Why is restoring and helping the body recover such an important part of your fitness journey? Keep reading for more on why you should be doing this weekly to get full benefit for your body!
I am starting a new class on Sunday's called Restore and Recover. So many of us go all week put stress on our body/mind whether is be working out intensly all week, working at your stressful job, sitting at your computer, taking care of your kids, and just living life. We don't take the time to let our body fully recover and restore for everything we put it thru during the week. Take 1 hour a week to treat your body and you will find that you will be able to take on the next week even stronger!!
What is the importance of Restoring the body with stretching and breathing?
-Helps with injuries, muscle tightness, and releasing lactic acid
-Decrease your risk of injuries
-Improves muscle performance during activities
-Helps with the aches and pains you can feel throughout the week that you mostly just push thru
-Helps you to turn of your brain for a little while and be in the moment, not thinking about everythying that needs done etc
-Can help to reduce blood pressure
-Just feels dang good!! Once you are done you will feel so refreshed, relaxed, and ready to take on the week!!
