I started the day with a quick High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workout from Fitness Blender. Really built a nice sweat, and worked all the major muscles in less than 15 minutes.
Next up was a full body vinyasa yoga practice by another great YouTube Yogi, Ali Kamenova. Some of the poses are a bit challenging, but you can modify to suit your ability. I was a sweaty mess after this routine, but my whole body felt great afterwards. She focuses a lot on abs in this routine, so it’s a nice practice if you are looking to work that midsection.
Today’s smoothie is simple, refreshing, and really orange.
