that enduce positive feelings are released when we exercise.
In the coming weeks, we will post information on nutrition. Nutrition is the single most important component of living healthy. What we put in our bodies induces chemical changes (just like drugs). We must understand what different types of foods do to us so we can make better choices about how we eat.
Enjoy your rest day. If your sore from yesterdays workout try to go on a walk to get the blood flowing. Stay away from anti-inflamatory medications like motrin. This inhibits your muscles from repairing themselves. If your not sore from yesterday then you didn’t push yourself hard enough;)
See you Friday at the park!!!!
