Vitalize 30 Day Program Day 6

Welcome to Day 6! Today is an active rest day. It is totally up to you what you would like to do! Active rest days are amazing because you still feel like you perform some type of exercise or something good for your body versus just sitting around the house.

You have a couple options. You can do some cardio or do a complete active rest day. If you decide to do cardio, make sure it’s steady state and not to strenuous or long.

Here are some options:

  • Brisk walk
  • Foam roll
  • Stretching
  • Play a sport

All of these are great options. You can do anything just be sure that you still are giving yourself a rest 🙂

Vitalize 30 Day Program Day 5

Good Morning, Afternoon, or Evening! Today is going to be an amazing workout. The focus for today is on yoga and meditation. I’ve implemented this type of practice into the program specifically on this day for a few reasons:

  • Many people have never done yoga and this is an opportunity to discover something new!
  • Yoga has many benefits! It helps isolate muscle groups for specific contractions and stretch muscles. Let’s be honest, those legs are tight from yesterday and yoga is EXACTLY what you need!
  • Meditation is sometimes daunting or may seem pointless, but in all honesty, we all need some peaceful meditation time or some ME TIME. I’ve designed the program to incorporate some yoga/meditation today so you could take time to reflect on why you’ve decided to start this journey. Reflect and bring to mind all the positivity you are creating and continue in your amazing confidence!

 

Though I instruct and practice yoga, there is never a time where I’m not always striving to learn more and better myself. Trying something new is scary, I get it. I never went to a yoga class until my sister took me with her! For today, I’m going to encourage you to either  put yourself out there and go to a yoga class or I offer you the other option of practicing in your home. Below is a link to an amazing foundational yoga program. Adriene is such an amazing person and yogi and I love practicing with her in my home! This specific class of hers will help loosen up those hips and hamstrings that are feeling a little tight from yesterday.

 

Whatever you decide to do and whatever level you are at, pick your style, pace, and comfort zone to be you, feel good, and reflect on how amazing this day and journey is!
