Adding Energy Cultivation Movements To Your Workouts
It’s a fact: during your workouts you spend a lot of energy. The more intense the workout the more energy you spend. That’s all well and good when you’re healthy, have your basic needs taken care of, a low stress work environment, are well hydrate and enjoy highly nutritious food every single day.
A large part of the population, however is a little different. Living in a high stressed environment either because of their dollar being spread thinner or work is more hectic with e-mails popping in on their phones along with text messages and heart stopping ring tones. Television shows also only add to the stress and the spending of energy dealing with that newly created stress.
What’s been working really well for my clients is the addition of zone (or energy cultivating) exercises at the end of their workout. It helps you “cool down” and re energize you by calming the nervous system down quickly.
I would highly recommend throwing a few minutes of the Energy Push, Thoracic Mobilizations or Wood Chops at the end of your workouts.
