How many of you are training so often through the Coronavirus pandemic you are starting to hurt? The fact is I bet loads of people have not had a training break since Christmas, and without a break, and or a change our bodies stop responding to our workouts. (Stop there and think “flexibility training”).
We are becoming physically and mentally exhausted. Our muscles are sore. We cannot lift as heavy as we could previously. However, as avid fitness minded people we are telling ourselves that keeping fit is the ONLY thing we can control while the world is in this unknown state. Fitness may also be the only thing we have for ourselves, I know this is the case for me!
The question is how we can keep going but help our bodies at the same time. The answer? Add some “flexibility training” time to your week and reap the benefits! https://skfitness.co/one-to-one-personal-training/
With our school summer break coming up I encourage you to mark out one week for recovery and de-load. Even if you are not getting that trip to the sun can you change your training? Take a break from the same old routine, add some flexibility training. The end result will bring your body back ready to work harder and raise your performance during your sessions.
You need to think does taking time to flex and stretch improve my overall performance? Without doubt the answer will be YES! So I urge you to get out your training mat, invest in a foam roller, https://originfitness.com/studio/foam-rollers or simply take 10 minutes a day to stretches. This will seriously help not just your physical but also your mental health!
Maybe it is time to add flexibility to your personal training sessions, or start a class, in times of change we have these now available to you! https://skfitness.co/testimonials/
