Project Description

Yoga Routine

Doing yoga exercises is not only good for stretching your muscles but also strengthening them. Your muscles need to be stretched in a healthy manner in order to grow longer and stronger. In addition to relieving tension and improving your cardiovascular health, yoga can be a great workout that requires nothing but you! I have to admit, this yoga routine kicks my butt every single time but it is so worth it! Give it a try and go at your own pace!

As Long As You Want

Don’t Forget…

It is always important to remember that in order for your muscles to grow completely and efficiently, you must practice good form to avoid injury as well as good gym critique when working out. Don’t be that person who hogs the machines or rubs their sweat all over the equipment or stares awkwardly at other people while they are working out. Keep your creepy eyes on your own exquisite self, “Ya Naaaaaaaaaaaasty!” (That’s So Raven 2003).

Additionally, to accommodate the stresses you are putting on your muscles, don’t forget to get plenty of nutritious foods in your system to replenish, rebuild, and recover from your workout. Combine your lifting days with strategic nutrition and recovery time – meaning adequate SLEEP and REST – to allow your body to adapt to the new stressors and strengthen for future workouts. Take it a little at a time. It won’t get easier, but you will get stronger!
