Good morning #fitfam ☀️ Today I want to talk about one of the reasons people don’t continue to workout and it’s because they’re TOO SORE😱 Yes this is a thing and it makes sense for someone who is new to working out or even someone that does a very intense way of working out that their body is not used to. So today I want to give you all a couple tips on how to counteract the muscle soreness and even body aches! And yes I am encouraging you to LISTEN to your body, not ignore it and push through the aches, pains, and soreness. Even a year ago I would have never given this advice, because I did not follow it myself, or care for my body the way I do now.
1) Foam Roll, if you don’t have one, most gyms do or get yourself one online. You can get a regular one, or one with bumps to get even deeper. You can foam roll pretty much any part of your body, your quads, hammies, adductors, IT band, glutes, calves, and back (if you would like me to post on how to foam roll all of the areas comment below or shoot me a DM).
2) YOGA🧘🏼♀️🧘🏻♂️ I have come to LOVE yoga and the way it helps my #mindbodyandsoul To sit in silence with myself and my never ending thoughts used to scare the absolutely crap out of me. But the more I have #meditated the more I have truly enjoyed yoga. To supplement your workouts and sore muscles I recommend #restorativeyoga or #gentleyoga
3) Epsom Salt!!! Your girl over here is an #empath and a #pisces so to get me out of a bath is merely impossible. Epsom salt baths are a beautiful way to relax, get rid of toxins, and help those sore muscles recover. There are also a couple things you can do during this time! Try meditating, reading a book, or listening to a podcast. If sitting in a bath for awhile is uncomfortable start with 10 minutes and work your way up to at least soaking for 20 minutes 2-3x a week🛁
4) If your budget allows for it, get yourself a massage because you DESERVE it hunny! This will not only help with sore muscles, but also relaxing the mind, and tuning into the divine as well🙏🏼
I hope this post helps all of my beautiful followers✨#foamroller #foamrolling #yoga #yogaroutine #raiseyourvibration #epsomsalt #epsomsaltbath #vibratehigher
