I survived the massive task of moving!
We moved, unpacked and settled in all in one massive, M-A-S-S-I-V-E day!
Holla, go team us!
Now my body is totally telling me I need to dial things back a little. Time for a little much needed R & R.
Although I really don’t do the whole rest thing very well.
I know it’s an essential part of any sustainable fitness routine. Scratch that, it’s really an essential part of life.
Rest is so very, very important. For so many reasons both physically and mentally.
I strongly encourage you to schedule regular periods of rest, as tough as it may be its for the greater good. It’s about being the best version of you in the long term. Fit for life right?
It’s in these periods of rest and recovery that our bodies recharge, both physically and mentally. Rest days give our muscles a change to repair and rebuild which will in turn show you the results you have been working so hard to achieve.
Isn’t that part of the reason we push so hard during those workouts? To get Results? Change? Progress?
Take your time, concentrate, focus and breathe through each exercise.
Move through the exercises with little to no rest in-between (of course listen to your body if you feel like you need a second to grab a drink and catch you breath by all means do so) then savour our glorious, well earned 60 seconds rest and kick it through for our total of 4 sets.
Ok good. Let’s do it.
