During the winter months movement is even more important than it was in the summer.
Exercise helps to circulate and move energy through the body. It also helps to warm and balance hormonal levels in the body.
The best movements for creating warmth and circulation are full body functional movements, like squatting, bending, twisting, pushing and pulling. You can even combine some of these movements to create a whole body exercise. For example, a dumbbell squat press, a bend with a pull, or a twist with a push. The combinations are endless.
Exercise can be a fun experience and it doesn’t have to be grueling hard work. Especially in the winter when there’s not as much light and we’re sleeping more, you want to avoid pushing your body as hard as you did in the summer when the days are longer. Instead move more efficiently with less energy depletion.
I suggest making movement more about quality not quantity. You can energize your body with the right exercises while conserving energy for other things in your life.
I love helping clients develop fun, functional programs that are specific to their needs. I’ll show you how functional exercise can not only be fun and rewarding but actually CREATE energy for your life.
