[MP100 Figure Skating AU] - Exercise

Mob (13) and Ritsu (12) try yoga for the first time… and they’re struggling to hold their balance for more than 30 seconds. They’re getting there.

At least Reigen is giving them encouragement.

Doing yoga benefits for figure skaters as it helps with flexibility, balance, strengthen core muscles, and protection from injury. There are other benefits, but I don’t remember from the top of my head.

On Saturday I decided to start working out again. And, though it seems a bit crazy, I specifically decided I would work out every day (the reason being, I think habits are easier to break if they’re not every day). The caveat to that is, however, that I am not worrying about doing anything specific. Meeting some specific fitness goal. Just that I will exercise every day. And so far, I think that’s helped me get through it.

Yesterday I ran for 15 minutes straight. After not running for awhile and struggling a little through my 30-minute hilly run I did the other day (where I walked some of it), it felt amazing. I definitely slowed my pace down as time went on, but not terribly significantly. I was not actually keeping track, though, and I think that’s the best part.

I’m not forcing myself to meet some specific goal. I push myself hard in a lot of places in my life, so at some point, there’s an exhaustion associated with that. A sense of torture, even. What would happen if I vowed to run three days a week and didn’t feel like it one day? Most likely I would stop for a few days (or for weeks, possibly). So the fact that all I’m requiring myself to do is get out there is very relieving. And it’s made exercising feel better in a way that I think will allow me to keep the habit. I am facilitating myself to be active, and how active I am on any particular day depends on how I’m feeling. And I’m liking it.

Granted, I’m only on day 5. But there’s enough reason for me to think this will work great for me. After all, at my most fit, I worked out 6 days a week. At the least, I know I’m capable of that much.

This morning I was feeling a little sore, so I decided to just do a 4-minute POP Pilates challenge. It was super easy so I felt like I could do more, and decided to do a 10-minute POP Pilates butt workout. Even that one seemed easy, tbh! (Maybe it’s just a good day, who knows.) But the point is, I put in the time for the day, so I’m satisfied enough.

If you’re struggling trying to make a habit, perhaps consider this idea for yourself.

I created this 30 day fitness challenge to complete starting today. You can save it and print it out later. I think it is really important to begin your fitness goals before the new year, that way you will be ready and stronger by the time January 1st arrives. Do it with me!! We can do this :)

Good morning❤️


I haven’t even left for Cuba and look where my mind is☝🏼️It’s not my fault! Relative to France, there are very few photos of Cuba floating around– I plan to change that. Many, many photos will be taken.

I probably won’t be able to update here much in the next two weeks. Please forgive me🙏🏼 American phones don’t work there and wifi/Internet cafes (as I’ve been told) are scarce. I’ll do my best.

I’ll miss you!

Day #4 of 12 Days of Fitness is an Ab Challenge! It’s short but it’s intense!

anonymous asked:

Hey do you know any really intense ab workouts that I could do daily and interpret in my daily routine? I need something that really pushes me!

High intensity and daily workouts don’t go well together - if you do an intense workout, your muscles need more time to recover :)

Depending on your level, you can find some exercises here. If you prefer videos, take a look at some of these and combine them for an intense workout (you shouldn’t do daily)

Note: You can’t spot reduce which some of the channels seems to think (or want to make you think) - just ignore that part, because the workout itself is often good enough.
