7 Minute Full Body Cool Down After a Workout



 Do you cool down after your workout?

As soon as you finish your workout, it's crucial to do some cool-down exercises for at least 5 to 10 minutes, as cool down allows your heart rate and breathing to go back to normal. 

When we exercise, our body creates lactic acid ( you know that burning sensation in your last reps? that's the lactic acid). 

Stretching or cooling down cuts the lactic acid production helps remove it from your system.

Rest day 101: Why is important to have Recovery Days


The benefits of having Recovery Days

We always talk about working out, how it is necessary to exercise, how exercising will improve your life, etc. 

But exercising it's not all, it is not about working out every day of the week! 

In the same way, we need a break from social media, from working, and many other things to improve our mental health; our body and muscles also need a break. 

It is not only good for your body to take breaks in between the exercises to help you recover, but also you need a full day to rest.

When creating a workout plan, it is vital to include rest days!

As the weather changes to colder temperatures, our skin suffers from these changes too.
