As we continue to navigate this new year, we look forward to new changes. But, nothing will magically change if we don’t do something to reach our new goals. At this point, we may have made some resolutions and have likely already given them up.
We understand that even though things are looking up and we have renewed hope with a new year, things are still unpredictable and a little bit scary. It will still take time, and realistically, things will never “go back to normal.” Our challenge now is to redefine what our new normal is.
We also know, without a doubt, that taking care of yourself is so important right now. Being fit and improving your body composition reduces your risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and a plethora of other preventable diseases. Working out also improves your mental health and reduces stress, anxiety, and depression.
We have done everything we can to alleviate any excuse you may have. We’ve made it as easy as we can to help you get up and moving towards the goals you have. At Recursive, we have a lot of options to help every level of athlete with a variety of goals. We can even do that at our facility or in the comfort of your own home!
Two Week At Home Workouts
Just because you are at home doesn’t mean you can’t get great workouts! You don’t need any special equipment, just a “get after it” attitude. Our workouts really are for anyone, and we’ll prove it to you! Any movement we do can be modified for each person’s needs. Each day, you will receive an email with the daily workout and a video that will walk you through each of the movements.
12 Minute Core Series
Your body’s core— the abdomen, obliques, lower back, inner and outer thigh, and glutes are hugely important to almost everything we do any given day. Think of your core muscles as that sturdy central trunk connecting the upper and lower limbs. A strong core enhances posture, balance and stability. Your core helps to stabilize the spine and pelvis. This means that everyday activities like walking, sitting and standing are all tasks that activate the core. A strong core helps to keep your spine erect and your hip bones in a neutral position.
Basic Yoga for Athletes
The primary reason for this yoga series is mobility. Keeping openness in the lower back and hips, especially, prevents injuries in the knees and spine. Another benefit is mental resilience. Yoga helps athletes harness the power of their minds which has a lot of benefits in making it through tough workouts. Yoga helps reduce stress and increase energy levels which is a positive way to keep on track with coming back to the gym day after day. Plus, yoga right after a workout prevents soreness by stretching and restoring the muscles before lactic acid effects set in.
