PROGRAMMING TIPS FOR FALL 21 Oct 2013
I've heard from many Lithers, when they first start Lithing, that they were already working out every day, thinking that they were ‘fit’ and had just hit that inevitable plateau with their results. Then, they realize, Lithe.Is.Different.
have specifically designed Lithe around a sculpting regimen and
cheer-based cardio (Cardio-Cheer-Sculpting®) that will give you
unparalleled results…and I've put a system in place that assures you
will never plateau. By
constantly updating and adding workouts, customizing classes to the
season, and orchestrating the monthly class schedules so you almost
can't avoid variety in your workout, you'll never get bored, and never
stop seeing results.
To every thing, there is a season...
Just like eating seasonally is important, it’s just as important to work your body in unison with the seasons and what you’re are taking in food-wise. During the fall, we get back to the basics with the "bones" of Lithe. Our classic, grounded, sculpting workouts return to the studios in a big way: Higher Power, Waspie, Hot Legs, Cinch, and Skinny Jeans take the place of summertime's high-energy favorites. Why? We turn inward, are more lethargic and tight as the weather turns cooler. Guess what? Your body knows this, too! Without even realizing it, you ground your body for colder weather as well as decreasing sunlight and serotonin levels. Have you been eating processed, starchy food? Try to stop. Right now is a crucial time to winterize your diet, balance your body and your blood sugar with more protein (veggie or animal) and nutrient-rich veggies.
So remember, to get the most out of Lithe right now, embrace the variety (and the classics) and continue to push yourself (hold those bands longer and pick up those 5 and 8lb weights!). You'll love the results!Image of Lithe Instructor Cat Kiernan wearing Lithe via Dom
