A Workout For Every Mood!
Tailored just for you, girl! ;)
There’s no getting around it — sometimes you’re just not feelin’ a HIIT workout. All that jumping seems like too much. And other days, you’ve had some coffee and getting zen at yoga sounds impossible. The thing is, it’s totally okay to tailor your workouts to your mood! Swapping strength for cardio is a-okay if you’re filled to the brim with energy and vice versa if you’d rather be more mellow.
Here’s the best way to sweat in every situation. Just think of this as your workout mood ring!
When you’re feeling…
Then get with HIIT girl!! High intensity interval training requires lots of energy with limited rest between moves to boost metabolism. So if you’re bouncin’ off the walls, use that for your Booty Call! The new HIIT & Abs routine is a must try! You can find it in the new BODY LOVE workouts!!
If you’ve had a bad day or you’re feeling a little overwhelmed, strength training is the way to go. Studies show that there are high levels of an enzyme called KAT (yeah, it’s really called that!) in well-trained muscles. This enzyme converts a substance formed under stress, called kynurenine, into kynurenic acid, which reduces the effects of anxiety on your brain. Kat’s favorite upper body gym workout is #perf for this. Try it out here!
Calm vibes mean it’s time to hit the yoga mat! We love yoga for its versatility. It can be an incredible toning experience or it can focus on stretching and relaxation. The choice is yours! Either way, you’re going to be one with your zen self. For a toning yoga sesh, try Tone, Burn, & Flow from the Premium Workouts. If you want a lil’ more stretching, go for Karena’s Stretching Routine.
Nervous about a big presentation or meeting with your boss? Lace up your sneakers and hit the pavement! One study found that consistent running can boost your levels of GABA, a neurotransmitter associated with decreased anxiety and stress. Head out for a 30-minute walk or jog when nerves strike!
