MINIS final copy

RECOVER YOUR FEET

Check out this new video in my warm-up/ recovery series. This one is for FEET… a highly neglected, yet extremely important area of the body. You can repair and avoid common feet and ankle problems with a pair of MINIS™ and these simple exercises.

I did a product review last fall and have NOT STOPPED using them!!, PLUS my clients testimonies after prepping the feet before workout/ running or after long days on their feet are insane! I’ll share the testimonies soon, but for now you can trust me and get your hands on a set of MINIS™ $24

RUTHERFORD HEART WALK

It was such an honor to participate in the Rutherford Heart Walk and represent St. Thomas Rutherford Hospital Wellness Center this year!  I led the warm-up for the group and they were all so awesome, energetic and so happy to be there!!!  We had beautiful weather and it was just a great day to be active for a great cause.

The Heart Walk is the American Heart Association’s premiere event for raising funds to save lives from this country’s No. 1 and No. 5 killers – heart disease and stroke. Designed to promote physical activity and heart-healthy living, the Heart Walk creates an environment that’s fun and rewarding for the entire family.  heartwalk.org

For those of you who are new to TYE4, I hope you had a chance to get comfortable in it during Day 1. The morning warm-up wakes up the body, initiates circulation allowing oxygen to start moving, and is the ultimate ‘Morning stretch’ – PERFECT way to start your day!

The evening session serves a sightly different purpose:

•  To open up and stretch the chest and shoulder muscles that have been shortened throughout the day, pulling the head forward from our technology lifestyle
•  To lengthen the hamstrings, releasing back stress
•  To move hormones caused by stress from the day out of the body faster. This results in better sleep… which leads to faster muscle repair… which gets you closer to your goals! IT’S SO GOOD!

So good, in fact, that we are repeating the same routine for DAY 2! This time, think about WHY you are doing the TYE4 warmup.

Reach farther, go deeper and feel the muscles stretching!

⬇ DAY 2 ASSIGNMENT ⬇

1. First thing in the morning, follow the 8 minute warm-up video below.

2. Last thing before going to bed, follow the same 8 minute warm-up video.

I hope you are feeling great from the past few days. Now it’s time to start layering on!

WORKOUT FOR DAY 3

• Start with warm-up video [8 min 52 sec]
• Next, do the balance video [5 min 21 sec]
• And end with the shoulder workout [this is only 1 min 33 sec… this is a good amount of time isolating the shoulders, but push yourself and do more reps than I instruct if you can]
Find a time in your day to devote 15 minutes to these sets. It won’t hurt to continue using the warm-up first thing in the morning and right before bed, but that would be extra
Continue in your regular workouts if you have any. These TYE4 warmups will set you up for better and safer workouts!
