My Post Workout Routine!
Fall is my favorite time to work out in the great outdoors because I don’t feel like I’m going to die of the heat! I feel like I’m always saying this, but I’ve recently gotten back into a fitness routine and one of the things that has been hardest for me is post workout care. I used to have a bad habit of doing a 30 minute run and then just laying down or getting in my car for an hour-not good! It’s really important to cool down, just like you would warm up before a workout, this helps to keep your muscles from being in so much pain later on. Here’s my tips for a good post workout routine: 

My Post Workout Routine!

Stretch those legs!
I do a lot of leg stretches after a workout. I’m very prone to shin splints so this is especially important for me. I stretch my calves, shins, hamstrings, and everything else that could possibly get irritated when I wake up the next day. It’s important to do this for at least 15 minutes.

Get a good ambient playlist! I like to listen to instrumental hip hop while I’m actually working out because I enjoy having a good beat to keep pace to. But post workout? Break out some light, ambient music that will help relax your mind while your body winds down. Here’s a selection of my favorite ambient music:

Get a snack!
These are snack squares from goodnessknows® and come in three flavors:

goodnessknows® Cranberry, Almond, Dark Chocolate
goodnessknows® Apple, Almond & Peanut, Dark Chocolate
goodnessknows® Peach & Cherry, Almond, Dark Chocolate

It’s important to refuel after a workout and replenish some of what you’re worked off. I eat these while I’m doing my stretches and listening to my playlist, it’s a great way to chill for 20 minutes and take a break from a good workout session!

I found these at Walmart near the cash registers (mine were towards the bottom so you might have to hunt for them), but I was lucky enough to get to try one at an in store demo! If you’re interested, here’s a coupon, too!

    Fall is my favorite time to run outdoors too! These are great tips! I like to reward myself after a great run and what a better way to do than snack squares! (client)

      Same! I’m going to get sad when it snows and I can’t run outdoors, anymore!
