July 29 – August 4, 2018
Inflammation can creep in on us. If you are working out and surviving daily stressors, inflammation can be a real challenge and can make it harder to reach your goals. This week is all about combatting inflammation.
THINGS TO PRACTICE:
1. Include anti-inflammatory foods. Controlling your diet and nutirtion intake, can be a great way to jump start your anti-inflammatory quest. Make sure to include foods that have amazing anti-inflammatory properties such as; tumeric, tart cherry juice, acai berries, antioxidant rich foods, and omega 3 fatty acid rich foods to name a few. Avoid processed, high saturated fat foods, as these can tend to promote inflammation in your body.
2. Incorporate recovery techniques surrounding your workouts. Working out hard is only half the battle, in order to come back stronger, more fit, and healthier, we need to recover well. This week incorporate a few extra recovery practices such as; yoga, foam rolling, cryotherapy, float spa, or others. Make an effort to recover with the same dedication as you put into your workouts. Listen to your body this week and give it the recovery it needs.
