Fit Tip: How to Survive A Sweaty Summer Yoga Class

During the Summer, practicing yoga in an already hot and humid room can make breathing unbearable — especially when the guy next to you forgot his deodorant. If you’re not used to practicing in high temps, then you’ll need to take these precautions to get through a class without passing out. Before class: Take a shower and twirl your wet hair up in a bun. Eating cooling foods, such as salads and fruit, can also help. What to wear: Skip the cotton and wear yoga clothes made of lightweight, breathable material designed to wick moisture away from the skin. You’d think sporting less clothes, like spandex shorts and a sports bra, would be the perfect outfit for a sweaty practice, but you may want material to cover your body. Slip on your regular tank top, but wear leggings on the bottom that cover your calves. Loose shorts or pants tend to trap heat, so make sure they’re skintight. Pants or capris won’t make you feel that much hotter than shorts, and they’ll help absorb your perspiration, keeping puddles of sweat off your mat. How to hydrate: Make sure to drink water throughout the day to prevent dehydration during class. Also, bring an insulated water …

Fitness Tip: Post-Workout Recovery

A good workout isn’t just about what happens when you are burning those calories. What you do immediately after exercising affects how your body reacts and responds to your hard work, so make the most of your next sweat session with these post-workout must dos. Re-hydrate: Not drinking enough during your workout can lead to fatigue, dizziness, and headaches afterward, so save yourself from a bad day and take a water break after your workout. If you’ve just finished a particularly intense workout, a sports drink or coconut water may be better: they will help replenish electrolytes like sodium and potassium that you’ve lost during your workout. Whatever you choose, make sure you’re replenishing lost water stores in your body as soon as possible after a workout. Stretch out: Never finish a workout without spending a few minutes stretching your tired muscles; giving your body a much-needed stretch will ensure that you increase your flexibility and ease delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) the next day. Grab a snack: That little post-workout snack offers more benefits than just quieting hunger — it also helps you get the most benefits from your workout. Your snack should be a mix of protein and carbs: eating protein …

10 Foods Fit Women Need:

Are you picking the proper fueling foods? Here are 10 essential items active women need in their pantries, refrigerators and freezers. These foods are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other nutrients to keep you fueled, full, and ready to take on the world! 1. Oatmeal. Soluble fiber from oatmeal, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.  2. Berries. A handful of frozen berries adds antioxidants and fiber to your morning smoothie or oatmeal. Blueberries are only 80 calories per cup, and they pack a powerful nutrition punch by supporting brain, eye and heart health. 3. Fish.  Fatty fish are one of the best foods sources of essential omega-3 fatty acids and also provide vitamin D, a critical nutrient that many women lack (it works with calcium to preserve bone strength). 4. Flaxseed.  Not a seafood fan? Flaxseeds are also rich in omega-3 fats, and they’re also filled with fiber. Mix a spoonful into oatmeal, Greek yogurt or smoothies to add flavor, texture and nutrition. 5. Quinoa. It contains all 9 essential amino acids as well as bone-boosting minerals like copper, phosphorous, iron and magnesium. 6. Greek yogurt.  With twice as much protein as regular yogurt, the Greek version helps …

Fitness Tip: 5 Stretches that will Make You a Faster Runner

Whether you’re a newbie runner who has just strapped on her brand-new sneakers or a seasoned, running pro, there’s always room to get a little bit faster, right? “Most people think that stretching is boring, but stretching regularly increases flexibility and range of motion, allowing for a stronger stride,” says Jen Smith, group fitness director at Equinox Fitness Club in Marina del Rey, California, who created the below routine. “It also improves circulation greatly to keep muscles warm and speeds recovery after injury.” Table Fold Find a table or ledge that is as high as the full length of your leg. Stand facing the ledge arm’s distance away, feet shoulder-width apart, hands on the ledge or table at shoulder height. Take a few steps back and bend at the waist until your spine is parallel with the floor. Be sure to stretch your hips away from the wall, lifting your lower belly in and back. Lengthen your lower back but be sure to keep the pelvis stable. Stretch the crown of your head forward holding this position for 10 breaths. If you feel after 10 breaths, you can lower your hands halfway down, carefully lower then stay there for 10 …

3 Reasons Why You Should Try Beach Volleyball for Your Next Workout

There are so many fun fitness activities in summer! From splashing in the waves to hiking and biking, it’s a great time of year to get outside. One of our favorite summer sports to play though is beach volleyball. Not only is beach volleyball fun, but it’s an excellent workout. Read on for three reasons why you should try beach volleyball! 3 Reasons Why Beach Volleyball Is a Good Workout 1. It burns calories. Because you’re in the sand, which is an unstable surface that’s harder to move in than on grass or concrete, an hour-long game of beach volleyball burns quite a few calories. From all the running, jumping and diving, you can expect to burn 484 calories an hour. 2. It’s a full-body workout. Beach volleyball uses every part of your body. You use your arms, shoulders and chest to bump, spike and serve the volleyball; you use your legs to run through that sand and squat down to reach the volleyball; and you use your core to stay balanced while you do all that. Beach volleyball is truly a full-body workout! 3. It doesn’t feel like “working out.” This is perhaps the best reason of all! Because you’re so focused on the beach volleyball game …

Fit Tip: 101 Greatest Running Tips

It can be tough to stay motivated- especially if you’re tired or the weather sucks. But we’ve got 101 reasons why you can’t quit… “Stop fighting it!” That’s what a fellow marathoner yelled at me years ago in the middle of a very windy out-and-back marathon. “Don’t fight the wind, man,” he said. “Wait until the turnaround, then pick up the pace when the wind is at your back.” The sheer simplicity of that advice! Until he mentioned it, I was dug in. Wind be damned, I was going to keep my pace or die trying. Thanks to that veteran marathoner’s advice, I did neither. I ended up running a great race. I’ve remembered his tip in every windy race and run since. That’s the thing about a great piece of advice: Like a trusted friend, it’ll always be there when you need it. Click Here for 101 more memorable tips, gleaned from running experts past and present.  From Women’s Health Magazine x LOVESURF Fit Tip: 101 Greatest Running Tips was originally published on LOVESURF BLOG Share this page with a friend:
