30-Min Sweat & Stretch

30-Minute Sweat & Stretch Workout

This sweat and stretch workout is a great choice for the day AFTER a really hard workout.

Where your muscles are sore, but you still want to get some exercise in.

We spend about 20-22 minutes doing some low impact cardio, and then finish off with an extended stretch to relax all those muscles.

Or, maybe you just love stretching and don’t get enough of it in your regular workouts.

Well, then… here ya go babycakes.

Happy Anniversary to Us

Today marks loving husband and I’s 24 year wedding anniversary.

I seriously do not know where the time went. But, it’s been 24 years, so it must be going well. 🙂

He’s a good man who makes me want to be a better person.

Love ya Larry Bragg.

Yoga for Everyone

Yoga for Everyone

Yoga For All Levels

Yoga. I used to hate it. I was one of those numb-nuts who used to say “Yoga [insert rolling eyes here], that is waaaaaaay to slow for me.”.

And then I turned 45.

An age when mobility and flexibility starts to head south for an indefinite winter break.

So, I started going to yoga classes, and guess what happened?

Yup, I started to like it. 

I noticed myself getting calmer, as well as my ability to touch my toes came back.

So, I took a little course to teach it and went off to spread the yoga word to the masses.

I started with my little crew at an outdoor bootcamp one summer, and they encouraged me. “Yes, PJ! We would love for you to add yoga classes to your schedule.”.

I did and they hated it. 

Now, they didn’t hate yoga, or my class per sae.

Instead, what they couldn’t wrap their heads around was me being all gentle and kind in a workout.

Telling them that if something was too much “feel free to go into child’s pose”. If you need a break “lie down”.

They preferred the ass-kicking, yelling and screaming, move-your-ass-or-I’ll-throw-something-at-ya PJ.

Not the yogi PJ.

So, I hung up my teacher’s mat.

Every so often I sub a yoga class at The Studio, being careful not to be too nice (HAHA).

I also start my day with 10-minutes of sun salutations to get the blood flowing and the kinks out of the low back, and I attend classes as a student (I especially love attending yoga classes when I travel).

So, if you are one of those people who claim they hate yoga – please don’t.

Cause it is whatever you set your intentions to be.

Try this workout and make your intention to be curious. Curious on learning how to slow down and breathe.

From there who knows maybe you might actually find yourself rolling your mat out more often, instead of your eyes.

Partner Stretches

Partner Stretches

Partner Stretches

Have you ever had a Thai massage? OMG, if you haven’t you must! It’s like yoga, but someone else does all the heavy lifting.

You just lie there while someone else stretches you. It’s pure bliss.

I have had a few and even took a Thai Yoga Massage course a number of years ago.

But, another way to bliss (which is also much easier on the the ol’ wallet) is to stretch with a partner.

A partner stretch workout (where one person guides your limbs into deep stretches) can help you:

  • Relax
  • Refresh
  • Lengthen
  • Improve your mobility

Partner Stretches

Today’s workout guides you through a 17-minute partner stretch session. I emphasize opening the hips, stretching the hamstrings and making the low back all happy and smiley (low backs can smile – honest.).

In this workout I take you step-by-step through each stretch, so you can confidently stretch your partner.

Afterwards all you have to do is rewind the workout for your partner to listen to my cues while you get to lie there and be stretched!

Awesome, eh?

In this video loving husband got all the love.

Me. I got nothing. No stretches. No bliss. Nothing.

He owes me.
