Q: WHAT IS ACTIVE RECOVERY?!? .
.
A: of course by the word “active”, you can assume you’re probably moving or in some kind of motion, right? .
.
Active recovery IS essentially jus THAT ⬆️- but even more so, active recovery means moving in a way that promotes recovery rather than intensity.
.
.
Generally, an active recovery workout or exercise just means less volume (or load) and less intensity. .
.
The purpose of active recovery is to help muscles to repair themselves from tougher workouts- such as weight training, kickboxing, or any other intense sesh!
.
.
It’s important to incorporate active recovery days into your weekly routine when your muscles are feeling sore or tired. However: not all active recovery has to mean simply just walking or doing yoga (playing with your dogs or kids can be great active recovery days, too!) .
.
You can certainly do the activities mentioned above , by all means- but if ya wanna mix it up, try these lower-impact exercises such as the ones shown in my video here: jumping jacks, butt kickers, and “slow”-skaters. .
.
Take a look 👀 for yourself & read along with the tips in the video of why these are great active recovery exercises and less boring than steady state cardio on a treadmill! .
.
Looking for more intense workouts?! Don’t worry! I have plenty on my #IGTVChannel! Let me know if you try them! 💪🏽😈

Having fun in the sun! Having an active lifestyle means my daily activities mostly imply moving! .
Changing my lifestyle was a PROCESS! I started with working out, then nutrition and now I'm just active everyday! I enjoy moving and my family and friends love it too! .

My babes 😍 Adventuring and exploring the mornings away

On Saturdays we dress ↟
.
.
I have been to a lot of weddings in this dress.......Think it’s time to retire this ole glory. 😉
.
Now I finally get to start planning my own wedding. Spoiler alert 🚨 I won’t be wearing this one.
.
.
Upcycling this dress by sending it in a #cleanoutkit to @thredup so someone else can wear it to a wedding. 😂Or ya know wherever.

Our Busy Babes are learning to post all kinds of shapes and sizes! This age group ( 9 to 12 months ) is where I get to see my weeks of REPEAT REPEAT REPEAT actually "Click" and these babies recognise the song, the action, the movement my bunny and my face and their excitement, EXCITES ME! #Cleverlittlebunnies #jointhefun #busybabes

This weekend certainly hasn’t gone like I’d expected but we’ve enjoyed it none he less. Exploring this morning and play date this afternoon #lovesummer #simpledays

This was so good it deserved a page post 😂 omg I love them so much. (Pssst @danieoceann Is the she ! 🤣)

3 week progress say WHAT ⠀

Okay STOP waiting and start doing. These progress photos are coming in after only 2-3 weeks doing our #summershred test group and they are LIT 🔥😍⠀

I’ve literally fallen in love with this workout program because of the ease it fits into my schedule. The workouts are only 30. freaking. minutes. And you only have to do 4 a week. 4. ⠀

Results like these are coming from working out 4 days a week, 30 minutes a day. 😍⠀

How much better would you be if you had started 3 weeks ago?!⠀

Applications for our August #busybabes bootcamp are OPEN- we are starting up a round numba dos and it is YOUR CHANCE. ⠀

Another day @ the gym, another day working my ass off to get where I want to be. 🙌🏼 I legit woke up this morning so excited because it’s August 1st- which means registration is open for my #busybabes online bootcamp! Honestly the only way I can keep up with my own health is with these online bootcamps. Specifically designed workouts, personalized meal plans, and one on one coaching with me. (for less $$ than a gym membership. for reals.) ⠀

Application in my bioooo 👆🏻 #workouttoeat #collegebabes #healthyish #collegefitness #coffeeholics

Some days I tell ya... it’s a god thing they’re cute 💕🙄

Good morning, readers! We’re so excited to share our August book choice with you! Swipe right to reveal... #BWOB #bookclub #reading #august #busybabes

Seriously so proud of my little man, he decided he was done with diapers and after one day of discovering what was going on with his body he figure things out and is now totally done with diapers, including night time! 💃 which also means I just tied my last diaper genie bag EVER LOL #soproud #pottytraining #nomorediapers

Hey Y’all! I’m Megan - your second BWOB host! Avanti and I started this insta book club because after years of sharing book recommendations (creating the longest reading-wishlist ever) with the occasional complaints from me about the lack of fun book clubs/non-interaction platforms/too many obligations required for in-person clubs... We decided to take it in to our own hands, hence -BWOB. We want this to be fun, relaxing, interesting but most importantly - a great way to connect with friends & family (as well as friends of friends of friends, etc.). I am so excited to talk about the books (it’s truly one of my favorite things to do), so let’s get reading & have some laughs! And maybe a little bit of wine... 😏 #BWOB #reading #busybabes #bookclub

Hello babes!! I’m Avanti- one of your two hosts for BWOB. Megan and I have been working together in DC for two years and have wanted to join a book club for so long! Only problem is- we’re both hella booked and committing to traveling to a meeting just seemed too hard. For example, I’m working full time in the sciences during the day, doing graduate school classes at night, and just trying to maintain my sanity in between 😩. So, the two of us decided to start a ~chill~ book club via Instagram instead because we can host from the comfort of our own homes (and you can join from home, too)! Reading right before bed is my favorite way to unwind. I love just getting lost in the narrative and escaping whatever stressful day I’ve had. Anyway, sorry for the word vomit! Stay tuned for Megan’s bio and our August book choice (it’s gonna be SO GOOD) #BWOB #reading #bookclub #busybabes
