Minute Daily Fitness Challenge Week 4

Minute Daily Fitness Challenge Week 4

Time to tighten those laces 👟 for this week's one minute exercise challenge! This week we are going to do a full body exercise and the advanced version has some plyometrics for an added benefit! 
BURPEES 🙌
I have a love/hate relationship with burpees. They are great for you but let's face it, they're not easy. If you don't know what a burpee is...just check out the video demos. Good thing there are plenty of ways to modify them to your level. Do your best. If you can't make it one minute, stop when you need to. Hopefully by the end of the week you'll be able to hit one minute! If you hit one minute and you feel good, you're not working hard enough so bump it up to the next level up.
If you're just tuning in, I am doing daily 1️⃣ minute exercise challenges. The exercise differs each week and targets a different muscle group. 💪🏻💥
Follow along in my Instagram and Facebook stories and join me on this journey to a stronger YOU!

📍Don't forget to turn on your post notifications to stay in the loop so you don't miss out on the next exercise!

Importance of Recovery

Importance of Recovery

When weekend is packed with activities and things to do, any time of year or when you are on vacation, it is a great time to give yourself some recovery days. Sleep in a bit and take a break from working out every now and then.

Would it surprise you to know that in The Refine YOU Program, I make sure that clients are getting enough rest? Some of my clients are often surprised that they are exercising LESS while in my program and they are getting better results!

Here's why...
📌Rest prevents Injury
📌Muscle Recovery- When you lift weight you are basically tearing muscle fibers and you body needs time for them to repair and this allows your muscle to grow
📌Rest helps you sleep better
📌Rest helps you burn FAT- If you do not allow your body enough rest and recovery your immune system can get too stressed out which will make you STORE fat and not burn it.

So don't feel bad about not getting to the gym every single day and enjoy the rest and recovery!
