gooooooood evening, lovebugs!
another week on the grind and into prep, which means another week closer to show day. i’m 29 days out and feeling good! my diet, even though i’m on low carbs, has been surprisingly fine and i’ve been kicking butt in the gym. YES.
or should i say the gym has been kicking my butt, because girl, i’m SORE.
chris changed up my training last week from a 5 day split (legs/back/chest/arms/shoulders) to a 3 day split (pull/push/legs).
[ if you want me to make a post explaining my training, or anything related to training, leave a comment! ]
but today let’s talk about being sore.
so many people workout, get sore, decide to take a few days off, workout again, get sore AGAIN, and the ruthless cycle continues.
c’mon..admit it. we’ve all done it at least once.
to combat the soreness and push through those workouts, stretching is key.
this has been something i’ve implemented into my workouts a lot more recently. (shout out to taybaby for getting me back on my stretching game!)
flexibility not only helps with your lifts, range of motion, etc., but also with posing!
there are several tools you can use to help with your stretching like bands, balls, machines, and my personal favorite, rollers.
last week, i wrote over on the rock rep fit blog all about fascia and rolling out!
fascia? what the heck is fascia? well lucky for you i gave the down low on rolling out.
