// COOL DOWN: Stretching routine post workout ✨💕⚡️🏋🏽♀️ // .
✔️Flexibility isn't really my strong suit🙈 I probably have the tightest hamstrings in the world 🙄🙄 But that's ok, because I'll workout towards it 👊🏽👊🏽
✔️Stretching is super important AFTER a workout and it's also really bad for you before a workout (before a workout you have to do more dynamic stretches to warm up but that's a topic for another day)💪🏽
✔️Post workout stretching sessions are great for increasing flexibility which in turn will help you during your workouts to attain proper form and allow proper range of motion🏋🏽♀️
✔️Stretching sessions also help prevent and reduce post workout soreness and improve circulation and help you with recovery🤕
✔️A stretching session post workout will help bring down your heart rate gradually which is MUCH better for you then an immediate decrease by walking out 👅
✔️DO NOT miss out on your post workout stretches !!! 🙅🏼
Hope this helps! Dm me for any queries or any topics you want me to discuss, I'm here to help🙋🏼
Started off my first day of freedom with these oats ✨🍫
Yes, this is what I've eaten everyday for breakfast for the past few months 😋 I'm a big believer that it's 100% possible to have a healthy diet without cutting out all your fave foods. Restriction is never the way to go! 🙅🙆
I bet if we could see them, endorphins would look like happy bubbles 😃! After two weeks of virtually no exercise due to flu/asthma/chest infection ick, I walked 5km to & from gym and had an hour or so of weights and feel so much better about life in general ☺ though sleeeeepy 😌. Just in time too because I was starting to resemble a grasshopper again (no gains 😕😂) so back on the #strongnotskinny mission, yewww 🙌💪! #postworkout#shelifts#fitmums#fitness
Le bonheur de remanger normalement 🙌🏻❤️ J'ai décidé de réduire les quantités pour ne pas surcharger mon estomac qui met énormément de temps à faire son boulot. Je suis un ventre sur pattes et meme en mangeant sainement, je pense que je lui menais La vie dure 😄 Ce midi c'est donc ratatouille maison + tofu au curry 🍛👌🏻
Changed plans and went for an outdoor cardio session this morning, a fast paced walk around Southsea, keeping my heart rate between 135-145bpm as much as possible to optimise fat utilisation. Finished with an awesome beetroot and a acai berry latte from @homecoffeesouth and followed by a post workout breakfast of oats, frozen blueberries, Half a peach and @fage total yoghurt.
Looking for a good time under tension exercise? Try holding a chin up position for as long as possible while someone takes a picture haha! 😂 But in all seriousness... consuming a high quality protein source (such as whey) following a workout can majorly assist with muscle growth, repair and recovery! 💪 Here are a few reasons why whey protein powder is one of the most effective protein sources in supporting muscle growth following resistance training:
1.) Whey is a "fast digesting" protein, meaning it can be quickly absorbed into the bloodstream and delivered to your muscles immediately following exercise. Because of this, it can help to induce muscle protein synthesis FASTER than a protein source such as chicken, eggs, beef or tofu, which are all digested more slowly.
2.) Whey is a "complete protein" meaning it contains all eight essential amino acids, which are all required to induce muscle protein synthesis.
3.) Whey is particularly high in the amino acid leucine, which is the primary amino acid responsible for inducing muscle protein synthesis. Leucine also assists in triggering the anabolic hormone insulin from the pancreas, and insulin is responsible for shuttling amino acids into your muscle cells in order to grow, repair and recover.
Research has shown that you only need 20 grams of whey protein following a workout in order to maximally induce muscle protein synthesis, so now the only question is which flavour should you choose? I'm a vanilla girl myself 😛🍦 Oh, and by the WHEY, you can use my discount code "TYARRA" for a sneaky 10% off your purchases from @bulkpowdersau !
