Welcome to this week’s edition of Tuesday Trainer!!
This is our 22nd time doing this feature – can you believe it?!!?!? I’m always SO blown away by the support and submissions I get from you guys! I honestly never thought it would go this long, but I’ve still got some ideas churning, so we’ll see how long Tuesday Trainer can sustain! Plus, the TT button got a little makeover (thanks, Jillian!!), so I just couldn’t possibly quit anytime soon!!
The theme for this week is “My Go-To STRETCH”. I asked for “the stretch that you do most often”, and I got some really great ones!
(But look what Kristin can do!)
If you look back through the Tuesday Trainer workout archives, you’ll notice a few variables that remain constant: the warm-up/stretch and the cool down/stretch. After years of working out and pushing my body, I truly believe that we need to take the time to properly engage our muscles and slowly increase/decrease our heart rates. That’s where the warm-up and cool down come into play. As equally as important to those two elements, is STRETCHING, or Flexibility Training!
