Warm Up And Cool Down

Warming up and cooling down is essential to remaining safe before and after a workout. A warm up helps to get your muscles ready for all of the movement that they are about to be put through, and gently warms up the systems in your body that are also going to be used. This way, you won’t burn yourself out too fast as your body will be ready for what is about to come. Cooling down is also important as it avoids your body just having to unexpectedly stop what it’s doing and calm down. 

Every professional will tell you the importance of doing this, so make sure that you listen and take any other advice they may have such as using hand grippers or trying out different forms on your exercise. 

Don’t Push Yourself Too Hard

Pushing yourself is one thing, but pushing yourself too far is something completely different. You should be able to tell the difference between when you are pushing yourself a healthy amount to do better, and when you are pushing yourself to a point that you cannot stand. If you push yourself too hard, you are risking hurting yourself, and putting yourself off exercise completely because of the result. 

It is good to test yourself and take your health to new heights, but not at the detriment of your health. If you want to build up, do it slowly with smaller increases. It’s not a race to the finish line, you have to go at the pace that your body can work with.

Never Forget The Rest Periods

Rest periods are one of the most important parts when you’re exercising, otherwise you will burn yourself out. When you are between sets, you need to make sure that you are resting enough to give your body back the energy that it needs to exercise some more. Some people try to skip their rest periods thinking that it will get them through their workout quicker, but all it does is increase the danger of injury. 

If you speak to a professional, or look it up online, you will find the ideal time for resting between sets. Do what’s best for you, just make sure that you’re rested enough that you don’t collapse. 

We hope that you have found this article helpful, and now see some of the things that you should be doing to keep yourself safe when working out. It’s super important that you take your safety seriously when you are working out, because you don’t want to end up injured and in pain. We wish you the very best of luck, and hope that you manage to stay safe when completing your workouts.

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
