Originally, I was planning on going for a nice cardio workout on a Thursday night. However, when I got home, I realized that I wanted to change it up and do something different.
Lately, I’ve been focusing on strengthening my core, but I have also been missing stretching like crazy! You might laugh, but one of my biggest fears, as a former gymnast, is not to be able to do a split one day! I KNOW! But I guess, c’est la vie and I’ve got to live with it.
Here is me trying to get some stretching done with Bella by my side. Isn’t she adorable?!
So back to my story. Since I wanted to do something for my core and stretch at the same time, I figured that doing some yoga would satisfy all of my needs.
I started off with this Crazy Core Building Routine with Tara Stiles. It definitely got my blood flowing!
Once I was all sweaty and ready for some serious stretching, I did the following Ultimate Stretch Yoga Routine.
As you can see, my workout was short and sweet and I have no regrets!
What are your favorite ways to stretch and how do you incorporate it throughout the week?
